Yes. My danish friend told me that parents force their kids to play videogames at least 3 hours a day.
Here is germany you get beaten up for playing video games, especially shooters. They see us cs players as terrorists, it wouldn't surprise me if they put us on a watchlist.
From what I see, yes. Even the prime minister of Denmark shows support for Astralis recurrently.
Here in Brazil, you are called a bum if you work in esports xD
In Denmark we stay away from school to watch cs
Gaming is generally accepted and gets mentioned in main stream media, but I don't think every family is onboard - then again not every family is onboard with say football either.
I have had colleagues asking about how to build a good gaming computer for their teenager at home, as in not just as a gift but just as someone would ask when buying a bicycle for a son/daughter dreaming of being a pro.
Also Danish military has told how gamers train some skills they see useful, like teamwork and the ability to focus, and there have been articles on how gaming is a lot more social than some think.
yes, little bit like a football match
Esport became acceptable in Denmark when parents realised you could make a living. When I spend my early teenage years playing games it was looked upon as being non-social and a bad "addicton", now only 5-6 years later, those same people encourage their teenager to follow that path.
