pretty much another term for competitive video games. theyre not sports, but only considered sports by nerds that want to be atheletes.
i sit on my ass all day eating pancakes. my brother and i have pancake eating contests, the person who eats the most pancakes wins. i train nonstop, its tough because you get sick of pancakes after awhile. i guess that means eating pancakes is a sport. im an athelete. i guess thats the same with competitive video games then, i sit on my ass moving my finger, so video games are e-sports.
A word used by professional video games players in an attempt to justify and prove that playing video games is, in fact, sport. They do this in order to make themselves feel better for having been shit at real sports throughout their lives.
