Should Video Games Be Considered a Sport?


I believe gaming should be a sport but I think it should just be called an e-sport because it’s not a physical thing where you have to be physically in shape to do something. So I think competitive gaming should be called an e-sport and not a sport. Although gaming requires dedication just like sports, it’s a very different type of dedication. I think people who play regular sports truly have to work harder than someone who plays video games, and I think all athletes should be known for having to be physically fit and strong to do their jobs. Basically what I’m trying to say is that sports should be held as a higher caliber to e-sports even though players both dedicate their lives to it. Gaming is very competitive because most gaming is multiplayer and you compete against other players to win. So in my opinion gaming is a e-sport not a sport and those in the highest caliber of gaming should be recognized for their dedication.
