Should the world's best video game players -- those who earn six figures and play professionally -- be considered athletes? Are they on par with Olympians?

Athletes Do not sit on their asses pushing buttons, killing Zombies, and smoking weed while they do. LoL. 
My answer is no, but consider the following; poker is already a televised sport. All they do is sit, think and make a move which close to what gamers do. The question is, what constitute a sport? 
+Jose Garcia And in South Korea, pro gaming is televised, too. They call themselves e-sports athletes there. Thanks for the interesting points on this. 
no not even but I'm disappointed pole dancing is not an Olympic sport yet!
@Mike F. That actuall requieres more phisical skills than playing games. Pole dancing could like gymnasion. That's not a bad point you got there.
Seriously? Lolz thought this was a repost from the onion
