E-Sport Vs Sport

Strategy

E-Sport---Games such as League of Legends and StarCraft are incredibly complicated and constantly evolving. Teams spend a huge amount of time working on strategy, which will usually be the difference between victory and defeat.

Sport--- Sports people must be aware of a myriad of options at all times, while also being intimate with an opponent’s strengths and weaknesses

Fitness

E-Sport-- Players don’t need to be as physically fit as traditional sportspeople. But it is now widely accepted that a fitter body equates to a fitter mind, so many top players make sure they eat healthily and exercise regularly.
Sport-- Most have very low body fat and highly developed muscles. They are unusually strong and quick, while also possessing tremendous stamina.

Reaction Time

E-Sport-- Pro gamers have lightning reflexes and remarkably flexible minds. Players can make more than 300 ‘actions’ per minute, within a team framework, which takes multi-tasking to a whole new level.
Sport--This requires exceptional hand-eye co-ordination, speed of thought, vision and spatial awareness, especially in a team environment.

The Other Hand

Though we have other people who have different believe about video game and E-sport and that video game should not be consider a sport. Due to that people don't think that and some other reason why, like you do noting but just pushing a keyboard keys, and seat all day on a chair looking at a screen for half the day, and you don't move at all, etc...... Show blow was class survey, showing that most people think that video games not consider a sport.

Video Game is not a Sport

ESPN is a website where they post and talk about sport, and ESPN Boss

Declares E-Sports 'Not A Sport'. Due to it’s not a sport because it’s a competition just for fun and not really big, for example Chess is a competition and Checkers is a competition, but they are "interested" in "real sports". Just pushing a keyboard keys, and seat all day on a chair looking at a screen for half the day is not a sport. But yet if you go to the ESPN website there a place for E-sport, but its not big and popular like the NBA new or football and other sport.

Reflcetion

I had learn that people have different opinion on this topic. Few people believes so, and others don't believes. Yet its call E-sport, known as electronic sports, it deal with computer and games and being indoor. So I understand in both way people believes of it. But also I would like to think that few video game that E-sport can be consider to be a sport and play for a living. Yet few gamers do play and do stuff for E-sports for a living. Also there other ways people do this for a living, Like they stream while their are play for people can see and get money, on a Wed-site call Twitch.tv
