As a huge fan of eSports anything that teaches me more about the world of competitive gaming is pretty awesome in my book, and our friends at Right Casino have created an excellent visual history of eSports. Going all the way back to 1972 (yes, that is significantly earlier than the day I was born) the graphic shows the growth in the scene from tiny tournaments to one of the fastest growing forms of entertainment on the planet. If you want to look like you’re a huge eSports history know-it-all to your friends or are just curious how eSports has grown and where it came from then this is a perfect graphic for you.
From Space Invaders to League of Legends, the history of eSports has been long and winding but the scene has finally found recognition and a place within mainstream culture. While this is a history of eSports the graphic also casts an eye into the future to look at where eSports may be soon, including a potential Olympic like tournament and a multi-billion dollar industry. Make sure to check out the full graphic below.
