Today’s gamer vocabulary word is “Streaming”.
Streaming is a specific type of of Let’s Play. In it, the viewers are watching the player in real-time as opposed to watching something prerecorded. Streaming has taken off over the last few years with the proliferation of high-speed internet connections.
The main site for watching streams right now is Twitch.tv. You can search for a game there and probably find someone playing it. This will not be the case with every game but will be for the big ones. For example, here are the channels streaming Minecraft, Starcraft 2, and Call of Duty Ghosts.
Twitch offers another great opportunity for you to connect with your gamer outside of playing. I have mentioned esports tournaments before. Twitch is one of the places you can watch these tournaments live. Riot Games is actually running a League of Legends tournament this week. This is a great opportunity to connect with your gamer.
