Fatal1ty Q&A

Gaming for Dollars: The Fatal1ty Q&A talks with pro gamer Johnathan 'Fatal1ty' Wendel about getting paid to play games: "It takes the same kind of discipline it takes to be a professional at anything. Only the best of the best make it to the top and make a living doing this. As for it being a passing fad, I can't see that at all. This will be a sport and is becoming a sport today and will be around forever hopefully, but I don't see any reason it would ever fade away!!! Gaming is here to stay and will continue to grow for centuries!"

Social misfits yes! But which is why video games will never become popular like other activities.

Well last I checked video games were making as much money as the Hollywood Movie industry in North America.

Maybe it's an interweb myth but it would not surprise me....

Now does going to the movies fit you definition of activities..that is another debate.

Finally Yes gaming will always be a pass time just like sports (at least for the majority of people) very few can call sports their job!

Trying to call playing video games sport is like calling poker a sport just not a good idea!
