    Will Esports ever be as popular as regular sports?

    Do you think Esports will ever become as popular as football, basketball or baseball? Will the finals of say, an Overwatch tournament be viewed by as many people as the Super Bowl?

    It already is by views. IIRC League of legends world championships has more views than any 'real' sport other than the superbowl/world cup now, and that's not including Chinese views

    still blows my mind that this is a thing (and people watching streams / lets plays)

    i remember back when we were younger and we friends over, we'd all be taking turns playing games, and the WORST part was when you werent playing and you had to wait for your turn. now its like these kids LOVE that more than actually playing the game

    i know i sound like an old man that doesn't understand new tech or something, but its just so weird to me

    Watching people instead of playing a video game isn't very much different than watching someone play sports while you sit on your ass is it?

    Whether Sport, or ESport, I'm watching professionals do something that I either couldn't do, or would have to devote my life to to achieve anywhere near that level of skill in it.

    I don't know how fooking self loathing you have to be to watch a gaming stream instead of play. It's 110% pathetic.

    I was so disappointed when I saw Overwatch on ESPN at Gold'S Gym last year.

    I hate the term e-sports. It's not a ****ing sport.

    who are you to decide? do you think you have the physical reaction time of any low-tier cs-go pro let alone top tier?

    let me give you a hint, you're nowhere near their physical ability.

    Not until they get better announcers. I can't watch LOL because I have no clue how to play and there is nothing to help me learn as I watch. You can barely understand what the announcers are saying.

    professional world tournaments are very entertaining to watch, and people are emotionally invested in them, league one is NUTS to see, its too bad the asians dominate it, it got stale after awhile
