What do you enjoy more in quarantine: athletes playing video games or rewatching great games?

In this non-sports world we are living in, many are grasping at anything that resembles athletic competition. To satiate starving sports fans, networks and streaming services are broadcasting video game tournaments featuring the league's biggest stars in the NBA and NFL, talking trash and having fun playing NBA 2K and Madden NFL, respectively. Also, channels NBA TV and the NFL Network are offering replays of their leagues' best games. Which one would you rather watch? 🎮 📺

Why look back when you can look forward? Sure, athletes may not be banging helmets or playing man-on-man in real life, but you can get that same competitive fire by watching them playing video games.

Not only is it fresh content, but these players are just as jacked up playing video games as they are on the field. You can see the emotion, you can hear the trash talk and feel the joy of victory with these games.

If you're looking for a way to get some oh's and ah's out, watching athletes play video games is the way to go.

Video games can help pass the time, but to say it satisfies any sports craving may be going a little far. Nothing can replace the roar of a crowd, a big shot or the deafening silence of a heartbroken fan base—even if it's a game that has happened before.

Game replays to watch the brilliance of a certain player or a long-awaited victory of a downtrodden team give way more satisfaction then some digital avatars running around the screen. Fans get to relive things like Kobe Bryant's 81 points in realtime or Peyton Manning's record-tying seven-touchdown game with the Broncos and see greatness again. That is more entertaining than watching someone play video games 10 times out of 10.
