we are gamers

We’re sometimes rude, raw and outright disgusting – but our passion has no limit when it comes to this extraordinary interest called gaming. This video shares a glimpse of that immense adoration.

I’ve seen this video floating around on the net since last week, and finally got to watching it. The video is titled “eSport – We are Gamers“and if you don’t get goosebumps at some point watching it, then you have no soul.

All too often we rage our faces off at online players and we don’t always remember why we play, compete in and love these games. But this video reminded me of why I have such passion for eSports, especially when it comes to our local community. There’s just nothing that beats those butterflies when you’re about to compete at LAN, and the intense experience of watching exceptionally talented players go up against each other is just inexplicable.

This is part of the reason it’s so sad that we don’t have local events which allow us to experience it quite the way people do abroad. I believe that part of why we don’t have such big audiences for eSports is because we don’t let people see for themselves why it’s so amazing.

If you’d like to start spectating some games online, here are some local channels you can keep an eye on:

Congo: Kyle “Congo” Wolmarans – Dota 2

Ben “Noxville” Steenhuisen – Dota 2

Bravado Gaming – Battlefield 3

Deviation Gaming – Starcraft 2

Robert “PandaTank” Botha – International StarCraft 2

If I’ve missed out some one, please let me know!
