The human side of esports

If you’ve ever heard of this “esport” thing but never really got what it was or why people would be as passionate about some game as they are about, say, soccer, I have some videos for you. First off is the well known and very excellent Day[9] Daily Episode #100 in which Sean “Day[9]” Plott recalls how the game of Starcraft has influenced and shaped his life. What I only recently came across was two videos relating to the 2005 WCG USA finals that coincides nicely with Sean’s story. It’s fascinating to see big esports personalities such as Artosis and Tasteless right before they “made it” and started their professional careers. Hope you enjoy.

    Episode 100 was the most personal thing I have ever seen about gaming. I still think about even though I saw it about 3 months ago.

    I still watch Day9 even though I stopped playing SC2.
