Esports still growing
As an adult, a common question people ask when getting to know you is “What do you do for a living?” When I answer “I write about esports. You know, professional video games” people typically look confused and almost always reply with some form of “Wait, people actually watch video games?” Of course people watch video games! Aside from being the number 1 category of videos on YouTube, some esports events have had viewership greater than that of the NBA finals or the World Series. Besides, is watching a game any more strange than watching people cook like on Food Network, sew a dress like on Project Runway, or checking in on the Kardashians (whatever it is they do).
