eSports (or electronic sports) are successful competitive PC & console games turned sports due to their quality of being fascinating to play and watch. Some are played in a team vs team format (and could be compared to Football) while others offer a 1 vs 1 confrontation (similar to what you see in sports like Tennis or Boxing). Furthermore, some are first-person shooters (like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive), others are MOBAs (like Dota 2), others belong to the real-time strategy genre (like StarCraft 2) and so on. So there’s a wide variety to choose from. The electronic sports industry has modeled itself on the sport industry and has the same basic characteristics: coaches, professional teams, sponsors, star players, commentators, tournaments that are played in gigantic arenas in front of tens of thousands of fans and are streamed live to many others, with prize pools of hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars.
