The fast-thumbed champs are taking part in the first World Cyber Games in Seoul, Korea, which organisers hope to turn into an yearly gaming Olympics.
Getting through to the finals has been hard enough.
They now have to prove their console skills in tough networked games like Unreal Tournament and Quake III.
Also on the games menu at the tournament is Starcraft: Brood War, a futuristic race to build armies and destroy enemies.
With millions of Koreans online and mad for games and gamers, the contenders are sure to be treated like stars.
