I have a friend who can’t stand sport. He has an image of sport as how The Simpsons describe soccer in that famous episode. This friend also likes gaming, so I find his comments extremely ironic because they are essentially the same thing, just expressed in different manners.
Sports originated with a way to maintain spirits and morale during times when there was no war, if I remember correctly. So, both sports and gaming are about having and executing different strategies, which is like war in that sense. They’ve even started called gaming e-sports.
