Disgusting. The Olympics should be about real sports only.

What's next other crap that isn't even a sport like chess? Screw that!

They should just include Mario and Sonic at the Olympics and call it a day.

Laughable playing games can be called a "sport"

GT Sports championship races have been quite legit to watch. A lot of really good races.

It's not the Olympics though. It's just a sectioned event before the Olympics begin.

Just saying...

They are called demonstration sports and each host gets to pick a number of them, usually strong regional sports are chosen, plus, the IOC itself can and often does include sports that are under consideration for Olympic status, so it also acts as a test bed.

In this case like Twintail said it's more a separate Olympic sanctioned event.

Just because they sit in a cushy chair with business suit doesn't mean there shouldn't be official recognition of the sport of the Corruption Olympics.

Me too!!

Not really a fan of video games being an Olympic Sport. I can understand actual board games like Chess and Checkers and possibly even Card games but video games...

Where is that movie Wall-E, might as well not worry about actual athletics in the next 50 years because people will just get into the video game comps instead. Who needs muscles when you have a E-Reputation.
