In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

It's not just gamers. Lots of people support this, because it's a funding the Prevent Cancer Foundation. Seriously, I'm a little disappointed nobody at GR wrote an article to aware people of this event.

all these nerds have Carrot Top Syndrome. That freckly red-head kid spends about as much time in the gym as he does playing Mega Man X, apparently.

I think the races are my favorite. You can tell when one person just kind of gives up because they screwed up too many times.

Haha, I think the same. Reminds me of my uni years when I'd game hours on end without a care in the world. Now I have to think about adult stuff Sad

Too be honest, some of these runners get paid for monetizing their stuff on Twitch. That kinda makes me jelly.

There are parts that are definitely totally unwatchable. The guys doing Donkey Kong Country speedruns last night were horrible. Forget what game it was the other night but everyone seemed a little drunk or high. Then there are parts where they have a clear idea of what glitches they wanna show, they start a race under the guise of beating the other player, and then spend the 20 minutes they don't need because they over estimated breaking the game as horrifyingly as possible.

Welcome to the death of television, folks. This is the future of watching anything, especially if someone were to start "Let's Watch" where you stream commentary to TV shows and movies.

I can't be the only one who thinks glitches shouldn't count in speed runs am I?

I agree. Though as far as I know, there's exploit speed runs and no exploit speed runs.

The latter are much more exciting.

How much can they possibly make doing this? Enough to sustain themselves outside of .. wait for it.. mommy's basement?

They can't possible generate a living doing this? Give me some examples?

No way they would make much, unless they're one of the MAJOR Youtubers or a highly competitive StarCraft player.

Thats the hidden card though that no one wants to share - from what I've seen they couldn't possibly make more than 15k a year unless they are a starcraft player.. a WINNING starcraft player. What about the majority of Twitchers? What are they making? What are the outliers on both ends and what are the avgs?
