Esports Ambition and
Talent
 

When a young child shines at activities like chess, playing the guitar, maths, tennis, football or public speaking parents and carers are used to recognising talent and helping them develop. However, when a child rises to the top of their age group in competitive video games we are often blind to their talent and opportunities.

The British Esports Association is a not-for-profit national body established to promote esports in the UK, increase its level of awareness, improve standards and inspire future talent.

It helps teachers, parents, carers and advocates distinguish between obsession and discipline in their children’s video game playing. This opens the door to the adults in children’s lives being ambitious about their game playing and celebrating successes as they would when children pass music exams, win at football and so on.

Esports offers an opportunity not only to prize money (at the top level) and status, but also international recognition, travel, personal development and career potential. There are many roles in esports outside of the professional player position, such as coaching, content creation, management, commentating, production and more.

Below is a list of games that are all played competitively in competitions that require high skill, training and talent. Unlike other video games, Esports are typically played competitively with many people tuning in to watch tournaments online on livestream platforms such as Twitch.

British Esports also runs the British Esports Championships for school and college students aged 12+, and has also partnered with Pearson to offer the Level 3 Esports BTEC, the first qualification of its kind.
 
This list includes 27 games from the last 31 years, with 806 likes. They come from a range of different genres and play-styles and are all good games if you want to Raise aspirations through esports.
