Something about watching the worlds best gamers play the most difficult levels without breaking a sweat relaxes me, so much so that I have been watching more twitch and YouTube than TV lately.
My love of video games, like most people's, goes back to when I was a kid. Action games like Call of Duty and Halo got me started but as I got older and my career grew I found less time for them. In 2014 as I had some severe health issues I started spending more time at home with the support system of an online community in Destiny on an XBox I originally got to play with my little brother who lives 5 hours away.
Streaming allows me to practice my green screen and OBS skills and gives me an excuse to play the games I love. It's still creating content even if nobody's watching right?
