The video game that has about 27 million fans worldwide

Video games used to be viewed as small boys’ pastimes but now, it’s growing out of the ‘reasonable’ proportion that industry watchers thought it would. In fact, people powering the industry say that video game industry is about to be as big as the football industry. Did you know that the biggest tournaments are already filling entire arenas, including New York City’s Madison Square Garden?

World’s largest videogame streaming company Twitch promises to be even bigger, with the Amazon purchase. Twitch is the platform for multiple video games.

The average Twitch user spends two hours a day engaging in the site and it’s not unusual for players to stretch up to five hours to enjoy the game.
