⌛How To Survive a Decade in the Gamer Game


When you’re a streamer, having a long-lasting career is a big question mark. The creator “economy” and gaming industry are too new for us to know what it really takes to keep creating for 20, 30, or 40 years.

We focused on the careers of creators like BoxBox, The Completionist, Ninja, Jacksepticeye, DrDisRespect, and others that have been around for longer than 10 years—a lifetime in internet years.
