Digital Gaming a Sport?

We had a discussion in class the other day about gaming and sports. The day after, this article was published in Dagbladet.no about a norwegian guy playing at the World E-Sports Games. Now it seems a bit extreme what is happening in Korea in particular when e-games has their own popular tv show. I’m sure our pathetic Spillmagasinet on TV2 isn’t even comparable! But I feel this is a perfect definition of when e-gaming crosses over to sports territory!!!

  1. Actually, our norwegian became world master in Counterstrike at the World E-sports games. He was studying to become a teacher, but is now focussing 100% on online gaming, as a full-time occupation. Once more, the statement “it’s just a game” is not particularly applicable!
