Should Video Games Be Considered a Sport?
Should video games be considered a sport? It is competitive that requires quick reflexes. There are many different modes and challenges that you can do to make it more of a challenge. You can play on line or off line if you wanted to play with other people. It does not require any physical activity as you are just sitting in a chair but there is a mental part of it.
E-Sports is becoming ever more popular with cash prizes and more. You could most likely travel and get sponsorships for playing video games. Do you think that all competitions should come with a cash prize or should the cash value and the recognition for that even be enough?

Is the market for E-Sports really exist? Is it the way of the future? Is it something that we need? Is it something that it is just right now, or does it have a future? Like many sports as a player it is not something you can do for your entire life but you can do things with it be and still be involved. For example you may not be able to play the game for the rest of your life but you can coach, private training, physical therapy or marketing for the company. Is it something that you want to be a part of? Is it something that you think is just a temporary fad?
