Soon parents all around the world will see the true value in allowing their children to play video games around the clock.
TMZ caught of with a very popular gamer known in the gaming world as Ninja. They asked Ninja what his opinion on gaming was, and where he sees it headed in the future.
The professional gamer and YouTube star had a very interesting answer. He believes that it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the world recognizes gaming as an actual sport.
“For me, I just think it’s going to be time. I think that obviously, the younger generation enjoys Esports and enjoys watching video games. Eventually, that’s what they’re gonna want and that’s what the TV people are gonna want to show and represent.”
“Just give a little bit of time and Esports will be there.”
The biggest takeaway from what Ninja had to say is that you eventually have to give the people what they want. And as far the Olympics is concerned, soon it’ll be less physically interactive sports. Because face it, kids growing up now are more into technology than any generation to come before.
So it’s only right they’ll want to see more sports that reflect their growing interests. And sadly those interests don’t involve going outside.
Ninja believes it could be as early as 2030 that gaming is an Olympic recognized the sport.
