Scholars Capstone Spotlight: The Life of Gamers

For his Senior Capstone Research Project, Jakob Neiswonger, a recent graduate of Ridge View's Scholars Academy Magnet for Business and Law, set out to answer the following question: What about Gaming Content on Youtube is so popular that the Youtubers are, if successful, paid millions of dollars? To answer this question, Neiswonger conducted interviews with three individuals, who watch gaming content on Youtube. He found that they all started watching gamers at a younger age, all enjoy the commentary, and that some watch it to play the games vicariously through the youtubers themselves. For more information, you can contact Neiswonger by email at jdarlneis@gmail.com, visit his website by clicking on the image, or follow his twitter handle @YourBrainOnVVGs. Neiswonger plans on attended USC-Columbia this fall.
