Many of you may not even know what cybersports is. I can tell you that cybersport is a sports competition on computer games.
Competitive types of computer games attract more and more attention, which can not be noticed by the view of the scientific community. Competitive computer games, or e-sport is a phenomenon that has become one of the elements of a modern digital youth culture, but its study still faces a number of challenges.
Since its inception, e-sports has been directly connected with popular youth culture. The first competition was held in the distant 1972 at Stanford University. Participants fought in the game Spacewar: a duel on two spaceships equipped with missiles. The winner was awarded the magazine Rolling Stone, which was often associated with hippie culture. Already in 1980, the competition began to collect more than 10,000 people. The Japanese, and then the American video game industry, created trends.
