The Olympics are coming to Seattle on Thursday, and hundreds of competitors from dozens of countries will be going head to head for national honor.

OK, this isn't the Olympics. But it's the finals of the seventh-annual World Cyber Games, one of the largest video game tournaments in the world--and one that many of the players say is among the most important of all.

"I feel really honored" to be playing in the finals, said Geoff Robinson, who will be representing the United States in his hometown. "My big goal was to go to the U.S. nationals...I was able to win (there), and I am completely satisfied with that. The opportunity to represent the U.S. is really just cream on top of the pie."

Each country taking part in the tournament held a national championship earlier this year, with the U.S. team being chosen in Orlando, Fla., during a three-day event last month.
