I'm not very much into Twitch right now, some months ago I watched every night a stream before sleeping (I was until 7 AM watching a stream, lol) but right now I just can't find time to watch, but here are my favourite streamers:

HugoMoroux (French guy who streams mainly guitar)
F1gg3 (streams Rocksmith)
Anything4Views (IRL and game streamer, appears in various FilthyFrank and MaxMoeFoe videos in YT)
Vinesauce Vinny (Games mainly)
Vinesauce Joel (Games mainly)
Loganbro132 (Usually streams SM64 speedruns but also other games)
MacArthurLloyd (Guitar streams)
Jerma985 (Games mainly)
SovietWomble (Games)

Yeah, it's a kind of big list.
How does this thing Works ??!?!

I don't know how old you are, but for people my age, watching other people play video games has always been a part of playing video games. Before online gaming, we got together with our friends and watched two (later four) people play while the rest of us waited our turns. Video games were something we watched and talked about as much as played. I have a lot of good memories of days like that, and a good Twitch channel is the closest I get to that anymore.

yeah like how is watching another person do the thing you like doing an interacting with you at the same time pathetic in any capacity

Yeah, pathetic isn't the word I'd use, but I'll never understand Twitch or it's activists. I don't even know how it got off the ground in the first place. Where's the appeal in watching a bunch of nobodies play a game (that you could be playing yourself) or subjecting yourself to be their audience so they don't become nobodies?

Quote by PatchworkMan

Debatable. I mean I'm not against it or anything. I enjoy watching GameGrumps on YouTube, but I wouldn't consider myself part of a gaming community for it. It's just a show and nothing more.

Even worse, you're putting some gamer on a pedestal because you're undermining your own capabilities when they're really no different from you. I guess maybe experience would be a factor, but then it becomes a matter of patience.

Idk. I think it's just a problem I have with fame and it being undeserved because literally anyone can do the same.

Does twitch have 'activists'. I mean it's just a website where people run livestreams not some global movement or something.

The appeal is it's like a show, it's entertainment, or it's learning about the game, or a sense of community from the people in chat (Oh god twitch chat) it's not that different from most other pastimes tbh.

But yeah, interesting point on the community representation. There are tournaments where teams represent nations but there isn't really a huge culture or national spirit behind them. However, there's no reason there can't be from my POV.

If anyone could then why don't they?

I don't want to spend the time to get super good at SSBM, but it's fun to see people who are good at it

I like how video games are something that everyone can do. I'm never going to play for the NBA, so why watch? I can't learn from them. I can learn from the twitch bros as I can play the same game they are playing without being six feet and working out all the time.

I don't put them on a pedestal.They are just people that know more than I do and it's fun to learn about things I like (and beat losers that can't handle my Sploosh game)

So I've heard, but I'm not that familiar with it.

Do they have players that represent like cities and states? Like a football team would? Or is it more like tennis opens where you support the player because you like them, not because you're from their country necessarily.

I don't think you have to put casters "on a pedastal" to enjoy watching them play. Sometimes you just think the caster is entertaining. Sometimes a caster is giving you a look into a game you don't have. Sometimes there are so many different possibilities in one game that you'll never get to them all and it's cool to see what someone else is doing. Sometimes you want to hold a sandwich and a beer but still want a video game fix.

Afaik it's more about the player or team, not the region. But I think the teams are p big over there. Nearing celeb status.

Everyone does play games, so why does this platform exist where people stand out and get supported for it? That's basically where I'm going with this. Frankly, I feel the same way about sports like the NFL or NBA and such. Players get rich and famous, not because they're anything special, but because people decide to watch and make them special.

Twitch is similar, but obviously to a much much lesser degree. But still, it makes me wonder why it became a thing in the first place. Whatever reasons you have to enjoy it are fine and totally cool, but it bothers me how people never seem to acknowledge this.

Yeah I've never saw the appeal to these types of channels. The commentary always comes off as really obnoxious to me. To each his own I guess.

Maybe because it's not really a thing? I don't really use Twitch but I've been watching Team Double Dragon's Hearts of Iron 4 let's plays on YouTube and I've watched various other ones in the past and 9 times out of 10 it's because I think the people doing it are funny, the rest being when I can't decide whether a game is worth spending money on or I know my computer won't be able to run it so I want to experience it on some level even so. The only people who put that kind of person on a pedestal are kids of like 14 or so who will find someone to put on a pedestal regardless of the medium.

Besides that, there's absolutely no reason why people who make content others find entertaining shouldn't be successful with it. Hell, an author is just some regular loser with a lot of time on their hands. Standup comedians are just boring people who tell us about things we encounter in our lives because we like hearing about ourselves.

To clarify, the whole pedestal thing I mentioned was me dispelling the belief that someone is capable of gaming better than you and is deserving of being watched for it, but that didn't really seem to be the case.

Besides that, there's absolutely no reason why people who make content others find entertaining shouldn't be successful with it. Hell, an author is just some regular loser with a lot of time on their hands. Standup comedians are just boring people who tell us about things we encounter in our lives because we like hearing about ourselves.
Interesting perspective, but even authors and comedians put effort (or attempt to) into their work, deserving of recognition. With gamers, there is no varying effort. It's all just pushing buttons and it's that way for everyone. Only difference with Twitch is people try to take that concept and put their own spin on it to stand out and gain fame. Most likely because they realize they'd be nothing without doing so themselves. And then it just becomes a show of individuality. Not to say it's not or shouldn't be found entertaining. It's the success of its creation and continued support that I question.

I'll just leave this off as I started: it's something I will never understand.

I lump in with a lot of people liking being voyeurs, same way so many people like reality tv shows

that's not for me in any way (twitch, reality tv, voyeur porn, etc). I've always been the one wanting to play the game when I watch other people play so twitch and youtube players (lumping youtube game commentators in there too) just kinda bore me and all this name dropping of them on game discussion sites just flies over my head.


also with games and sports, I tend to admire skill and the vast majority of people doing these streams seems to be mediocre randoms looking to get some fame or attention. I think the thing that specifically bugs me about game streamers is the average person deciding they want to turn themselves into a brand with little consideration for whether they have anything of merit to deserve that brand. In a way it's kinda cool that it opens up anybody for getting success, compared to the past of having to jump through corporate hoops to prove you might be worth the investment, but that whole form of success isn't something I have much respect for in the first place and so I bounce between apathetic and a little disgusted by people popular by those means.


edit: I think it's worth mentioning, I'm not really the sort of person who can sit and watch a bunch of vids for hours at home though. I have to be doing something engaging and only really bother with the odd youtube binge when it's like 2am on a weekend and I'm drunk and don't feel like being a bit more active. I even have a hard time just sitting down for an hour here and there to catch up on shows or watch movies I really want to watch (going to the cinema is easier for me as I tend to do it to chill after an active work day and being outside your house in a cinema with a whole bunch of other people always feels more engaging to me than sitting home alone in front of a tv)

LOL it's like playing video games without all that effort right? Saves wear and tear on the old thumbs for sure!

My grandson watches Minecraft videos more than he plays Minecraft.

Edit: I like how they call gaming on a professional level E-Sports like the gamers are actually athletes or something! Although I'm pretty sure they can rival most any real atthete in thumb strength
