Riot Release a Video Addressing the Sport Issue

Since eSports have begun people haven’t wanted to brand any competitive video game a sport or its player an athlete, and that’s alright.

Regardless as to what you think about the “issue” it really doesn’t matter. At the end of the day, if you support it, it’s your game or as Riot says, “Our Game.” The point is millions of people watch and play video games competitively all the time and if they enjoy it and consider it a sport that’s all that matter.

The video doesn’t make any claims, but share samples of some of the times eSports has been talked about in mainstream media. They juxtapose that with some great moments in League of Legends and end with the supporting argument of its growth and the fact that colleges and the government consider them athletes. It’s obviously supportive, but overall just a great video.
