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.

NOT A FUCKING SPORT. This might be confused for a sport because it has the word in it, but don't be tricked by this fucking bullshit. If you want a real sport play hockey, football, basketball, even fuckin soccer. This is a game for "nullers" which is a term for gamers that is offensive and/or derogatory. If you know a person who relies on gaming to make money FUCKING KILL THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!
Esports is gay and bullshit so STFU

Esport is a hobby done by a huge amount of people. It's basically an organized video game tournament, done the same way as an athletic sport. The only differents is that it's not a sport but is actually just people that call themself ''gamers' 'and treating it as like they are working at the same level as a normal athlete. Esport is not a sport but only and will always be an e-sport, not the same thing. A sport is considered in a dictionary as physical activity, not a person that is flicking his wrist and ''giving call-outs''.
Will you be participating in the national rocket league esports tournament?
