There might be a vague future in it.
A couple of years ago there was a streamer called Flo who played platform games and who was famously bad at them, but he garnered a huge following. He did a playthrough of 'I Wanna Be The Guy' that was so successful, the game's creator wrote a sequel especially for him to stream live (complete with almost non-stop dying and copious swearing into the stream mic).

Why would anyone want to watch that?

Because they're couch sadists, I imagine.
That and the whole 'cheering on the underdog' thing.

There was a Sky One version of that
Where they played games inside a boxing ring. That also was awful.

How is "e-sports" even a thing?

I do remember that.
Dominik Diamond doing his best Richard O'Brien impression and Patrick Moore deciding that dignity is optional.

Not forgetting Dexter Fletcher's brief stint.
And an endless parade of spotty herberts.

I liked it when that bloke got really upset because a kid beat him at a game
and never let it lie
