Formally, sports are organized comparative activities requiring "commitment, strategy, and fair play, in which a winner can be defined by objective means"[1], which means that nearly all games are sports if their exists a social organization to support them. However, in common use sports are considered activities requiring physical effort - calling Chess a sport does usually not come natural while Soccer is typically referred to as a sport regardless of if a match is organized or not. The categorization on the wiki follows the common use of the term.

Pervasive Games may also depend on physical effort by players but differ from Sports in that they are play in places where other activities also may take place at the same time.
