I can't answer to the poll formulated in this way...there are worse events in the Olympics, despite being show and entertainment rather than sports.

 

But which video games could be used to play? I can't think of a game which:

- requires some physical abilities (so not purely strategic games / mind games);

- is not a sport simulation (there is already the real version);

- is not based on violence, killing,...

You need fast reaction speeds (in terms of physical abilities)

Yes but not for all games...can you tell me the name of a game which is currently played in e-sports competitions that needs physical abilities (reflexes, coordination,...) and it's not a simulation of an existing sport and it's not violent ?

Guitar / band hero maybe :d

 

But I don't think it's played in e-sports currently :d. That's actually my biggest issue with e-sports, the focus is too much on one or two genres (though I admit I don't know a lot about it so I could be wrong).
