Take it seriously as in because you can make money at doing it for a living OR take it seriously because it should seriously be considered a "sport" as a whole?

I for one have been playing electronic games for many a years now and I will never consider playing them a sport. It's pathetic that it has actually come to this.
Hey you, yes YOU! If you're not going to answer the posted question, then don't bother to reply!

I think it's because a 30 year old will usually have much much higher priorities than spending all his time playing video games.

Both are glorified positions that don't contribute anything useful to humanity as a whole aside from being one of the many choices of a time waster.

The time spent trying to become a "professional" gamer could've been time doing more important things.

I dont mind them at all but even how sport is defined is as physical exertion, which i doubt many people who pro esport regularly do. It would make no sense in the olympics as some people think it would, and it would have one of the most country biased participations seeing as only better off countries or individuals would be able to participate.

Aside from my teenage years playing hockey, I'm not at all a sports guy and I can easily say E-sports isn't even close to the same level as traditional sports.

You also have to consider cultural tastes that would come into participation interests.

For example, if CoD made it to the Olympics (if any game did, it'd likely be this since it's the first one to be recognized as a real sport and has had recognition in the X Games), Japan and most of Asia for that matter wouldn't participate. They're not interested in military shooters and wouldn't want to partake in it. This would leave Europe vs America, really, and that's it.

XD Thanks for the laugh TC. This made my day.
I can't profess to understand God's plan, Christ promised the resurrection of the dead. I just thought he had something a little different in mind.

I mean hell they took wrestling out of the Olympics, and that was one of the original sports. I think e-sports should have their own event type thing, but they aren't sports in the same sense of the word that's been used for thousands of years, and don't belong in the same field and really wont appeal to the same types of people.
