I loathe streaming, it's such a s***ty excuse for entertainment.
And I don't think I'd enjoy my job or be any good at it when I think all my customers are f***ing morons.

I don't like any games that are popularly played at a professional level either. I could very well have made the only tournament this one game I did like had, except you had to be 18 to participate and I wasn't at the time.

Nope,

I absolutely hate the crowd that follows people playing games and I wouldn’t want to rely on their McJobs to pay my wage.

No. It looks stressful and a pain in the ass. I already have gray hairs on my head and I'm only 31. I'm currently back in school to earn my HS diploma. Entertaining and trying to maintain a following is going to add more. Plus, I'm not a pro or a rager.
