Default Major League Gaming

Ok a few days ago my friend and I were talking about playing online and the topic of MLG came out. We both agreed that turning video games into a "sport" is not really a good idea because it takes the fun out of gaming. Granted I have personaly participated in game tournaments but I never thought someone would dare to make it a sport of some sort.

I want to know what is your point of view towards this. I know some of you play online games quite a lot but I want to see what's your take on this.

In case you don't know what this is here is a small explanation

I play video games alot, but most of the time I don't do it for a huge challenge.

Being a professional gamer does sound pretty cool, though. If I get serious about that, it would give me a good opportunity to put all my gaming hours to use. And I could earn money doing something I love, which is always a plus.

I'm not living in a fantasyland. Doing ANYTHING for a living is always hard, and not always fun. Also, I bet it'd be pretty hard to make a living off of that, especially since there's always a bigger video game loser. I'd still give it a shot, especially if they start making professional sports game leagues.

If they make a league for Need For Speed or Gran Turismo I would join in a heartbeat but making it a sport would take the fun away from playing the game.

Wanna try me on Need for speed underground? I will own you.

It'd be a great part time job, I just hope you don't have to practice 24/7 to compete with some players.

It'll take someone with lack of friends and social life to become that obsessed with gaming. But when money is involved, it kinda makes things a little sweeter. Earning money for playing games, wow. But hundreds, even thousands of gamers will be interested in such a League, most of which are probably better than you so winning and getting the serious cash will most likely be more diffcult then when working at a regular normal job.

Well yeah, flipping burgers is always an option, if you don't want to dedicate your life to doing something.

As far as the fun factor... hey life isn't about prancing around at a Chuckie Cheese's while laughing and smiling all day.... seriously what the hell is fun.

I'll be honest, I don't see myself as a professional gamer besides maybe testing my luck in a couple tournaments, but the possibility is always there, especially since I'm young. I don't know, I'm gonna have to think about it.

First of all, it's my (admittedly limited) understanding that MLG runs off XboX only. Based on that, I cannot at this time go for the team...

However, I don't think it would "take the fun out of" gaming for me at all. Regardless if I'm rocking a single player game or 1P mode on a game or if I've got friends over, if I've got friends over and we're gaming for money, or if I'm gaming online, I have a lot of fun.

Also, people play football recreationally all the time, and they seem to have fun while professional football is probably the most popular anything ever (other than sex).

Personally, I stick to Madden Tournaments when it comes to gaming for cash. If I can find a way to turn Madden into a full time career, you're damn skippy that I'm gonna do it. If I can find a way to turn Madden into a part time gig that nets me maybe $10 - $20 K extra a year, you're damn skippy I'm gonna do it. If you're good enough to go pro, then I say do it.

I'd love the day when I can show my parents a big fat check for over a gr and say "What was that about not getting paid to play Video Games??"

I see where you're coming from Toof, but no...I don't think it will, at least not for me anyways...

Late.

I believe you do get paid 1K or 10K but most of the time, they just give you games.


Personally, I fully expect to be winning Madden Challenges in a year or so. Until then, i'll just get my hopes up and dominate the game online so I can get ready.

I don't care if someone says i'm a loser, you just keep playing your world of warcraft and pay a company 10 bucks a month while i'll be kicking someone's ass in the REAL Fantasy Football while earning major $$$.
