But, how will they get the competitors to leave their parents' basements long enough to compete?

WTF is "extreme video game playing"? Is it playing extreme video games or is it playing video games while dropping into a halfpipe?

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy playing video games myself, but who the fuck wants to watch someone else play video games?

The extreme video gaming he's referring to is called Major League Gaming (MLG). The industry has been making a shit ton of money the past few years and grows more each year. Games like Call of Duty, World of Warcraft, League of Legends, and Starcraft II all have MLG circuits. Halo used to back when Halo 3 was the big game.

Looks like X Games is just doing a Call of Duty tournament.

Does MLG belong in the X Games? Hell fucking no, but is it smart from a business and money making point of view? Hell fucking yes.

watching others game is becoming huge, because actually playing is not quite sedentary enough

regardless, its got nothing to do with being a sport, therefore it's not got shit to do with xgames, or shouldn't, imo

I'm just shocked that people would want to watch others play a fucking video game. Is this real life? Y'all being serious right now? Fuck, I feel like I'm getting trolled hard here.
