  • It is not a sport

    It completely undermines the whole idea of the Olympics. It’s motto is Faster, Higher, Stronger. What has that got to do with a game? It has always been sport and should remain so. It doesn't really take skill to play a video game, you just have to sit there and play it.

  • They take skill

    Video games can be extremely challenging. They take skill and strategy. There are professional competitions for them. There are millions of fans.The prize money given can be really high. E-sports are broadcasted to the public. You can go to ESPN and watch it sometimes. Some people think it is very entertaining. So yay E-sports should be an Olympic sport.

  • Not a sport

    .The Olympics were created for active sports like running,jumping,wrestling and more
    .Playing video games are really fun in know but the Olympics were made for active sports not sitting on your bump and staring at at a screen because no one can do that.
    .The gold medal was made for people who ended the raise sweating and for people who train 24/7 to forfill there dream of getting an gold medal,from my experience of playing video games the only thing you get after playing is sore thumbs.
    .There are few honours higher than a olympic gold medal should people staking at a screen get such a great honour imaging all the olympians who have trained Lloyd there lives get the same honour as someone find idling whither a console.

  • They may be challenging, but to call it a sport...

    Yes video games do take a while to master, but the Olympics should be reserved for sports only. You will not see an obese, unhealthy person in the Olympics because they train their whole bodies to do things in real life, not just moving your thumbs. To see an expert video game player in the Olympics and call them athletes is just absurd. If they want to make separate video game competitions, that's fine, but don't bring it into the Olympics where athletes belong.

  • Are you kidding?

    Video games are not a sport. Only people who have nothing to do but sit in front of a screen and play games want to have video games as an Olympic sport. Not too many people watch them play video games, so it would be a bad investment. What's the goal in playing video games? Many teams may have more of one gender than the other.
