Over the last few years there has been a huge shift in the entertainment industry. The gaming industry has seen significant growth and has become the most popular and profitable forms of entertainment.
In the last year, the gaming industry was estimated to have produced $116 billion, over $10 billion more than TV or TV streaming services. The gaming industry has seen a 10.7 percent growth in the last year and has no signs of stopping.
The diverse industry for gaming provides users with various ways of consumption, whether you’re a hardcore gamer or a mobile user. Gaming has become normalized and readily available for use in everyday life. Nowadays everyone has a mobile device and access to various games allowing them to play games whenever they want.
One of the most significant changes to the gaming universe is the shift of it being an antisocial and individual experience to being an interactive experience. There is now a large participant aspect associated with video games whether it is watching YouTube videos or attending e-sport events.
E-sporting events are now just as popular as regular sporting events. Many schools and organizations have even created e-sport teams in order to get more involved. Furthermore, videos of people playing video games on YouTube are some of the most popular videos to watch online. YouTube influencers like PewDiePie have over 102M subscribers and average 5M views on gaming related videos.
