As people around the world quarantined, limited physical contact, and generally stayed at home more, many people looked for digital entertainment options at home and found their escape in gaming.
Through gaming, you can be a magician, a soldier, or even lord of a kingdom, all without leaving home. Video games are uniquely interactive, allowing for collaboration and competition with friends, family, and strangers on the other side of the world. Video games are no longer considered a concept for children. Games have always been popular and have, but since 2020, their popularity has grown significantly, attracting new users and audiences.
Streamers are the new influencers in the digital industry. They are drawing huge numbers of viewers to watch sessions and generating significant amounts of money, turning Streaming into a stable job someone can live on.
The gaming market is diverse. It includes an individual playing a single player game by themselves, a group of friends collaborating in a massive multiplayer online game, and professionals duking it out for prize money in an international tournament.
These professionals are a significant factor in the growth of the industry through the increased popularity of Esports. Teams that compete in Esports behave like a professional sports team, building a team around a winning strategy and attracting fans. The players on these teams are treated like professional athletes, they have a base salary, employment insurance if they have an incident and loans, just like any job.
