eSports

Synopsis: This week on “Learn Me Something,” Aaron and Rich delve into what eSports are, its long history, and why it’s so lucrative. Can you really make a full-time living as a career gamer?

The first eSports event happened all the way back in the October of 1972 at Stamford University where students competed on the video game Spacewar. The grand prize for the winner was a year long subscription to the Rolling Stones magazine. However, it wasn’t until 1980 whereby the first video game competition was held. The Space Invaders Championship had a great attendance of 10,000 participants and received widespread media attention since Space Invaders (the game of the tournament) was a household name at that point of time.
