Games & Sports That Could Be In The Olympics
Games Worthy Of The Olympics?
The The London 2012 Summer Olympic Games have ended, and so have The Sochi Winter 2014 Olympic Games! This article will showcase some games/sports that should or shouldn't be in the Olympics.
Puzzles, different types of guns & video games are just a few of the possible ideas for games that could or should be at the Olympics. I'm sure there are plenty of ideas that people have on which types of games or sports that should be included.
Go For The Gold!
One of the ideas, that could be in the Olympics, are video game competitions. Video game competitions are definitely a sport if you ask me. It takes a great amount of practice & skill to be good at them. Whether it's a FPS(First Person Shooter) or a sports game like Madden. They hold tournaments for these games already and bring in a wide variety of gamers to battle it out for top listing and top prize.
Should Video Games Be In The Olympics?
Gold Medal Gamers
The gold medal would surely be a sought after video gaming award.
Gamers would gladly strive and accept a nomination to be a apart of the Olympics.
There are so many games to choose from, in this category, that could be featured in the Olympics. There could be 1 on 1 brackets or groups of 2 on 2, 4 on 4. The possibilities are almost endless.
Video Game Olympic Conduct
I'm sure though, that the players involved would have to show a great deal of sportsmanship if they are allowed to compete. A lot of gamers like to trash talk and psyche themselves up by taunting others. Some taunt for their own happiness. Others taunt to hopefully distract their competitors attention and to shake them up. Also players would have to be respectful to not teabag or insult their fellow players by any other publicly distasteful acts. lol
Gun Play - Paintball Tournaments
There are already sports in the Olympics that include using firearms.
The idea presented here would be for different types of guns.
Paintball Gun Tournaments could easily be a sport at the Olympics.
It's like a live action version of an FPS. This area of sporting would certainly be entertaining.
Another area of gun sports could include AirSoft guns. Whether it be BB guns or Pellet guns. Airsoft guns used for target practice competitions. Much like the gun sporting events at the Olympics already. Categories of rifles and handguns. BB's and pellets.
Paintball & AirSoft Guns?
Should Paintball & AirSoft Guns Be In The Olympics?
People love puzzles! They're great for building mental faculties. Testing one's own skill & ingenuity. Solving a problem on the fly. An idea for one type of puzzle games offered could be like the reality show Survivor. Endurance, team work & puzzle solving the quickest.
Puzzles offer a wide variety of different types. Number puzzles like Sudoku. Word Jumbles(those are ones i like). Scrabble. You could almost debate that card games are puzzles. Maybe they could even incorporate card games. Poker & Texas Hold 'Em.

Technology Based Games/Sports
The video games section also pertains to this but there are other possibilities as well. Technology will always be advancing and continuing to be an integral part of modern society. Technology fits into just about every category of someone's life. Business & personal. Computers & the internet.
Hackers & Coding
Why not a sport/game that challenges some very computer coding literate people. Have competitors play against each other, against the clock in order to perform a task involving coding or security related access to a program or network. Much like Mark Zuckerberg's character in the movie "the Social Network". Who in search, for interns, for his Facebook venture had coders battle time & each other also while drinking alcohol. Obviously there wouldn't be any drinking in the Olympics. Also, on a side note....from what I've read, that movie is a fictionalized account of the happenings, aside from some key elements.
