Its like 1 ad right when u open a stream. Thats normally the only one. I think the streamer has the choice to show more. The ppl i watch dont.

Edit: Also if you are subscribed you do not have any adds with that person. Plus many other perks depending on streamer you can play with them ect. Like for COD players that sub to immarksman he dedicates 2 days a week where he plays with subs. So i think they do a good job keeping ads to a minimum and providing a good service.

Absolutely LOVE my Amazon Prime! I don't even order that much stuff from them anymore but all the other features and exclusives still makes it worth it, especially if you still order at least a few things a year from them with free shipping.

Watching someone play a game at a higher competitive level than yourself, can help you glean some insight on how to improve your own play.

I feel like this is fairly obvious to anyone who has played a competitive online game.


There are also times where you are tired/burnt out and would like to still do something involving your favorite game.

I never understood why people who weren't familiar with twitch streaming always seem to go directly to the comment "Why would you watch someone play a video game" but its usually the same person who will sit in front of a tv for countless hours a week where almost 50% of the time its nothing but commercials and ADs. The concept is not much different, but I don't agree that it should be directly compared to actual Sports all the time, its just another form of a spectator sport, or spectator eSport rather.

That's a good point for those who are really into gaming and care about improving their competitive play. I personally am not really a gamer and just play casually when I want to have some fun (probably the reason I much prefer SP campaigns to MP). I am subbed to one gaming channel on YT, however (Major Slack Attack), because when I was working through Crysis several years ago I needed a good walkthrough and this guy was not only very good but also effin hilarious. Now that I am working through GTAV I am using his walkthrough again, so I definitely concede you are absolutely right about your comment...

I forgot twitch had ads. Thanks ublock origin.

What I don't understand is how so many streamers stay popular when they're blocking 2/3rds of their screen with their own face / keyboard / watermark / new viewer alert / cat cam, and completely blocking out the game sounds with a thousand sound loop crashes (what they call music). I thought the point of watching someone play a video game was to, idk, watch them play a video game. Am I missing something here?

All these streamers you describe are almost exclusively being fueled by immature teens and sponsorships. Its these streams specifically that I never watch and it follows the same pattern for those awful youtubers who have the most immature fanbase. Theres a small handful of "lets play" or variety streamers that I watch but mainly used Twitch for watching Tournaments and Events.
