Game streaming is seeing a surge in viewership—either on Twitch, Facebook Gaming, and YouTube Gaming—during the pandemic.

With the closure of computer shops following the community quarantine protocols that started in 2020, Filipinos have turned to game streaming as a form of entertainment.

To those unfamiliar with game streaming, it is defined by Wikipedia as "an activity where people record themselves playing games to a live audience online."

For example, showbiz celebrities like Nash Aguas, Alden Richards, and McCoy de Leon, among others, have been interacting with their fans via online games they play together.

The growth of the game streaming community has spawned social-media stars who have become popiular not just for their gaming content creations but also for their winning smiles.

Here are some of them you may want to follow.

Oscar Romero, better known as "Sumpak Wangdu" went viral last year not just for his skills but also for his good looks.
