Game and sport are usually referred to as the same thing but they are entirely different. Sport and game both require individual skills and performance.

Sports can be defined as physical activity that is carried out under an agreed set of rules. A person participating in sport is known as a sportsperson or an athlete. During sports, the sportsperson determines the outcome. Sport is based on luck and also individual performance. Sports require commitment and fair play. Sport can be either be for competition or self-enjoyment.

A game is a recreational activity that involves one or more players. When playing games, it mainly relies on strategy. A person who participates in a game is called a player. Games are based on mental strength. In the game, the performance of the whole team is taken into account.

The words game and sport may be interchangeable at times, but they also have different meanings. You could say the game when referring to a baseball game or a football game. Some people like to say that they are watching the game on television. Sports are regulated for recreational purposes, either for enjoyment or for the spirit of competition.

Sports involve activities that display the physical capabilities of someone. A game, on the other hand, is defined as a goal or something that the players wish to accomplish. When playing a game, being a winner takes skill and concentration, while playing a sport requires some athletic ability and sportsmanship.

The individual’s performance matters more when you are playing games, such as Monopoly or Battleship. On the other hand, when playing sports, it is the overall performance of the players as a whole that will determine who wins the game.

When it comes to sports and games, many may think they are the same thing. Both can be played and performed for entertainment or for professional reasons, but differ in how they are done. When it comes to a sport, it is based on a person's individual performance. For example, for a person to become a professional basketball player, it will be necessary for them to be the best of the best in the sport. With a game, it is a team effort. For example, a basketball team will need to all put forth their best skills to win a game against an opposing team.
