Minnesota Vikings Running Back Adrian Peterson Admires Pro Gamers

Adrian Peterson did the impossible this year. The Minnesota Vikings running back came back early after tearing an ACL in his left knee last December and came nine yards shy of breaking Eric Dickerson’s single-season record. Peterson became the seventh player to rush for 2,000 yards in a season, gaining 2,097 yards on the ground. Peterson propelled the Vikings into the Playoffs and has established himself as one of the all-time greats.

When he’s not playing football or working out, Peterson likes to play video games. In 2011, Peterson teamed up with Ubisoft to help promote Assassin’s Creed Revelations along with some Vikings teammates. They actually played the PlayStation 3 multiplayer game against some Green Bay Packers players – the same opponent the Vikings will take on in the first round of the playoffs. Peterson talks about gaming, eSports and Madden in this exclusive interview. And yes, pro athletes, many of who are gamers, are watching, or are at least aware of, the growing pro gaming field.
