Jay And Silent Bob Actor Jason Mewes Believes ESports Is A Legitimate Sport

For what it’s worth, the new movie Noobz, which is now out on DVD after a brief and limited theatrical run, celebrates eSports. The independent comedy was filmed in Hollywood by writer/director/producer Blake Freeman and puts pro gaming front and center. There are even cameos from pro gamers in the movie. One of the bigger names in the movie is Jason Mewes, who’s best known for his role as Jay in Kevin Smith’s Jay and Silent Bob movie franchise. Mewes, a diehard gamer, talks about the explosion of eSports and explains why he believes pro gaming is a legitimate sport in this exclusive interview.

Is that actually happening?

You know what, I'm not gonna lie - I'd prefer a Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back 2. That would be colossal.

Jay and Silent Bob Strikes back 2? YES!! Someone make it happen! It would be difficult getting all the cameos in probably but damn the first one was hilarious.

People consider Golf a real sport. Why not pro-gaming?
Megaton  +   780d ago
While yes, I agree it's silly for golf to be categorized as a sport next to things that actually require serious physical exertion, I still disagree that gaming is a sport. It would be like considering checkers a sport. At best, it requires strategic thinking and good hand-eye coordination, but it's not a physical activity.

Look at the definition of sport. It doesn't say anything about extreme physical exertion.

Anyone fancy a game of Curling?
Jsynn7  +   780d ago
If millions of people played checkers and got so much media attention that global leagues and tournements, big corporations would sponsor them, people would argue that it is a legit sport. Look at NAASCAR. All these guys do is drive really fast cars around a track and people consider that a sport. I hear food eating contests are considered sports to some. Sounds strange and silly but, I think, the meaning of "sport" over the years has started to change. It seems that no matter how big or small, ridiculous or serious, or physically demanding, a sport could be any game or activity that has enough people playing and backing it and, more importantly, enough media attention it brings to it.

I use the same logic tbh.. chess is considered a sport, if that can be a sport, so can gaming.

Im a fan of his, and of videogames. But listening to him interview was difficult ... i couldnt make it past the half-way point.

It's like listening to my stoner friend try to answer questions.

I don't really consider them sports, but I suppose everyone has their own definition. Plus, not even 'real' sportsmen are as immature as most of the 'pro' gamers. Try playing with them and listen to the sh** that comes out of their mouths, pathetic. No-one would ever worship a pro gamer, as most of them are lost, sad little children. No offense to anyone, I'm just going off of my experiences.
