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.
