    Pretty sure League of Legends doesn't need to get sanctioned by the state.

    EDIT - I'm a big fan of that pro scene as well.

    LoL is just as big in the states as it is in EU and asia. Games like CS:GO are HUGE in EU, while still being popular in the states. Dota2 and the SC games have large EU and asian followings as well. All of them have big money tourneys, and the stars probably make around the same amount if not more than your average MMA champ.

    I'll never understand why watching video games is fun, and why it got so popular.

    Mostly because of extremely large player bases and live streaming becoming more accessible
