There is a report that President Thomas Bach of IOC have some concerns about violent video games. The main topic for this discussion is the vast growing of Esports. Esports got the attention in Paris Olympic committee. Meeting about incorporating video games in the Summer Olympics 2024. People might think that’s great news. According to co-president Tony Estanguet of the committee “don’t expect “violent” video games to be include”. There is no room violent video game like Call of Duty, Mortal Kombat and many more. The reason is it doesn’t promote peace and harmony around the world. Probably blame terrorism and the committee wants unity for all countries. Bach wants to put less violent games in the Summer Olympics. Bach stated that virtual sports game might be on the table. “So if ever somebody is competing at playing football virtually or playing other sports virtually, this is of high interest.”
“We hope that, then, these players are really delivering sports performance. If [fans] at the end would even play the sports in the real world, we would even be more happy.” Considering the options they might have Rocket League, ARMS and many more. In 2019, there will be a list of events that will be announced. We will have to wait and see what is going to happen. Estanguet express his thinking of Esports “The youth, yes they are interested in eSport and this kind of thing”. “I think it’s interesting to interact with the IOC, with them, the eSports family, to better understand what the process is and why it is such a success”. That statement show you that Esports is growing by the second. Violent video games has been a controversial topic in the gaming industry. I understand that they want to go that route. I can’t wait to see what games are coming to 2024 Summer Olympics.
