Step aside traditional sports — Esports have taken over.

The first video game I played was on the Sega Genesis, somewhere near the mid 90’s. Being the youngest brother out of three, I had to spend most of the time watching them play. There was no other way to watch players as a kid. The Internet was still early in the mid 90’s, and there was no technology at the time on the Internet that would allow gamers to stream video games from their homes.
