"faster, higher, stronger" is the olympic motto.... What would be for esports then? I think esports should have its own apart form Olympics. I view it as a movement against olympic scandals, corruption and stereotypes. It should remain pure just like traditional sports then.

There could be an e-Olympics with pc and mobile leagues (yes I know but mobile has a lot of competitive games like Brawl Stars, Clash Royale, MLBB, Clash of clans, Vainglory, Arena of Valor, PUBG mobile, and many more). Each country could have the greatest players from that country to compete and it would be insane.

I support esports and I watch it more Than real sports but the super bowl saying it has 5 million unique viewers is not true that’s probably 5 million TVs that have it on but think about all the parties watching it on that one TV every year my family had a party at our house with 40+ people.

No, just no. I love esports, I love physical sports. But no, the olympics were always physical from tradition. Just make a separate esports olympics but dont try desperately to make esports an olympic discipline, thats just greedy. esports is already a multi billion business we are at a good spot

This talk is only about the money you can generate from the e-sports, but he doesn't talk about the health problems which accure when sitting 24/7 infront of the PC without any movement other than move your fingers and hands a little bit. Don't get me wrong, I myself am not very athletic, but I think this guy is talking like a soulless machine about the huge financial benefits companies and private investors can draw from US GAMERS. I don't say that the physical sports division is good ether and doesn't exploit the fans, but it's not about the money they lose or gain it's about our society which will suffer from not doing actual, physical sports. You don't have to be rich to play football or basketball or any kind of physical sports. Let us not get trapped by ether e-sports or sports companies and consider living a fun AND healthy life by combining both worlds and take the best of them.

E-sports has no place in the olympics. The olympic games are about speed, strength, stamina and endurance. It is a showcase of physicality and athleticism. There is nothing athletic about playing videogames!😂😂😂

*His answer to the stereotype that esports is not physical or physically demanding, was cringy af. Could of easily said, physical exercise promotes good blood flow which means better brain processing, decision making and performance.*

Chess is not part of the Olympics, so therefore Esport should not be part of a elite athletic competition . Here you have it, the 1 line argument that destroys a 16 minutes ted talk

Once all sports owners realize they too can replace man with computer, then its the end of an era that was making a living as a pro athlete. Owners rather pay a micro fraction of their payroll to 1 gamer who can control his team than to pay each roster player and personnel. One ego is better to deal with than a roster of them

I know that I'm late to conversation, but e-sports should not be in olympics. Just from perspective of origins of olympics. I agree to that there should be e-sports olympics where nations best compete against other nations, but as seperet event. That would be fun.

And why would it not be? Fairly easy, most professional teams have bases in a country, such as fnatic being a team from the UK, this would mean that they can acctually send their full on roster to the olympics while the dutch have to got with some team like Echo zulu or something whome still are damn good but never on the same level as the real pro scene. In the case of esports going to the olympics they should deffenatly exclude people playing for the higher tier brackets or the Pro scene which still will exclude the college leagues or country scene to compete such most top tier players wont be able to play. Unless you make it so that you can add regular pro players from your country to fight for its glory, but considering the agenda's of teams like that with overblown performance driven gigs i'd say the cant really compete in the olympics. Anyways there is only one thing that should be in the olympics and that should be Smite, why? The olympians and stuff..
