What once used to be merely a pastime for many, is now one of the most watched genres of content on the internet - gaming! The popularity of gaming channels has shot up immensely in India over a very short period of time, especially among the youngsters. People love watching their favourite gamers play popular gaming titles on hour-long streams or just regular YouTube videos, while being entertained throughout. 

This diverse form of content has amassed a dedicated fan base and has given rise to a community, which until a few years ago, seemed non-existent.
