Do you think Esports will eventually become a big deal?
Do you ever see a future where they may be on TV and even a Olympic sport?

  • I doubt it'll be included in the Olympics in the same way that regular sports aren't.

    But it's interesting since E-sports has the capability to be much larger than normal sports.

    Take Football for example, you have tournaments based on location I. e. national, international, global.

    And whilst most E-sports tournaments are just regional (eu/usa/asia) and global, there are multiple games.

    There's only football, same rules and same game but if you take for example FPS (first person shooter) games, you could have a tournament for CoD, Battlefield, Counter Strike, Overwatch.

    They're all the same game with different aesthetics so it would be comparable to having four types of Football games at each level of competition.

  • I misread that as escorts lol

    Anywyas yes I do think they have the potential to if more companies start making games with e-sport viewership in mind. Currently the market is limited by the amount of people actually tune in to watch e sports tournaments live.

  • There was a hype about it being part of 2020 Olympic, but it was shot down.

    They still have hope for 2024 games, tho.

  • It'll never be in the Olympics, that should stay traditional with physical athleticism, but I wouldn't be surprised to see an ESports Olympics be born.
    Nerd/Geek culture is no longer made fun of nearly as much as it was a few decades ago, people of all walks of life enjoy some sort of nerdy or geeky pastime and because of that I think ESports will just continue growing.

  • Not right now. But definitely sometime in the future by 2030. But not as an Olympic sport. But of its own Olympics of gaming like 'Ready Player One' or something.

  • They are on TV. And I don’t see why we’d have them in the Olympics. Like... who cares if they’re in the olympics? I’d rather have a dedicated gaming organization distribute esports media than have it in the olympics.

  • I remember back when I was big on gaming and me and my online friends would play every day they were hardcore gamers and they never liked the idea of esports and neither did I

    At this point it looks like it will be huge tho 🤷🏻‍♂️

  • Possibly. My guess would be when virtual reality allows for seamless interaction with the real world. Imagine having the competitions when you never have to travel from your living room.

  • I guess so. I mean the culture of gaming itself is as old as the civilization. So, it totally isn't impossible to happen

  • I think they already are. Advances in technology made that happen.

  • It's not impossible. It's already big in South Korea (Party Korea, not Crazy Korea), so it could be here one day.

  • E sports is getting popular but I don't think it'll go to the Olympics. If it did it'd kinda be a slap in the face to the real athletes

  • On TV for sure but as an Olympic sport... I think the Olympics require or at least should require physical activity

  • I hope not. That would make them politicized, cramped with charity campaigns and commented by ignorant journalists who never played the game they are commenting.
