If you're someone who has no idea why people watch people play video games on Twitch, you need to watch this video. Dr. DisRespect, who's one of the service's biggest personalities, recently won an industry award in eSports and his speech is funny and heartwarming. In it, he talks about the struggles people go through and how he had no idea he could help someones life by just playing games and being entertaining. For what it's worth, he is pretty damn entertaining, so I wouldn't be surprised if he's helped people get through some rough times.
Check out his speech below, and hop down below that for some interesting highlights of his past streams on Twitch.
