High Schoolers In Norway Can Take ESports Instead Of Gym

ESports, for the non-geeks out there, are competitive video games, and they’re sweeping the world by storm. The United States already recognizes players as real athletes, ESPN will soon broadcast the games on their network, people make full-time livings playing in competitions and live-streaming, and now, if you’re a high schooler in Norway, you can take it instead of gym class.

Which… doesn’t seem very healthy? I love video games, but gamers should certainly learn how to exercise their bodies, especially with all the upcoming virtual reality games about to hit the market. Eh, who am I to judge, the last time I ran a mile it was because a North American grizzly was chasing me.

A public school in Bergen will offer eSports as an elective in August.

Thankfully, the class, which is five-hours each week, includes 90 minutes of “physical training.” While 15 students play video games, the other 15 will exercise and then switch off. The training is to prep the players for the specific games, so I’m going to guess bench pressing with your thumbs? Rapid eye movement? Opening Mountain Dew cans and brushing Doritos dust on your pants?

They plan to use it as an alternative way to learn about real sports, like soccer and basketball. Student will be graded on their performance in the games.

While the school has yet to decide what games will be played, League of Legends, DOTA 2, Counter-Strike, and Starcraft II are all being optioned. All of these games are better than having a kickball chucked at your face.
