    Well generally "physical activity" is required.

    Again, games that aren't "competitive" could be considered a sport if you put a highscore feature on them.

    that and 99% of games aren't even competitive enough to be considered at all.

    Video Games may be competitive and held in tournaments, but in no way are they a sport.
    They're no more sport than a game of Monopoly.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    Really how does "gone home" or "journey" meet the requirements for a sport?

    It only fits a portion of the definition of a sport. Which is the competitive part (in some games), but the physical exertion is no where related to gaming.

    No no no it should not be considered a sport. Look again at the definition
    an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess

    I wouldn't directly call it a sport, since not all video games are playable as a Sport, there are sport like aspects to it, but just calling video games and gaming a sport, isn't an accurate representation of it.

    Esport is a better term for it, because that covers more competitive professional gaming, such as CoD and LoL just for two examples.

    Just look how many people watched/attended the LoL Season 3 world championship, so i believe some things come under Esport, they are similar, but not the same.

    Sport:
    an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment.

    Esports:
    electronic sports, computer gaming played at a skilled and competitive level.

    In 5 years half the games played as an esport now will no longer be competitive.

    No In my opinion it's not, but I bet it'll become in 10-15 years or so.
