The World of Professional Gaming

Social Insight — POSTED BY Cosmo on December 15, 2009 at 12:05 pm

I came across this documentary on professional video game players or “cyber-athletes” as they like to call themselves. I thought it was an interesting insight into the many manifestations of human obsession, the quest for social validation, and the increasing number of real opportunities that the virtual world of computers is offering to  modern society – its also very funny to watch these computer nerds who are living their dream by becoming professionals at misspending their youth…

If you’re interested in this kind of thing the original gamer documentary, called King of Kong, about the world’s best 80s arcade players is available on BrainwavingTV – its totally hilarious.
