I'm totally opposed for video games in Olympic games, because its just not the same public: imagine a Olympic public watching a gaming competition, they would just simply leave or even worse: laugh at it.

MLG, LNP, Dota is already enough, dont want that gaming competition chould be world wide known as Olympic Games; its just not the same kind of thing.

Video games need to stay their own thing. Competitive or not. Getting really fed up with this whole "sport" BS.

I don't see this even being a possibility for at least 50 years. Video games don't have the history. Most Olympic events have been practiced for a least 100 years. Who knows what form video games will have by then.
