WCG's Ultimate Gamer Hits Airwaves Tonight

Tonight marks a night of culmination for a lot of people. World Cyber Games, of course, but also the legions of gamers that believe that gaming should be a mainstream phenomenon. That’s why The Ultimate Gamer is such a big deal.

The fact that it’s premiering on SciFi says tons as well, but that’s something for another day…

Here’s what the official site has to say about the show:

In WCG ULTIMATE GAMER, 12 top gamers from around the country live together and battle one another in a series of competitions that take them “beyond the game.” From real-life challenges inspired by top-selling games to head-to-head elimination matches before hundreds of screaming spectators, the last gamer standing after eight grueling weeks will have survived gaming’s ultimate test and will be called the best all-around gamer in the United States.

The prizes are also pretty major. Take a look:

  • $100,000
  • The ultimate Samsung electronics package
  • And the opportunity to be the face of the WCG, where they will represent the world’s largest video gaming organization around the globe, including the 2009 Grand Final in China

I don’t know about you, but I find this show pretty interesting. Now, the real-life challenges are kind of unexpected, but they’re not exactly a bad thing.

It premiers tonight at 10pm Eastern /9pm Central on SciFi.

What do you think? Will you be checking out The Ultimate Gamer?
