I've been thinking about this for an unreasonable amount of time and I don't have any brilliant suggestions. Maybe Minimalist Esports is as good as it gets, but it still doesn't change the fact that I really don't like the word 'esports' that much. Working with that as a starting point, I got:

  • Micro Sports
  • Mini Sports
  • Couch Sports

Maybe we need to take a leaf out of the DOTA book and get a cool acronym like MOBA, but the best I can do is MOCCA (Multiplayer Offline Competative Couch Arena). Or maybe MMOCPG (minimally multiplayer offline couch playing game).

Anyway any intentional work on trying to come up with a genre name probably wont work. This sort of thing usually happens by accident. Eventually some Youtube personality or high profiler tweeter will say something dumb and it will stick forever.

Couch Sports is a pretty good suggestion. Or at least as good as I've heard.
