They didnt need to spend anything on him. The game is a big hit for many.

Hard to know how much of an impact him and other streamers had. The game just launched out of the blue with no advertising. Streaming was basically the only way you could find out what it was on day-1.

Not going to defend paying that much for so little, but streaming was a big deal for this on day-1. I'd also imagine that lots of smaller streamers would see what Ninja is doing and move to that game to try and catch the next popular thing.

As if the "kid" needs a bigger ego, watch 2 of his streams he spends more time moaning and reporting people who kill him. Because "He's gods gift and unbeatable".

I dont know how watching others play games is fun or interesting unless its an analytical review of it.

I guess I am the old guy now :S

Does he meet the criteria?

1. Daily drives an exotic car, usually a Lambo
2. Has over 1m subs
3. Is a complete belmet.

Not gonna judge him in that way. He could be the most loyal and cool friend/person anyone could have around and a general nice guy. I just have a hard time seeing how its fun to watch someone play games.

Little kids will watch literally anything, my little sisters (7-9 yo) will watch all sorts of random mundane stuff like toy unboxings for those little random packs you get. Maybe one day they'll move on to something interesting like GPUs...

I think the only trick to being a YouTuber for that audience is to be insanely enthusiastic about everything to a painful degree. Not trying to attack Linus there lol.
