    Should video games be considered a sport?

    First, let's start off with the definition of a sport.

    an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess and often of a competitive nature, as racing, baseball, tennis, golf, bowling, wrestling, boxing, hunting, fishing, etc.
    I believe sports can be considered a sport since it fills most standards.

    I mean if fishing is considered a sport, why not video games?

    "“Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.” .”

    I feel that the word 'sport' itself has lost it's meaning over time. Not the competitive part, not the part that requires skills, but the part that requires "physical exertion". The meaning of 'sport' has changed pretty much. :/

    So in conclusion, what we call sport today would definitely include video games. If chess is a sport, why can't video games be?
    But if we're talking about the actual definition of sports and not what we socially accept as a sport, then no, video games is not a sport.

    No.

    Not because the definition or what we define, but because video games haven't lasted the test of time to be called a sport.


    :/ I mean half the "competitive" games out there aren't even 10 years old, we could label a dozen other activities that take just as much effort sports that have a longer run time.

    Heck no. I can't think of a single inspiring person who plays E-Sports. E-Sports consists of playing against other people at pressing buttons and hitting keys.

    Mentally & Visually vs. Physically. They are somewhat different, when you put your mind into it..

    So?

    In fishing, you are just moving your hands.

    In golf, you are just moving your hands.

    In billiards, you are just moving your hands.

    They are all considered sports.

    "“Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition.

    :/

    Think moving hands on keyboard versus actual sports equipment and more than just your hands come into play.


    To be fair, if video games were a sport then any arcade game, any indie game, or anything could be considered a sport.

    By and whole video games aren't a sport.

    If video games is a sport, then I guess jacking off can become a sport to....

    Bro, it's about being athletic, not sitting behind a screen and using your hands lol
    Plus, sports are about real life, not a video game.

    So there's an untold minimum requirement of physical movement for all sports?

    Is that what you're telling me?

    "“Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition.
