E sports

Thought I would talk about a different game tonight instead of WoW.
So I watched tonight a SC2 replay against two pros. These guys were the best, seriously, number one players in the world.
It got my thinking about how huge esports really are. Where did they start from? So I did a little research (Thank you wikipedia). Heres the link to wikiepdia
Interesting enough they started back in Arcade games. Could you imagine a bunch of guys compeatng at Pac Man? All crowded around. Times have changed now - its ceraintly a much bigger scale. WoW and Starcraft must be the most popular.
