Hey, why don't we go outside to play a sport or something? We should be active and play some basketball instead of just sitting here playing video games.
Not now, I'm still having fun doing this. Regardless, we are playing a sport! Esports is a legitimate sport, and when it gets added to the Olympics you'll have heard it here first.
Ehhh I don't really agree. How could this be a sport? We're just sitting here barely moving! How could you compare this to other sports where you run around and there's a lot of activity?
Don't focus too much on the physical aspect, as esports competitions are just as competitive as sporting events and often sell more tickets than the latter. Also, sports such as darts don't require that much physical activity either.
I guess you have a point, but I'm still not buying it. Who even considers it a sport anyway?
It's already been added as a sport for the upcoming Asian Games and many American Universities are offering varsity scholarships for video game players. You don't have to call it a sport if you don't want to, just don't ignore it as a major industry.
