Most of you probably don't know or care (and that's perfectly okay!) that I used to stream a lot of video games.
When I started drawing bonus comics and Otaku Dad, I lost a lot of the free time I used to stream.
A happy alternative, of course, was streaming for just a couple-few hours whenever I felt like it.
Unfortunately, streaming has turned into a frustrating experience, and I have no idea why.
It's no one's fault but my own. My chat is almost entirely friendly and civil, but I get upset and tired easily when playing games. I frequently look at the clock to see how many hours I've been streaming and if I can stop playing yet.
The most egregious sin I commit is getting snippy with my chatters, and I'm just not that guy. I want to be friendly and nice all of the time, but for some reason, that ability becomes lost to me after only short time after going live.
I don't really know why it happens, but I don't want anyone to remember me as angry mean fellow playing the video games. I've tried hard to enjoy streaming again, and for some reason I can't make it work.
I want to thank everyone who made streaming possible. When I started, a donation drive helped me buy a capture unit so that I was able to properly stream Silent Hill 2 and some other console games. These were extremely fun experiences, and I'm blessed to have been able to share them with people.
Thank you for making it a greatly enjoyable time for me. Maybe someday I'll find joy in it again, but until then, I'm not going to force it.
I hope you have a wonderful day.
P.S. This does not affect Patreon reward drawing streams, which I still find to be a fun way to draw while interacting with people.
