If you’re a gamer then you should know about Twitch, a live streaming platform launched back in 2011. Now, with more than a million users, it’s where 3.8 million fun broadcasters share their activities in subjects like food or music.
Twitch is taking the world by storm because users get to watch games played in real-time — these can last anywhere from a minute to eight hours and beyond. This “Big Brother” methodology has been welcomed around the globe with open arms — Black Mirror vibes much?
Before we take a look at the best games to stream on Twitch this year, let’s take a look at why games in the first place. Since launching, Twitch has partnered with gaming companies like Blizzard Entertainment and Overwatch League to host global gaming and esports events that are exclusive to the platform.
When users watch your stream, they get to see what you’re doing on your monitor and also see and hear how you play in dual-screen mode. Another cool aspect is that if someone purchases a game through your links in the streams, you receive sales commissions.
As a student, it’s hard to pass on this fun way of making some side money. Since it’s a live stream, you can also look at comments from viewers and decide if you want to do whatever they suggest. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the best games to stream on Twitch for the rest of this year.
Grand Theft Auto V
With 573,000 viewers and 45.3 million followers, this open-world type game has been well-loved since the early 2000s and is currently the most viewed making it number one on the list of best games to stream on Twitch. Also, Grand Theft Auto is known for its catchy tunes and edgy vibes.
League of Legends
A quite fast-paced game, you should try it out if you’re a competitive person. Here, you’ll have the chance to show your skills as an individual or a team player. The trick is to advance rank by rank and with followers of up to 30.3 million, you can see why this is one of the best games to stream on Twitch.
This one’s a winner (and also more child-friendly.) As a player, you get to explore, interact and modify things made up of blocks. Unlike the first two games that depend more on energy, this one is all about showcasing your unique creativity. Make your own world and expect up to 66,000 viewers.
