Almost all sport requires players to have hand-eye coordination. Gaming and esports are unique in their own ways as players may be required to do different actions but in a coordinated manner. For e.g. while playing League of Legend or Counter-Strike, the player is required to do two different actions on the keyboard and mouse, but the actions have to be coordinated.
Gamers are expected to be quick at making decisions. They need to process information and analyze possible outcomes within seconds. Such fundamentals not only help you play the game well but they also help you in life.
