  2. Rob

    I built an esports gaming center in New York because I want to be on the ground floor and build with it #GameUSA

  3. Dead on! There is a parenting hypocrisy going on.

  4. A guy pushing his son to play a video game for 5 years so he becomes a billonare, sorry but I feel like that guy is a total asshole.

  5. Fuck ESports and Fuck your bollshieet Idiot you talking nonsense

  6. I heard most of this 20 years ago when I was in the middle of it. Although much has changed and grown….
    … much has NOT come true or can't come true because game publishers are (still) anti-esports. Sports = stable, almost unchanging rules and features. Publishers = Constantly churning out new products, changing rules and features.
    Therefore…the game industry itself is (still) keeping e-sports from becoming e-sports. Or gives it a 10 month life span.

    Imagine the NBA or FIFA changing their rules, environment and equipment every season. That is the reality!

    Solution? Power is not given, it is TAKEN. E-sports should be (made) separated from game publishers. Because game publishers are the PROBLEM, the "broken hyperdrive".

    I think I've already said too much but some of you might figure it out in the next 20 years.

  7. I’m trying to text on community, but I haven’t been able to open it: Does anyone know how I can fix that ?

  8. Accountability is so key Gary. Thanks as always for sharing.

  9. I don't know why, but everything that has been said here, I've already known. I felt like I've could learn something new for the e-sport industry. But nonetheless I did enter the industry way back at 2013. Hope you guys have learn so much. Cheers. Hope to learn more from other videos. Have a wonderful day guys

  10. What is the future games of ESports?

  11. Gary, I loved every second of this video!! I work with my father in the family business and talk entrepreneurship with him so much. I have been preaching to him the esports field and video gaming with the rise of twitch and online streaming to deaf ears for the past 3 years. This video hits home on so many levels about hard work, smart research, playing history all focusing around esports. Keep up the great content! I hope for endless amounts of success for you in the esports world and can't wait to see you owning the jets, turning around that franchise, and winning a Superbowl.

  12. esports betting is already here and has been here for a while

  13. This is the second time I've seen this video. I'm officially addicted or in Love with GaryVee. Im gonna cry cause my new best friend GaryVee is online only. My friends mock me for such a past time. kill me now.

  14. anyone else find it annoying that Ninja is brought up everytime gaming/esports/or streaming is talked about. I roll my eyes every time. great talk tho very much enjoyed it

  15. I'm 37 years old and this video made me feel ancient and so out of touch. Thanks for the enlightenment. I need to understand the world my kids are growing up in and not demonize their technology choices, but understand and bond with them over it.

  16. I dont know how much of this guys advice I would trust when he uses words like "Conversating" fucking bush Jr over here.

  17. I was once a hardcore e-sports gamer in Dota 2. This is just my opinion. To me, its either you be really good at it or if you're not, don't play at all. Don't play just for fun. You either have to be really good at it or you can teach strategy, match analysis, make video and upload to youtube, think of ways to monetize & get audience. Thats how you can make a living with esports.

  18. "Moneys not scary being delusional is" Love it!

  19. I would write to you @GaryVee but the texting line is not supported in Hungary… 🙁

  20. Rocket League is going to take over. It's the first game that feels like a real sport because it's not trying to replicate a real sport like Madden, NBA2K, etc. Gun games like COD are everywhere and at a certain point experiences that were invented in the medium will be less vulnerable than experiences that started outside the medium trying to compete against more innovative games.

  21. I lovvvve this talk, Gary. Sooooo relaxed, and non formal. Just like sitting around shooting the shit. But in this case, dropping "wisedom bricks" out the window on friends. Haha

  22. Content idea. Gary does what he is bad at just to make a point.

  23. How do we get access to your Q&A session in MN week of Jan 20th?

  24. Finally getting around to this 😎

  25. Players Lair (Plair) – cryptocurrency streaming platform who’s partnered with Esports. Twitch is convieniently banned in China. Hmmm where would Plair thrive and grow?…🤑🤑

  26. It's all fine and dandy.

    But my late young adult child. can do all the gaming they want.

    I'm all about supporting them. All under one condition.

    It's all done on their dime. Not mine.

  27. WHO'S DOWN TO START A TEAM? DM ME ON INSTA @_khristiann_

  28. technology needs. correction

  29. how dumb was the first guy in that video

  30. They had awards along with the regular high school sports teams at my daughters high school. It's already here.

  31. My son got a scholarship for his bachelors to do marketing esports and build his college teams and the school loved him so much that they gave him a second scholarship to get his masters and continue to recruit and build the college esports team. There are so many jobs around esports that is not just playing games. Owning teams, coaching, marketing, managing. It's a real business and I love it! Thanks for helping to bring credibility to esports Gary!

  32. stickin up for the next generation!
