Playing games online is sports, passion or addiction is the biggest question that arises at some point of a gamer in his life. There is a slight difference in all of them but still are different from each other and you don’t merge them in order to put your stance in one line, so do I.
However, to put things in a simple way, my story begins when I was 15 and I was so much indulged in online gaming that I throw my backpack on my bed and myself in front of my PC to continue the level from where I have left last time. After a certain time period, I have spent my pocket money on a gaming headset, gaming monitor, mouse and other gaming accessories, from that time till now it becomes my addiction, the way I spend all day playing and just playing.
The one thing I have found is it could be better to do what you love, make hobby what you love to do, where your hobby is your passion but not an addiction. Addiction could be used for an amateur mind but as I have grown up I have turned this into esports since I have recently started enrolling myself in worldwide tournaments, I am enjoying my hobby more than before.
Therefore, I would suggest my peers and friends around me to do the same and take your gaming passion seriously, though there is a great scope of winning prizes in the long run where there you have to do a lot of work to improve your gaming to compete and become eligible to enter and qualify among the great players around the world, there is a whole lot that comes in your way to achieve the target.
It might seem a bit difficult to a naive mind or a casual gamer but at the same time it is too entertaining for the game lovers and a great chance to win millions of dollars if you don’t believe me then you can check out “ The sports observers”, they follow every online games tournament, sponsors and the winners of the years.
