Women Taking Gaming By Surprise!
First, I would like to wish everybody a happy National Women's Day! Women equality is something that has been in the works for, what seems like forever, and women continue to succeed. So congratulations to all you successful women out there.
Gaming girls are coming out of the wood work as of recent. Women are streaming games on their personal channels on platforms like Twitch.tv and YouTube Gaming. They are not just a pretty face, but many of these women are GOOD at video games, and while this shouldn't be shocking...it is. Gaming has always been known as a boy activity, at least as far as I can remember. Finding a gaming girl was rare, and when you did, you were stunned!
Women are beginning to be the face of many franchises, from news...to video game characters.
For example, Naomi Kyle from IGN has had an incredibly successful career so far reporting news. On the surface, she may appear to be a pretty girl that is used for attention, but after viewing her YouTube channel and seeing interviews about her, she truly is a gamer and loves the industry! Congratulation Naomi Kyle for such a successful career, and many more years to come.
Next, I can't help but acknowledge women video game characters. Lara Croft, Clementine, Samus Aran, Bayonetta, and many more to say the least! All of these women have been main characters in top grossing franchises, and will continue to do so. This would have never happened before women equality took place. Women are even emerging in hardcore games such as Call of Duty. Who would've thought?
Last but certainly not least, I find this to be the perfect time to announce our new partnership with the YouTube channel Hello Lab Group! This channel is run by a girl named Katharina, and she does Let's Plays of Indie and Horror games (as well as many more). We are privileged to bring her onboard with JoyStik Entertainment. As she will still manager her personal YouTube gaming channel, we are excited to be in partnership with her and her channel!
