What a real-life football commentator learned when he commentated a FIFA tournament
It’s fair to say that most people who read this will have at least an idea of what an eSport is. Whether you’re actively tuning in to watch competitions, will take a look at an eSport event if it comes on or are actively uninterested in it all, you’re likely to know the basics of what an eSport is and that the industry is hyped about its prospects.
However, it’s equally fair to say that plenty of people haven’t got the slightest clue about what an eSport is. There are people who barely know the difference between a multiplayer and a competitive game, let alone that an entire industry exists around it.
Last year, Gary Taphouse – a commentator who works for Sky Sports and talkSport – was probably one of those people. Until late last year Gary “had never even heard the word eSports”, let alone understood what one looked like in action.
