The World Cyber Games (WCG) is an international competitive video-gaming (e-sports) event operated by South Korean company World Cyber Games Inc., and sponsored by Samsung and Microsoft. WCG events attempt to emulate a traditional sporting tournament, such as the Olympic Games; events include an official opening ceremony, and players from various countries compete for gold, silver and bronze medals. The official motto of WCG is "Beyond the Game", which is also the title of a documentary about e-sports.
