The best esport games for 2019

Ignore your parents' short-sighted college advice. If you dream of becoming a professional video game player, start getting good with these 13 excellent esports games. These titles have the official tournaments that can launch you on your quest for gaming glory.

If your parents ever disparaged your video game obsession as a huge waste of time, they're either a) out of touch or b) lacking in vision.

That may sound overly harsh, but there's some truth in my take. Esports, the video game industry's competitive arm, has amassed huge audiences, incredible cash pots, and sponsorships that enable elite gamers to transform their passions into careers. In fact, research firm Newzoo estimates that esports will generate $1.79 billion per year by 2022.
