I had a discussion yesterday, amongst my family members, regarding the World Series of Video Games tour stop in Toronto and whether or not video gaming can be considered a sport, as many of the participants believe. A television report that we had watched showed gamers at their PCs receiving instruction from their "coaches". The discussion drew comparisons to NASCAR and Formula 1 racing, so I thought I'd do a little research and I think this video proves that indeed auto racing is a sport, and therefore video gaming which puts a human participant in control of a machine can also be considered sport. Enjoy!
