    Streaming has become very popular nowadays. Many gamers now livestream their games on Twitch.tv. Even YouTube has begun to provide some kind of streaming capability. It has become quite a good way for gamers to make some money from donations instead of participating in tournaments. At the same time, many tournaments also earn some revenue from livestreaming. So I wonder whether anyone here watches livestreams and how often? Do you watch them for the personality of the streamer or for the game?

    I do, but very, very rarely, and not on non-hype games. I mean, if a game's being released and I don't have the necessary money of acquiring it in the near future, I watch streams or a walkthrough on Twitch to have an idea of how it is. I personally don't mind the spoilers, unlike others. Whether I see someone else playing the game or it's me who does it personally, it doesn't have any effect on me.
