The popularity of gaming

Sometime in 2019, Reed Hastings, the Netflix CEO, mentioned what he thought was the company's stiffest competition, and no one imagined it was going to be the video game Fortnite. The assumption was that cable television or movie theaters would feature somewhere. Do you think that instead of reaching for a TV remote, more people are now going for a game controller?

That's interesting news to hear. Gaming has become more affordable since they started up with some subscription models, much like Netflix and Spotify. Perhaps that and the pandemic are the driving forces here.

The pandemic has probably gotten more people to explore more options, and unlike in the past, you're likely to come across a gaming controller in most living rooms. It is a trend that will continue to grow in leaps and bounds.

Yes, the pandemic has made people more aware and curious when it comes to discovering new things to do. I think the popularity of gaming will continue soaring with the subscription models making it affordable.

I think that there are a lot more people who were watching TV regularly who transitioned to gaming or web surfing (including streaming), than the opposite. But it's still always fun to sit in the lounge comfortably with the family or friends.
