What can viewers expect when they tune in to Kardplays on YouTube Gaming?
Lots of laughs! I am in no way a professional gamer, In fact, it's probably the complete opposite! I'm always laughing at myself for doing silly things. You can also expect a warm, friendly stream. One where you will be greeted and made to feel like apart of the family.
How did you get into streaming? Are there any other streamers that inspire you?
I've wanted to stream for a while now. I used to watch some overseas friends stream and wished I could do it to, it looked like alot of fun to me. It wasnt until recently that my rental house lease expired, I found a house that had NBN available so I could stream myself. All streamers inspire me- the great and the not so great. Great streamers inspire me to be better, and not so great streamers show me exactly what not to do.
What do you enjoy most about streaming?
Interacting with viewers and relating to them on a personal level. I really enjoy when new viewers return to streams and become regulars.
What tips would you give to aspiring streamers?
Don't be affraid and don't give up. Know that there will be times where you will mess up, you will have times where things won't work, and there will be haters and trolls trying to upset you. It's up to you to decide if you let those things get to you and how badly you want to stream.
What is your favourite game of all time?
That's a tough question! I couldn't just name one game. I've really enjoyed the counter strike games, I've been playing them on and off for many years now- I always find myself coming back to them. I also have a huge soft spot for doom and Jazz Jackrabbit for nostalgia reasons.
What games are you most looking forward to?
The biggest game I was most looking forward to in 2016 was DOOM. Blood, gore, demons and chainsaws! What more could you want?! I'm also really interested in Battlefield 1. I'm really looking forward to a decent historical themed FPS game.
