I don't understand how there's people who don't take e-sports seriously

Late to the topic but whatever: I don't understand how there's people who do take e-sports seriously. Why would I want to watch somebody else play video games?

You don't have to be an athlete to mash buttons. Some professionalism.

I want to figure out some way to participate in other leisure activities and have people want to watch and give me money for it. How great would it be to just sit and watch tv for extended periods of time and then have people argue online whether you're an athlete or not.

It's a bunch of people playing video games. There's nothing serious about playing video games.

Well, the increasing popularity of e-sports have certainly helped neckbeard shut-ins who do nothing more than play video games feel like they are actually doing something important. Should the rest of society give in to this kind of self-delusion? The answer is No.

And [insert sport here] is a bunch of people playing [sport]. Why is video gaming looked down upon but people playing soccer in the beach is not?

Athletes aren't doing anything important either but society gave in to this delusion long ago. Let's give gaming the free card as well, we shall not discriminate.

Well, athletics usually contribute to leading a healthier life. Competitive gaming, on the contrary, promotes an unhealthy and sedentary lifestyle. I couldn't care less about athletics and/or competitive gaming as long as public funds aren't destined to further private careers, like what happens with soccer clubs and their players in my country.
