Summary
"Just as athletes from the NFL and NBA have gained fame and fortune, professional gamers who compete in esports-competitive, organized gaming-are attracting loyal fans. This new competitive activity is becoming a billion-dollar industry. However, some people still argue that playing video games-either professionally or as a hobby-has many negative effects. The ever-evolving world of video games is explained through engaging text that delves into the details of topics such as esports and live streaming. Full-color photographs, annotated quotes, sidebars, and informative charts highlight the many debates surrounding the popularity of video games"--
