E-sports or electronic sports is a form of competition carried out on electronic systems. Video games, for instance, are classified as a type of e-sports.

The Olympic Council of Asia may hold an open attitude towards video games, but it is still controversial that the e-Sports be included in major sports events like the Olympics.
