Umehara on Nico Nico News

A couple days ago, Tokyo Newspaper had an article about Daigo Umehara. Today Nico Nico News reported about that article, and also brought a very good point.

The topic of Nico's article is "Pro gamer viable?" (as for everyone in Japan), same with the newspaper's article. They reported about readers' opinions. (After Umehara's 2-paragraph introduction)

Someone said you can, but by taking Umehara as an example is not a valid argument since he's the world's most famous Street Fighter player. However, someone pointed out that you can't put video games in the same class with chess. Since chess's rules never change, and players population depends on a game developer's move.

It's a coincidence, I just mentioned about something like that. And when you really think about it, this's why video games can never be the same as sports. I can't think of one sport that keeps changing its rules yearly, let alone by fan requests.
