YouTube has carried the content creation industry solely on its shoulder for years, but gaming's boom added Twitch to the picture. So which platform is the best for gaming live streaming in 2023?

Gaming's boom didn't happen overnight. Those who jumped to live content creation in gaming in 2011 are enjoying the fruits now. Top gaming streamers from Imane "Pokimane" Anys, Félix "xQc" Lengyel, and Richard "Ninja" Tyler Blevins started their content grind when streaming wasn't considered a real job. But many streaming heavy-lifters have now moved to YouTube, raising the question of whether Twitch is still the best option for gaming content.
