    • I do not believe that video games are a sport. A sport (in my opinion) requires physical activity. Yes, gaming does involve strategic thinking but so does mathematics. is that a sport? With gaming, people are sitting on their couch staring at a screen with no physical activity involved. I disagree that cheerleading is not a sport because they “don’t compete or do any physical activity” I know girls who do compete in cheerleading competitions and can not see how someone would think there is no physical activity. They are jumping and doing flips and standing on each others shoulders. If that’s not physical activity I don’t know what is.

    • Hi Heidi,
      I am interest with your views in this topic. I play the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in my free times, I agree with video game is kind of a sport. In my experience in CSGO, people can’t handle it without thousand hours, I have same idea with your views, “Also you would have to practice to get better at it like traditional sports”. The CSGO profession players most of them spend more than 6 hours per day in the practice and the training. You have to pay your attention and your time on it. When you play the game, you’re not only sit there and watch, you move your body and use your brain. In hltv.com, there are competitions and introductions for pros, this also an evidence for e-sport is sport. Back to my experiences, I played more than two thousands hours on CSGO and I trained a lot in it, I played better and better. There are no reason for video game is not a sport. Thank you for your topic and your views, I am excited to see what will you write next. Because your article just brought many useful point on it. They are clear and strong.

    Dear Kaimea,
    I was really intrested in your poem because I can relate to you. I relate to you on certain things like watching PBS kids in the morning while I was getting ready for school. One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was “I remember people would constantly squish my cheeks.” I can realte to this because I had chubby cheeks…Read More
