Esports is a giant industry and it is as it states Video game sports. Watch a pro play CoD and you can see many of the muscles moving in their forearms and their thumbs and other fingers are moving at a quite crazy pace. Video games are a sport whether you agree or not.

A sport is not where you win a trophy a sport is something that causes physical exertion.

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

This should be good, considering that sports do physical activity and competing, and video games involve physical exertion such as moving you're thumbs and requires skills and also involves competing.

Wow, video games are a sport lol.
