Hey guys, long time lurker, first time poster. I know this subject has already been talked about, but I just wrote a post about the term eSports, and the whole quagmire that we keep calling competitive gaming a sport. It’s on my blog, and I wanted some opinions from the FGC. For some reason, I’ve always considered FGC different than eSports. Maybe because I feel like it’s more of a tightly knit community, where almost all of the spectators are also participants, whereas spectators of eSports like LoL or SC2 might not play at all, they just watch. Anyway, you can find the article over at:
Feel free to post opinions here or in the comment section. What is your term of choice for eSports, and for the players themselves? How do you feel FGC differs, or is the same as the rest of the competitive gaming world?
P.S. I have just discovered my love for fighting games, so I’m a total newb to this world.
