Mental health worries dominate headlines about gaming. But esports millions of fans aren’t feeding an addiction, they’re seeking kinship At family gatherings I am the de facto tech whisperer – a role bestowed on me by my father, who, bewildered by live streaming and electronic sports, summons me for guidance. For the last decade I have worked as a video game reporter, giving me unprecedented access to this growing industry, which has gone from a hobby conceived in the internet cafes of South Korea to a professional sport rivalling football. Until this summer, the huge rise in popularity of video games – played
