Replying to X Games awarding medals for Video Games
I don't think there has been a thread about this yet and I know this is for the summer x-games, but I hadn't heard of this until now so I am assuming most of you hadn't either. Apparently ESPN has made a deal with Major League Gaming (MLG) and there will be a Call of Duty tournament at the x games this year in Austin and the winning team will get an actual X Games medal.
Is this a joke? So some nerdy kid who hasn't seen the sun in a year and probably can't even ride a skateboard is going to have a legit x games gold medal? ESPN is actually going out of their way to ruin the x games for everyone that actually enjoys them. When did video games become an action or extreme sport? I don't know if people have really heard about this yet and my bad if there has been a thread for it already but I couldn't find one when I searched quickly. What do you guys think?
