Streaming is popular and many people choose to stream because it can be profitable, as well as fun. Streaming, however, can be difficult to start if you have no idea where to start and with which game. This can be an issue because dedication and a good schedule help propel a stream to success.
Choosing the right game to start your stream with is probably one of the most important steps in becoming a good streamer. Here are the top choices for a rising streaming career.
League of Legends
League of Legends is a MOBA and a very popular one at that. It has a huge audience all over the world and people play it professionally, for prestige, trophies and a lot of money. League streamers are aplenty but there is always room for more.
League has a notoriously toxic community but a streamer can dictate their audience with their behavior. A streamer who is generally positive and tries their best to win while not being mean towards their teammates or chat will most likely have a great audience.
Consider League as a starting point for your streaming career.
Apex Legends is still relatively young in gaming years but it is popular enough that Call of Duty: Warzone players are switching to Apex to try something new and maybe bring more people to the game. Apex is a battle royale, with lots of special Legends (characters), each of who has their own abilities, passive and active.
Apex is great because you can have any sort of audience, from teenagers to people in their late 20s and 30s, which is great for a mature streamer.
Fortnite is a great game to stream if you want to reach a younger audience. It is a cartoonish battle royale which has building elements in itself. It is fun to play, but even more fun to stream.
Fortnite is a popular game with the younger audience and streamers can have success if they have an entertaining personality, something that younger viewers really enjoy.
Call of Duty: Warzone
Another battle royale, but one with a more modern approach. You get photo realism and realistic weapons, with no magic or special circumstances, right? If you die for the first time, you get sent to the Gulag where you duke it out with another player in short rounds. If you win, you get back into the game. Lose and you are one step closer to getting eliminated. Warzone is a fun game, like most battle royales are.
Riot Games’ actual other game (who names a company with a plural without actually not having multiple games for an entire decade?), or rather, one of their other games, is a great shooter to play if you want variety in the form of Counter Strike.
Imagine CS with elements from Overwatch, and you get Valorant, a great game which can be fun to start with.
Grand Theft Auto
GTA is a great online game you could start your stream with. It is fun, interactive and can amuse an audience for days. Try it, and try GTA Role Playing if you want to attempt something new.
These are some of the best games to start your streaming career with. Consider them, or others if these are not to your liking.
