    TBH, I've never thought about games as a source of money. I only spend money on video games, lol. For example, not so long ago I've started to play Overwatch. I'm in love with this game right now. I already have two characters. The only problem of this game is making good rating for heroes. That's why I've decided to spend some money on it. One of my friends told me where to buy Overwatch boosting for a low price. I think I will do it. Because I don't have a lot of time on this.

    Since I'm here, I think one of the greatest advantages of streaming over other traditional form of media is the near real-time interaction with your favorite athletes.

    Imagine you're really into basketball, and your favorite athlete is Michael Jordan. Imagine being able to yell into your TV, in the middle of his game, "GO MICHAEL! YOU CAN DO IT!" and then have Michael turn towards the TV screen and say, "Hey, thanks for the cheer, internet guy" wink, and the continue playing the game.

    Yes, in reality, it may not be as glamorous or noticeable as that, but for those of you who have participated in streams, you know what I am talking about here. It's not just that you can watch highly skilled players play. You can also ask questions on how to improve your own game, and in the middle of their game, get an answer back. It's not just watching hilarious personalities make us laugh, but actually engage in banter with them as well. And it's not just watching some attractive females with particularly endowed assets, but also having the ability have them roll their eyes at you and mutter, "Creep". Uh, that last one is totally hypothetical by the way. No first hand real life experience with that one there. Ahem.

    The point is: The interaction is the secret sauce.

    I'm willing to bet that this type of programming will be, somehow, the future of television some day. I mean, traditional media content providers have already been providing this for years now, where they will read emails and tweets on their show, and have their athletes and correspondents respond to it. Streaming basically cuts out the middle man and allows you to interact with the source directly, and do so in near real time.

    I uh also do not think this is an ideal format as it means a lot of people will just spam the text chat or worse, and the streamer will simply ignore almost all of it. However, a middle ground can be found by having aides who can filter all that mess, and collate it into a coherent series of questions that can be asked during a live stream.

    The traditional cable TV model is dying. The future generation does not know a world where the internet did not exist. I don't know exactly what the future of media consumption will look like, but streaming, or something like it, could very possibly become the future.

    It's not that easy. Twitch.tv stuff are very serious are female streamers. If she does not actually provide meaningful gaming content, she WILL be reported and banned from Twitch.

    Long story short, it's not enough to be good-looking to make money there.

    The wealthiest gamers make money from more than anatomy.

    Optic Nadeshot is the world's best Call of Duty player. He makes money from twitch, prizes, as well as endorsements.

    There are a lot of channels for a twitch from severe bearded uncles, but young girls with big tits gather the largest audience.

    I still play Eve Online, Albion Online, and Heroes of the Storm from time to time. If you ever want to team up for any of them, let me know.

    Tabs - I'm not much into gaming anymore. I had kids. : )

    That said, a lot of people spend a ton of time gaming. League of Legends, World of Warcraft, Skyrim, Eve Online, etc. And if you have a lot of followers, you might as well get paid to do what you love.

    As a bonus, any Amazon Prime members are now also automatically Twitch prime members for free, so please be sure to sign up and link your accounts, if you haven't already done so.

    You get free loot boxes from several popular games for free.

    You get to ignore Twitch ads.

    You get the warm fuzzy feeling of being a "somebody" on Twitch, since subbed members indirectly pay streamers, so they tend to notice you a tiny bit more if that matters to you.

    I've tried streaming before. I think if you are playing games, you literally have nothing to lose and everything to gain by streaming... uh provided that you don't have crap internet access. Worst case is nobody notices you, which is admittedly most of the time, but it won't hurt your game either. I also find the streaming programs useful for recording people cheating or funny moments, which I have posted once on YouTube to share.

    However, I ultimately decided not to stream because I am more interested in privacy and anonymity than fame and gain. Sooo yeah, but that's just me.

    James, what is your Twitch channel link? I'll try to look you up some time.

    The reality is that people can and do make money gaming. Check out players like Optic Nadeshot. He's made hundreds of thousands winning Call of Duty championships.
    We're good friends and she already games. I just told her how crazy some of those twitch streamer incomes are. When you see a $500 donation announcement...like, WHAT?

    This is one thing I am working on with my kids (especially my son). They watch these videos on Youtube & Twitch all the time. He is getting really good at gaming too and can tell everything about them in detail. I am wondering what equipment is needed to broadcast and also the editing software they use to make the cool videos. My background when I was younger was video production, but it was way harder 15 years ago to edit, and now everything is digital and easy. If anyone knows some simple start up info for this, please let me know!
