I just don't understand the whole "passively watching other people play games" thing. If you don't have the option to play those games because you can't afford them or whatever, okay--I can kind of see that. But it feels like this generation somehow prefers watching others play. Which to me, is the epitome of lame.
If the person is really adapt at the game you can learn skills by watching, so in that sense it can be a sort of tutorial. Other than that it's the personality of the person playing that draws you in, or not. I don't get the donating money to people playing games thing though, most streamers do call outs to people who donate so I guess it's half a second of validation by your new virtual friend.
