Cody (Blake Freeman) is a real estate agent that can't sell houses. His real passion is playing video games with his friends Andy (Jason Mewes), Oliver (Matt Shively) and a mysterious player named "Hollywood" that purports to be the famous actor Casper Van Dien. Despite not being very successful, the group decides to take a road trip to a Gears of War 3 convention where the grand prize is four hundred thousand dollars.

The gang travels to the home of "Hollywood," where they discover the truth behind their teammate. In reality, "Hollywood" (Moises Arias) is the son of Casper's aging girlfriend. It turns out the boy has actually been deceiving his online friends the whole time, suffering from a rare form of asthma that requires he bring an oxygen tank with him everywhere he goes.

Meanwhile, Greg Lipstein (Jon Gries), a retired professional gamer, sees an advertisement for the video game competition and decides to be a part of it. Despite having a vast financial empire, he wants to join the competition, which includes old arcade games as well, to reclaim the honor he lost during a Frogger tournament many years ago.

The group finally shows up and takes the convention by storm. Greg shows up as well, alone and clearly out of touch with the current social climate of online gaming. As both competitions get underway, Cody's clan suffers a humiliating defeat in the first round. Cody begins to doubt his team's place in the tournament, but Andy inspires him to continue and their clan moves further up the bracket.

In a moment of clarity, Greg chooses to give up his Frogger championship in favor of going to watch his son, who is revealed to be "Hollywood," compete in the Gears of Wars 3 one. With the final match of the championship being between Andy and his girlfriend (Zelda Williams), Andy decides to let her win so that she can support her parents.
