A whole new world of gaming, eSports is bringing it to life by allowing professional gamers to compete live in front of their fans. Competitive gaming has been around almost as long as video games themselves.
You can basically conclude it all began when friends started challenging each other to best their high scores in arcades. It wasn’t long before organized tournaments started being organized. The first ever video game competition was held by Atari in the year 1980. After the rise of PC gaming and the turn of the millennium, gaming tournaments are bigger than ever and they are still growing.
It is said by the year 2020 eSports will be a 1 billion dollar company. Also, every year the amount of viewers doubles, and there are more people who watch eSports than who watch the World Series or NBA Finals.
