Video games take coordination, Training and are very taxing on the mind. It also require attention, Focus and very fast reflexes in most cases, Even though it is not a physical activity, An electronic game requires a lot of energy to play.
One of the reasons why video games should be considered a sport is the fact that it is incredibly competitive. Video games are played all over the world by millions of people and as a player, I know it takes a lot of time, Effort and a set of skills to become a professional gamer; not everyone can do it. Many video games require strategy, Tactics, And a very fast response time. Sport is defined as a competitive activity that has strict rules; video game competitions have very strict rules that are enforced by live referees.

Video games are a game, Not a sport.

A sport is defined as: An activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment. (1)

Similarly, Webster"s defines sport as: a contest or game in which people do certain physical activities according to a specific set of rules and compete against each other. (2)

As pro stated in his opening case, Video games are no a physical activity. To be considered a sport an activity must include physical exertion.

Chess involves strategy, Tactics, And is a competitive activity with strict rules. That does not make it a sport.

Monopoly involves strategy, Tactics, And is a competitive activity with strict rules. That does not make it a sport.

It is fine to enjoy video games, But they are not a sport.
