Games of Skill

We previously discussed why there aren't many top-ranked Asian athletes. But there is one area of sports where Asians dominate - E-Sports. Esports comprises a large swathe of video game genres, but the most common esports video game genres are multiplayer online battle arena games (like League of Legends, DOTA 2, and Smite); first-person shooter games (like Counter-Strike and Call of Duty); fighting games (like Street Fighter, Super Smash Brothers, and Mortal Kombat); digital collectible card games (like Hearthstone), battle royale games (like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite Battle Royale); and real-time strategy games (like StarCraft and WarCraft).

Games of Chance

Because you didn't get your Dose of Asianess last week, this week is a two-fer. The only thing Asians like better than games of skill (like Esports), are games of chance. Asians have an especially strong love of gambling.
