  1. Hey guys, just a small correction to clear things up. At 7:32 it is the co-owners of the Sacramento Kings that have invested in esports (specifically NRG eSports). Thanks for all your love and support!

  2. Watching someone play games is dumb but watching football and basketball is completely normal after all video games are just games just like football and basketball

  3. Video games may sound dumb to some people. But think of this, sport is watching guys risking their bodies and their lives just to throw a ball and score some imaginary points

  4. I’ve never understood how people could say, why would you want to watch someone play a game just play it yourself. Do you realize how dumb you sound. Do you watch football? Well yeah. Ok so why don’t you go play football instead of watching it? Well. Yeah my point exactly

  5. as a fan of Esports I can say that not only kids or people that live in there parents basement like Esports but also people that have real jobs and such. In addition I think that it's crazy that by the time I'm writing this post if you type Esports it tries to correct it.

  6. Fuck everyone who didnt believe and made fun of eSports. Now they better stay quiet, and im proud to see how underground communities such as Melee, Halo and so many others are recieving the respect they deserve for pioneering this wonderfull thing

  7. It's not about what the tv person thinks it is about what tv host person is seeing. how many people watch gaming streamers compared to tv on any given day…..enough said

  8. There needs to be a better platform then twitch,can we not make a blockchain platform that towers over twitch powered by the people.

  9. I personally cannot watch eSports because it lowers my hope in humanity when homeless people sit on a computer for 8 hours and people pay money to watch them do it. Seriously the main difference is gaming takes no physical effort and is just you boiling your eyeballs through blue light, applying 20kg of weight on your back and sitting on a chair for hours on end. Gaming will never be close to classical sports whatsoever period. Soccer is physically demanding in every way. If we continued on this path every human would become fat obese white kids sitting on their computer 24/7 boiling their brains and prioritising viseo games iver institutions.

  10. Old generations getting wrong, younger generations getting wrong….usual, what should be done should be no prejudice, no judgement based on a double standard statement and mindset… E-sport prevail

  11. I'd rather watch people play video games than some unfunny middle-aged nu-male like Jimmy Kimmel try to make jokes tbh
