    Definitely not athletes.

    Is gaming a sport? No. This is a good thing, since generally when something is made into a sport is stripped of all fun elements and turned into a way of making money for big buissnesses.

    Are gamers athletes? Yes. I can see it now, the girls flocking and whispering: Whoa, what a stud! Check out the thumb-muscles on that one. ... I bet he can type 200 wpm! ... No, gamers are not athletes, that's mainly wishful thinking from pasty 25 year old virgins, living in their mothers' basement.

    The day gamers are considered athletes by the world will be a turning point in human evolution towards the retarded.

    NO.

    To think otherwise would just be silly.

    That's a big noperz there. Being a gamer, I play them not to compete but to have fun. Not only that, all evidence placed before my post also shows why the answer is no.

    I could understand it being a sport if it was uber-virtual-reality that actually "throws you into the game" but that's science fiction.

    Sure! Let's play WoW.

    *Click*

    Hmm.. where am I?

    *Is attacked by boars*

    Oh crap!

    *He runs*

    Where the reset button!?

    *There is none, he was somehow put 'into' the world*

    Gahh! I wanted WoW not track and field!

    *Diez*

    End of story.


    Perhaps the world was never meant to make perfect sense.

    Yeh but cant you look at it also as, an event where people compete against each other?

    They hold events like the CAL/CPL, Evolution, WCG and etc. where most of the serious gamers gather, with prizes up to $100,000 for first place in some of them. Now for playing games that isn't half bad. By definition I suppose it isn't becoming a sport but for most people it is. When the majority of people who believe in something eventually it will happen.

    By definition, no matter how many people believe the world is flat, the world remains round.

    Post What about this?

    OKay i see this is a one sided battle, but take in this

    With your opinion said about video games and their players, would your opinion change when talking about the hit arcade series, “Dance Dance Revolution?”

    Not unless you consider dancing a sport, which I don't. And with that game you're merely copying patterns with your feet, so I don't know if you'd even call that real dancing.
