    I'd say it's still frowned upon by some of society.

    I can see merit in playing, but not watching someone else play computer games.

    It's not especially popular, no. I will sometimes watch certain games, but mostly as a way of learning how to improve myself by watching very skilled players talk about their games. And usually not the main games that people watch like LoL. All about the classic RTS games, yo.

    50% of boys in my year are now watching CS:GO majors. It started with just a small group of us playing, now the majority of boys in year 11 are talking about it and sweating it out.

    Could make that case for literally any spectator sport...

    I watch eSports occasionally, mainly HoTS, wouldn't say I follow it but if I see it and have nothing better to do I'll watch for a bit.
