With the lack of a spectator focus in gaming’s history, we can look to competitive gaming scenes and see one thing in common with all of them; they are all produced by the players. Because there aren’t large companies sponsoring video game players (for the most part) these players have had to do everything themselves. From funding, to organization, to legal work– everything. This shows a passion for gaming that is unrivaled by today’s sports teams. MLB, NFL, NBA, these are all businesses. They make tons of money, and use that money to make more money. The passion in video gaming competitive scenes is unrivaled, and certainly these large sports organizations don’t hold a candle. This is more evidence that the eruption of a serious spectator gaming scene is inevitable.
