The definition of a sport is: "an active diversion requiring physical exertion and competition" This debate has gone on for a long time; let’s get to the bottom of it. Gaming is NOT a sport and I’ll tell you why. Competitive gaming requires a ton of pure skill, but there is very little physical exertion in gaming. Yes, you move your fingers, and you have to sit there for 12-14 hours through a tournament but the players are not athletes and more like individual coaches. A simple miscalculation can screw you royally and cost you the match, gaming is more mental and reflex based than it is physical.
