I love video games, even if I'm not really good at them.
I've worked in the IT industry for a little over a decade now, and have always been fascinated by technology. As I'm getting older I am starting to realize that it's more important to enjoy life, rather than strive for.
I've been a gamer since I was a kid, drooling over the NES and dreaming of what possibilities game worlds would bring. Game design is something I've wanted since then, but followed the advice of those around me when they said "no you should look for a job that you can succeed in, and video games are just kids stuff." Now I find myself looking back and realizing that I was in a prime position to be a part of one of the biggest industries around, but squandered it.
Some of my hobbies are game design, film and cinema, and I am terrible at guitar, but I enjoy it.
Ideally, I'd like to find a way to pay my bills by doing something I love doing. Realistically though, I'd just be happy with getting viewers who enjoy what I do.
Right now I play a lot of World of Warcraft, though I don't know how much I would stream it, since I don't play at the cutting edge. I am also playing warframe and Destiny 2. Beyond that, any game that interests me and I think would be conducive to streaming, I would stream it.
I think my favorite moment was just recently when a small streamer was hosted by someone with 4k viewers during the warframe event and just freaked out by the influx of followers. He was just so unprepared for it, and it was fun seeing him break down like a kid in a candy store.
I've mostly just watched friends, or sometimes people who happen to be streaming a game I am interested in. It is only recently that I started watching more streamers outside of that, and started following more than just RL friends.
