A recent study by a British Psychologist concluded that professional computer gamers are not, in fact, athletes.
Dr. Dominic Micklewright, from the University of Essex, found that professional computer gamers have the mental sharpness of “real” athletes and react to visual stimuli as fast as fighter jet pilots.
Similar to professional athletes, top professional gamers have very high skill levels, and earn thousands of dollars in prize money each year.
