Why I Love Twitch

Rachel Mii Double JumpHappy Tuesday!

There has been so much hype the past couple of days thanks to E3. However, thanks to my day job, I haven’t been able to watch it live.

I was introduced to Twitch about a year or two ago. I’m sure you all know that it’s a live streaming site and app for video games. Other things, too, but mostly video games.

I tend to put Twitch on my iPad, prop it up on its stand, and watch/listen to some of my favorite YouTubers while getting some work done.

I also tend to end the night watching Twitch in bed right before going to sleep.

Twitch is a cool community and I love that I can watch others, mainly the YouTubers I follow, play through full games instead of watching bits and pieces of it here and there on YouTube.

I mean, don’t get me wrong – I love YouTube as much as Twitch. But it’s fun to binge watch someone play a game in its entirety.

Twitch has been streaming E3, of course. Since I’m still working at my day job for another week, I haven’t been able to watch E3 live. As much as I would love to watch it live and tweet along with everyone else watching it live, I haven’t minded watching it a day later than everyone else.

I’m happy that I’m able to watch it at all, thanks to Twitch. Plus, a bunch of the YouTubers I watch live streamed it as well. So I’ve been watching their commentary on it.

E3 is never something I really watched before until now. I always just heard through the grapevine (meaning the Internet) about up and coming games and how awesome E3 was. I’m happy I can be part of the action now, even if it is later than everyone else.

I’ve only watched EA, Microsoft, and Ubisoft so far. I haven’t gotten to Sony or Bethesda yet. And I, of course, can’t wait for Nintendo to come on.

Come on, Nintendo… Give me Animal Crossing and more Luigi’s Mansion!

  1. If Nintendo give me a Luigi’s Mansion game on the Switch, they’ll win E3 for me.

    As for Twitch, me and my GF have never really been bothered about watching people play games, but since Player Unknowns Battleground’s has become so successful, we usually watch 30-40 minutes of that daily.

    • I’ve been wanting a new Luigi’s Mansion game for a while!
      PUBG is a great game. I haven’t played it myself, but I’ve watched others play it, especially people on a team, and it looks awesome.

  2. I’ve been getting spotty quality from Twitch this year for E3 streams and I’ve had to use YouTube for Ubi and Sony. But I’m glad there is a video service devoted to games.
