playing video games isn't a sport...

Thank you. But i guess to most of these nerd's it's the closest thing to sport they will ever do. Don't get me wrong i love Gaming with a passion, but in this internet age the world has gone nut's.

The best term for it would be a competition. Sports can be competitions, but not all sports are competitions, and not all competitions are sports.

E-Sports just sounds flashier than "people playing games competitively".

Calm down old man, Thats why its called "E-sports" and not "sports" nobody is saying its a traditional sport.

"Competitive gaming scene will be bigger than traditional sports."
I don't mind the word E-Sport, since it clarifies perfectly that it's not the same definition as the word "Sport".

BUT, I really doubt that the E-Sport scene could ever beat the sport industry in the near future. We're talking about centuries of physical sport competitions VS the e-sport scene which is actually just beginning.

I get it it is a huge thing nowadays. But to me personally it is not a sport and never will be.

Yes, that's why it's called eSports. It should be consider it's own thing.

AnubisG311d ago

Right, but they call the players/participants "athletes"......

AnubisG311d ago

I've been saying this for the longest time. It's not a sport. Neither is chess....

Cyro310d ago

But why do you care so much? I don't get how some people are offended. I honestly couldn't give a shit if it was called a sport or not.

AnubisG310d ago

It's ok for people to express their opinions on the topic at hand here. Like it or not, that is what this comment section is for. Why do you care if I care or not?

Cyro310d ago

Well I was honestly hoping someone would elaborate why. But I guess that's too much work.

AnubisG310d ago

I said why I wrote what I did. Because it's my opinion and I stated it here which is perfectly reasonable. Comprehension; it's too much work.
