Eversince I found out about Twitch I've been fascinated, jealous, amazed, and many other emotions. The fact that kids gaming are making a stable income (some big time income) while playing the games they love has had me feeling like I missed out big time as an OG Gamer lol
I was a gamer since the 90's (I'm sure many of you started with nintendo too) But from 2000's to 2011, I played all the newest PC games, had a youtube in 2007 (didn't think much of it ! Just uploaded gameplay) and everything with a good amount of subs with my gameplay of Quake, GunZ The Duel / CoD / Battlefield / alot of mmos.
I basically loved multiplayer online gaming.
Then I got really busy IRL with everything and stopped playing cause I needed job. I came back in 2016 or so and saw LoL super popular, with streamers, having fun playing the game while making bank at the same time (imaqtpie,dyrus) in 2010 that was like unheard of, I never thought games would be turned into a career tbh…
I didn't have a gaming computer at the time and felt so bad like DANG I should of been doing that! But I continued my college courses anyway.
Then in 2018 Pubg and Fortnite happened, and Ninja and many other streamers got famous.
I finished college but never got a job with my degree, been working part time jobs since,
I finally got a gaming PC again in 2019 and started gaming again
since 2019 have been in a "should I try to stream or not" phase. Feeling like I missed my prime time opportunity to get into it. Like now it's so saturated, but back when it started (literally when I stopped gaming lol) it seems like it was so much easier to get viewers.
I LOVE multiplayer online games, eversince HALO came out on XBOX with voice chat. But STREAMING feels like I'd be "putting myself out there, in the open" and I feel "very insecure, or very self centered" thinking about how I'd be viewed, or if they would like me. Stuff like that. I love chatting on fps team games when I play, but for some reason the thought of live streaming myself to people has me in this state of stifle that I can't seem to breakthough and start doing… I have alot of insecurites from being a loser I guess lol but I honestly feel like, since I love gaming, if I could quit these part time jobs, and stream / play games 7 hours a day instead and MAKE ENOUGH TO PAY MY BILLS, that'd be awesome. Maybe I could get enough to try to apply my college degree to something some day as well. I'm 29 now btw… sigh
>love multiplayer gaming.
>quit gaming just as gaming became profitable to focus on IRL job/college.
>see twitch kids making bank, feel like I missed oppurtunity because so saturated now
>stuck with insecurites to start streaming, have low paying part time job now.
About twitch being the natural progression for gamers to fund their gaming hobbies…
It seems like more and more people/kids/adults are starting to stream their gameplay everyday
and those who get an average of 100 viewers seem to be making enough to pay their bills each month. It seems like it's the natural progression for a gamer to fund to his hobbies now a days…
