Before the PC age, video games were only really making waves in the media in the context of novelty. But now, with attendance, viewership and prize pool continually on the rise, the mainstream media has come to embrace the industry. Here's a look back at how that came to be.

Hey guys, just a small correction to clear things up. At 7:32 it is the co-owners of the Sacramento Kings that have invested in esports (specifically NRG eSports). Thanks for all your love and support!
If you want to invest in Esports then buy MTG-B.st (modern times group) in Sweden

You earned a subscriber. I was looking for a video that was informative and well put together after watching a year old Game theory episode I missed on E sports. You did a fantastic job with this and I hope your channel grows more and more.

Why watch games when you can go play them yourself? Well why watch any sports if you can go out and play them. LuL.

Until the developers fucks up the meta Regarding the people reaction, they've been doing the same shit with basketball and stuff, watching a bunch of people playing games instead of playing it themselves.

Watching someone play games is dumb but watching football and basketball is completely normal after all video games are just games just like football and basketball
TeamAtFort (15 days ago)
Video games may sound dumb to some people. But think of this, sport is watching guys risking their bodies and their lives just to throw a ball and score some imaginary points

I’ve never understood how people could say, why would you want to watch someone play a game just play it yourself. Do you realize how dumb you sound. Do you watch football? Well yeah. Ok so why don’t you go play football instead of watching it? Well. Yeah my point exactly

as a fan of Esports I can say that not only kids or people that live in there parents basement like Esports but also people that have real jobs and such. In addition I think that it's crazy that by the time I'm writing this post if you type Esports it tries to correct it.

Fuck everyone who didnt believe and made fun of eSports. Now they better stay quiet, and im proud to see how underground communities such as Melee, Halo and so many others are recieving the respect they deserve for pioneering this wonderfull thing

I personally cannot watch eSports because it lowers my hope in humanity when homeless people sit on a computer for 8 hours and people pay money to watch them do it. Seriously the main difference is gaming takes no physical effort and is just you boiling your eyeballs through blue light, applying 20kg of weight on your back and sitting on a chair for hours on end. Gaming will never be close to classical sports whatsoever period. Soccer is physically demanding in every way. If we continued on this path every human would become fat obese white kids sitting on their computer 24/7 boiling their brains and prioritising viseo games iver institutions.

I gotta say it feels really good to be able to be a part of such a huge movement. There is not a shadow of a doubt anymore that esports will be the primary mode of sporting entertainment in the world within the next 2 decades. It feels good to be proving all those people who said it was dumb to watch other people play video games.

"spectator sports" "you're just watching them playing" yes that's exactly what tv and streaming are for , to watch and this doesn't just applies for e sports but all sports in general . Take football for an example why do you watch the world cup ? You're not playing for them , you're not even playing that also applies for the people that's watching the game in person , inside the stadium. Like why are you even in there ? It's not like they're going to pull an audience out to play with them. You can feel the heat , the tension , the vibe of the game in person but that still doesn't change the fact that you're just a spectator

These guys are either going to be eating their own words doing the very things they ridiculed for living, or be jobless. Less and less watch tv and more watch internet streams. 80's-2010's kids grew up with games. That is at least two full generations worldwide worth of viewerships. Things are changing fast in entertainment business and it woul be dumb to not recognize where the money is.

No Esports will never be more nerve wracking or competitive as the NBA and MLB playoffs.
At 2:02 Stixxay?
jimmy kimmel is an illuminati puppet ass clown. of course he would hate on video games. thats like him saying, why would you watch people like jimmy talk to other people when you can go out and talk to other people yourself.
Fuck Jimmy Kimmel

3 E-Sports Games Advantages VS Real Sports Career: 1. Anyone can learn any games as you like, if you have the talent to persue, you have the chance to be in a team or in a Top Team in an instance once discovered, Unlike in Real Sports you required the proper education/scholarship or else have the luck in your life to join a dream league supported by Country Sports Administration. 2. E-Sports Games provide generation of youth to have something to entertain and dream to be a top E-Sports Player someday, rather than doing something they might regret in the future. Since Real Sports is already in place providing future talented players it doesn't conclude the fact that there were certain condition to meet before you make it as a career. 3. Having talent in E-Sports Games vs Real Sports is quite different. There are several ways to play E-Sports games as you desire, ex. Personal Computer, Computer Cafe. However in Real Sports you required. Materials, Education when necessary, Country Administration Supports if you want to make it in real world.

Imagine when the technology of vr reaches a high potential where you basically feel your virtual space, objects, your virtual self. The ability to feel pain etc in vr. It will change the game dramatically, and mkst of us wont be able to see it.

Video games are a situation of deviating from the norm. Ideo games are becoming popular, changing what people (kids and adults) do on their free time which strays from doing a physical activity as football or fishing or hiking. Thus making people who dont know anything about video game fear it to an extent because it isnt normal to them. Video games have its ups and down, but so does everything else. Soon video games will be a norm of an activity to do without being judged automatically.
