Interesting article from the Wall Street Journal about watching SC2 matches in a sports bar.
As gamers age, and as gaming continues to eat into music, movies, and TV, I think mainstream acceptance of gaming as an eSport is inevitable. How soon it gets there is debatable, but the ultimate result is not (IMO of course). Whether eSports get as big as professional sports in the USA is also debatable, but considering how popular they are in South Korea, it’s certainly not impossible to imagine.
While I’m not a SC2 fan, I would not mind watching some LoL at a bar once in a while.
