Video Games have seen a drastic rise in popularity since the late 1970s. With Esport’s development of competitive gaming and competitive competitions that promise millions in cash prizes, many are debating if they should be considered a sport.What do you think? Are video games a sport, or not? Why? Why not?
Many think that they are just for entertainment but they improve the way we think and our ability to multitask. Video games can teach children to work together. Many of these skills are used to play in any professional sport. Video games also help with our reflexes, strategic thinking, and attention spans.
After reading an article about this, I was surprised because I didn’t know that video games can actually be beneficial for our brains. My parents always told me that video games kill your brain and that they are not good for you.Have adults said things like this to you too?
I think video games should be considered a sport even though they don’t have any physical contact or movement because they are seen as competition and anything that has to do with competition is considered a sport.
I’m pleased to see your stance in your post “Is Video Gaming Considered a Sport?”, because a big argument against video games is that they won’t ever take you anywhere in life and that they’re just time killers. However, in your article, it shows the opposite and nowadays there is a very clear future for more competitive gamers to make a living for themselves. I wholeheartedly agree with you when you wrote “Video games also help with our reflexes, strategic thinking, and attention spans.” Video games are also a big influence with cognitive function, processing speed, and hand-eye coordination. This is a very good topic that will be prevalent to the future, I look forward to what you will write as the competitive video game sphere continues to grow.
I totally agree with the main point on your post ” Is Video Gaming Considered a Sport? “, because the profesional gamers like streamers, gaming teams and all that stuff they all have a designated person exactly like in physical sports like football,basketball,beaseball, etc, that tell them what to do and how they can achieve more on something, etc. One sentence that you use that stands out for me is ” I think video games should be considered a sport even though they don’t have any physical contact or movement because they are seen as competition and anything that has to do with competition is considered a sport ” I think the same way as you because video gaming have to be considered a sport because they train almost everyday to improve their skills like in physical sports, and if chess is considered a sport, why video gaming isn’t .
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I want to know more in depth about this theme and if in the future video gaming will be considered a sport or not. This world of gaming in general has a lot of information that the people have to know in order to understant how important is gaming for some people.
I am in agreement with your take in your post, “Is Video Gaming Considered a Sport?,” because the e-sports scene in the video game industry is just as demanding to the players as in a traditional sport. In e-sports teams rely on coaches, training, mechanical skills, and constant strategizing that is not always easy to do for every person.One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I think video games should be considered a sport even though they don’t have any physical contact or movement” I think this is a common misconception because a lot of mechanical skills is required to play certain video games, using and training with a mouse or controller for long periods of day have caused many players to get carpal tunnel and could end their careers at times even in their youth.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because the e-sports scene is ever growing and I believe it will continue to grow expanding in all aspects. Because of this there will be much more to write about and investigate in the industry in the near future.
