    The Sport of Gaming

    Do you think Gaming is a sport? Why do you think that?

    lol this cracked me up but that would be weird if they really put it in there

    Wish I could be a Pro Gamer in Halo 3 or Counter Strike Source

    I would never consider gaming as a sport due to the fact that most of the time all your doing is flicking your fingers to move a character, which to be honest doesn't take much skill. In my opinion sports should actually take physical skill etc. However, in a sense I'm not surprised that people call it a sport. This is solely due to the fact that some people will even consider poker a sport....

    Definition of Sport: An athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess and often of a competitive nature, as racing, baseball, tennis, golf, bowling, wrestling, boxing, hunting, fishing, etc.

    Gaming requires skill and is competitive =/ so I think that they should make gaming a sport

    Sure gaming may be competitive and or take skill in some cases however to consider it a sport is going to far. I for one hope that gamin is never considered a sport. Seeing as it takes no physical effort whatsoever other than a flick of your thumb. Sorry that's just my opinion.

    It's not a sport at all.

    ...I wish it was.
    I love you, Adam.

    Haha, well the closest you get to gaming being a sport is with Wii Sports, but besides that I agree with Zapasant, it is a hobby.

    Some games do require intense thinking like in Korea they have huge gaming events on Starcraft and the pros can issue like 100 commands a minute.

    (I might have some facts wrong because i remember it off of a tv show)
