Finally, the Olympics and video games come together. The ESport 2023 Olympic Series disciplines still raise question marks among gamers.
SINGAPORE — Video gaming as a sport has always had a tough time, while decision makers have long denied the physical aspect of the medium for decades, gaming has finally made its way and at least been noticed by the International Olympic Committee. Mario Kart, Call of Duty, or Fortnite won’t make it to the 2024 Olympics in Paris, but the Olympic Committee is now creating its own gaming event. However, the controls provided for this purpose irritate players.

What is the IOC planning for video games? The Games should have their own Olympic event. From June 22 to 25, the world’s best players will compete for the first time in the so-called Olympic esports series Measures. He started qualifying for the Games since the beginning of March. The event will be held for the first time in Singapore. It is not yet known if the event will be held every four years, similar to the well-known Olympic Games.
What games will be olympic? Many gamers may be surprised by the games that fall under the specialties of the Olympic esports series. You will search in vain for shooters who are very popular in the middle. Neither Fortnite nor Call of Duty are among the games played, but Just Dance is a Ubisoft dance favorite. Other options are vague. In general, probably very few gamers have heard of all the gaming disciplines of the Olympic ESports series.
Players will compete in these games at the Olympic Esport Series 2023:
Tic tac bow – Shooting
WBSC eBaseball: Professionals – baseball
Chess via Chess.com – chess
Zwift – to go cycling
just dance – dance
Gran Turismo 7 – Motorsports
Virtual regatta – feather
Virtual Teakwondo – taekwondo
Tennis: a struggle – Tennis
Probably the two most famous representatives of the anthology games of the Olympic ESports series are Just Dance and Gran Turismo 7. Games like Tic Tac Bow, Virtual Teakwondo or Zwift are probably only known by a minority. The IOC justifies its choice by the fact that the games were chosen that are closest to the real sport. Whether you want to rely on Just Dance is up to you.
