This is exactly what I posted on my Facebook.
X Games now has a VIDEO GAME tournament! REALLY, not going to lie, there are some serious gamers out there, BUT REALLY, I actually quit playing video games for BMX 6 or so years ago, NEVER TURNED BACK. The ONLY way I see gaming being "extreme" is when a person gets so ADDICTED to playing them they have "X-Treme Weight Gain" because they might just sit for several hours in their basement with their possibly several thousand dollar surround sound and whatever else to hear bullets flying by in the game so clearly it sounds real, and in that several hours, probably eating doritos and drinking energy drinks and soda because they would get too addicted to pause the game, get up and make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for themselves. Might as well put a sport called "Race to Diabetes" in X Games. /Rant Over....
Woo Hoo! I hit 800 posts so far, being this is my second acct. (Previous was Ultimatebiker1220) I have 872 incl. my old account, that does not count though hahaha

I told you about this right? Haha
It's gay as fuck , a COD player , Optic Nadeshot (Who is in Xgames for the tournament) posted a picture of the Mega-ramp saying "Proud to be in Xgames!" yet playing a fucking videogame compared to doing 40 ft long flip whips to blasting a huge quarterpipe REALLY makes sense.
I ranted about this as soon as I saw an article for it on TCU in like May I think. I think it is COMPLETE bullshit that they would even consider putting video games in the X Games! I'd rather have scootering in the X Games honestly! At least you're STANDING while riding a scooter! I don't understand why ESPN would even consider letting video games in!
It's all about the money. Video games are probably one of the biggest markets in the world, and from a business standpoint bringing in the MLG thing is smart. A broader spectrum of appeal means more money. But the X Games are about extreme sports, so bringing in MLG is stupid as fuck
I see your point, but you 'quit' playing games for bmx? You can do both you know.. I mean, i RARELY go on my ps3, but i wouldnt say i quit haha

Exactly as someone said. All about the money! There's more money than there are in movies nowadays. Espn have rights to a whole bunch of games. E3 is starting today, for those who don't know it's a 'sort of' video game convention where teams get to show off new video games in tge works and I wouldn't be surprised to see a new bmx game or a skate 4 in tge makings there. Video games and getting on a bike isn't a one or the other thing though buddy. I don't see any problem with it. I dOnt think they'll be making it a big deal, just a side thing! Won't be taking over anything else ha. I've been to plenty of music festivals and about 4 years ago at download festival they had a guitar hero tournament at a stand. Didn't mean tgey took machine head off stage and replaced them with a ps3 and plastic guitar. It was just abit of fooling around on one of tge many stations besides tge bands. I'm sure it'll be simular here. I still play Videogames, every now and then, wouldn't call myself a gamer, I don't have a mic I strap to my head to talk to children while playing call of duty and eat my chips and soda whilst living in my parents basement haha, but if I ever feel
Like chilling inside, I sometimes have a bash on something or switch on the old snes. I also have recently started to ride again, after 9 years, but back when I was first riding, I played a lot if games, and still rode, alot!
Did this even happen? I never heard any mention of it during x games. I feel like it was just a side thing (not actually part of the games) like just park of the festivities and just something for people to do
THOU SHALL NOT COMMIT SKOOTERY

Its not video games in general. Its just Call Of Duty.... Which is basically turing to promote itself anywhere...
"Riding four piece bars is like getting a BJ from an ugly girl, Close your eyes and it feels the same."
X Games is a business. Can't be too shocked by this. They've never exactly had a high moral stance when it came to anything...
