You can get an athletic visa from the U.S government if you play video games for money. These people call themselves athletes all the time, they think they are playing a real actual sport and they they are athletes.

Not all of them of course, many of them have the logic to understand they are just playing video games for some cash, but some of them fully believe they are real athletes, as does the U.S government....yeah. Our athletes are now fat slobs that spend 12 hours a day starting at a computer screen (obviously this is a generalization, but just look at that pic I posted, that guy is apparently an athlete).

True that. I would like to go on here and say I have rock hard abs. But the reality is I am fat and out of shape. I do go outside and walk around but that is pretty much the extend of my exercise. If only there was a way to connect my Xbox to a treadmill.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

I don't really hear too much about them themselves saying they are athletes. As far as a sport, a traditional sport maybe it isn't. But this day in age when things like chess are considered "sports" and the spelling bee makes it on ESPN, this more than qualifies. I watch so many tournaments on the world level and listen to countless interviews and watch their livestreams and have never heard them say they are an athlete.

I don't think sports are limited to physical activities anymore. At least not in my opinion. I think if you have to train at something for hours and hours every day to compete against others qualifies it as a sport.

I don't consider a pro starcraft or league player as an athlete, but I do think it is a sport.

I've seen announcers/gamers call them that, so I assume some of them call themselves that as well, even the U.S government calls them that.

I don't think it's a sport (opinions of course), and if it goes that way then I'm horrified as this country is already stock full of overweight people and when the only physical interests this country has (sports/athletes) turn into people sitting on their ass for 12 hours a day, we're in some real trouble.

I'm not sure if I've played that one or not (so many games in that franchise), what console is it on or is it a ROM? My controller for PC hasn't come in yet so I haven't touched any ROMS yet.

Who was it that was playing Enslaved, was it you Bonnar? Did you beat it? I'm curious to know what you thought of the ending.

It's from the super nintendo, but obviously you can play a SNES rom of it online. It has some real kickass music in it, good challenge, a fun final boss and good gameplay.
