it is concidered a sport already beacuse the games they have you compete with either test creativity,skill, and esports wich are games test virtual strength. minecraft is competed with for people to test their creativity using blocks. and call of duty and halo test skills within FPS so for everyone who thinks you have to go outside and actually have tomake up a sweat for it to become a sport YOU CAN GO SHOVE IT!

Hello I personally like this challenge due to myself being an avid gamer but, the definition of "sports". "is an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment.". And video games do not have physical exertion and unless you are playing an multilayer game you do not need any teamwork.

But you didnt see this and im copying this definition from definition.com diversion; Recreation ; or pleasent pasttime also the definition of athlete includes a pearson trained or gifted in exsercise or a competitive activity gamming is a commpetitive activity making gamming a sport and us the athlete i ran a few rounds of this with teachers and family members so read the definition of it a bit slowert like a i had to do and you will see it says faintly that an competitive acctivity is a sport.

In your response your definition say it has to have exercise and the definition of exercise states "activity requiring physical effort, carried out esp. to sustain or improve health and fitness." Video games do not posses the qualities or requirements to be exercise. Namely it has no physical effort nor it does not improve health or fitness. Also i am wondering if you have mean "gamming" as another sport. I am referring to Gaming.

What are you thinking? Gaming a sport? I am laughing to my self while typing this. Gaming is an activity. A competition. The definition of a sport is an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment. Notice it says physical exertion. If you are sweating and panting after playing MarioKart, then you have an issue...
