Tournaments are great, tournaments are fun!. Tournaments make for great, fun videos to watch. It would be awesome with tournaments here in Giantbomb one day.
 
My personal suggestions for tourny games: BC2, GoW2 and why not Bioshock 2? Other suggestions?
 
Edit: And MW2, of course, how could one forget?

What if the winner of the Tournament got to play against one of the Giant Bomb staff and they filmed it and put it online? They should do that.

Sounds like the end of ButtonMashing, but still, whatever's fun to watch would definitely be worth it!

Honestly, that Street Fighter 4 tourney was great television.  I guess it could work on Giant Bomb, but i'd rather not watch it.  Tournements are just too boring to make for great video.  Remember Arena?

I think tournaments are great, not only for community involvement but, I feel like when I'm familiar with a game like UT2004 - watching skilled players compete head to head is often very interesting!

Team Fortress 2.  
 
Only because it's the one multiplayer game I still keep coming back to.

Exactly. Start a derivative of Button Mashing. Shit would be INSANE!

I could go for the return of button mashing... provided Gallup gets his Eyebrow in here and hosts every now and again.

I'd only like a tournament type feature if all the games they did a tournament on were ridiculous. 
Like if they did an Uno tourney, or a God of War quick time tourney, or a Tomena Samner tournament, or a Super Smash Brothers tournament. 
 
 
 Note: that last one was a total BURN.

Returning to what I said about starting a Button Mashing spin-off, didn't Vinny host the last episode of Button Mashing?

I don't know. I really like watching tournaments online and a chance to compete now that I don't have to lie about my age would be awesome.

I'd be all for it.  It's definitely fun to see Tournament TV, especially when Jeff is commentating.

Sure but the staff will need to provide the community the tools to get the tournaments running or promote them themselves. It quite hard to set of a tournament for any game that is not SF4 or Modern Warfare 2 how the site is built.
