    Gaming Future

    MrE at 3DActionPlanet gives us his thoughts today on the Future of Professional gaming.

    Games come and go. The audience decides which cyber sport it will relax in front of, and at the end of the chain there are the pro-gamers. Like a nomadic tribe, they will move on with the games or perish in a wilderness of obscurity. This is already happening. Dennis “Thresh” Fong, the worlds first pro-gamer, was able to cross over from several games quite successfully before winning John Carmack’s coveted Ferrari. He switched from Doom to Quake to Quake2 and managed to improve with time. He even played Real Time Strategy (RTS) game Starcraft at a competitive level.

    Included is an interview with Angel Munoz, the president of CPL and a lot of info on the Quake Series. Read MrE's perspective on The Future of Professional Gaming
