On the Scientific Relevance of eSports

In my research I have come across an article written on the scholarly study of competitive gaming. It talks about how the phenomenon came about, what effects it might have on society, etc. The article also defines eSports:

““eSports” is an area of sport activities in which
people develop and train mental or physical abilities in the
use of information and communication technologies.”

What interested me the most about this paper is that it includes information on defining eSports, which in itself will be important to do in my paper, as well as a history of it and the science of it. It is pretty spot on for my research topic and I will be sure to include some of its information in my final.
