A selection from my ongoing project about Esports and culture of videogames "Play The Game Over". Esports are Olympic sports since 2017. You can see "Team Forge". The athletes, their public and their love. This is one of the best Team in Italy and in their Gaming House made his first steps Daniele di Mauro, pro European player of "League of Legends". Alessandro, the owner, told me that players can have difficulties to make the final step that could put 'em in the global scene. "Competitive videogaming is not a game". A real sport in the culture, in the business and in the contemporary history.
