Default OMG!! The Unthinkable Happened!

I just set my eyes upon some fat-ass news! I was going on gamespot.com and I learned that they're making video gaming a professional sport! They're calling the sport 'V-Sport' and the league 'GGL: Global Gaming League'. They're recruiting star players with city tournaments with cash prizes, respect, and endorsement. Thiis could be the easiest way to get money and famous. And another reason for this is to give video gamers with great skill to get some recognition. I couldn't believe it when I first heard about it, but I got some sites that have major proof: http://www.gamespot.com/all/news/news_6029769.html
http://www.ggleague.com/
http://www.gamers.com/news/1399340
http://www.ferrago.co.uk/story/1693

Can u believe it? Gamers are turning from nerds to athletes. I wonder if there's gonna be video gameing in u kids' P.E. classes. All I can say is, I wonder if I can get in.

Well you can't call yourself an athlete if you play games...

And remember this is a games site telling you that these tournaments are a 'professional sport'...

what a fuckin joke! I saw a show a while ago about food eating becoming a sport and I was laughing my ass of then, but this is just as ridiculous.

I can just see it now

So are you saying this is going to fail?


And the only reason why the XFL failed was because it was on a stupid night.

no, i just think that it's wrong to call it a "sport". there is nothing "Sport" About Video Gaming. Xfl Failed because it Wasen't as respected as the NFl. At least that's what i think!

Of course people aren't going look at it the same way as they do with the NFL. And it was only its first season, so its not going to be a big hit. And it failed because it was on...it was either a friday or saturday...i can't remeber what day it was exactly. But anyways what i'm get at here, is that it was targeted towards guys in their 20's, and who the hell stays home to watch some new football league on saturday or friday night?

Video game touneys have been around for ages. You just have to look at your local arcade franchise like Namco. They used to hold Video Game tourneys and back at home there was also a gran turismo tourney as well. Now about endorsement and such I don't think that is gonna happen in the near future. I don't see someone like you or me appearing on a commercial to endorse a game. That would be so 1980's

They offer $12000 in prizemoney every month and have national titles every year with the top 2 places getting free trips to the world titles in the states.
