Also known as electronic sports and competitive video gaming, eSports are an activity conducted on electronic systems, mediated by human-computer interfaces. Most commonly, eSports are organized, multiplayer video game competitions, and can take place on PCs/laptops and gaming consoles as well as table tops.
