Isn't chess considered a sport competition?

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) considers it a sport and the International Chess Federation (FIDE) regulates international competitions. It's something I didn't know until today (I just looked it up) and it surprises me. If chess is a sport, I guess video games could be too, since there are so many competitions. What I don't know is what kind of regulations video game championships should be subject to in order to be accepted as a sport and, above all, what would the international sports community say.

I did not know the part about IOC. That is pretty interesting actually. I wonder if we'd ever see video games at the Olympic games. Maybe not anytime soon, but who knows, it may still happen.

What you say is something that would not surprise me. Things change very fast in the times we live in and just as the IOC has removed several sports disciplines from the Olympic Games events, I suppose it will not be difficult for them to add new ones, and who knows, they could be video games or some variation. I guess it all depends on the expectations generated among citizens and the popularity of these video games.

Ultimately, I think, they will add the sports that they know that people will watch. Modern Olympics are, after all, about the tv and streaming rights and the profits that can be made from them.

You are right about that. If we base the data on what people watch when they turn on the television, it would make more sense for video game tournaments to be Olympic sports. From what I have read on that subject in South Korea those tournaments have a large audience. Also, the players who participate in these tournaments are highly paid and as famous as movie stars, so I am sure that if one day these tournaments are part of the Olympic Games they would be very well received by the public.

Indeed, I know this is a legitimate career in South Korea. Not everyone makes it, as it is very competitive, no pun intended.

I think it should be considered a sport. Even some foreign competitions consider it. It still involves competition and strategy. Plus it doesn't limit you from being physically fit just to play.

Video games should not be a sport. First sport require physical activity, moving your hand all day and starring at screen is not a sport.
I think games are a sport, but only if you play in a professional team where there are tournaments and it's hard

I like video games but it doesn’t compare to sports at all. Sports are typically played outside and are always physical, along with being social. I think it’s great that Wii made an effort to get gamers moving but even then it doesn’t measure up.
