Changing Paradigms of Gaming
As soon as the IPL or ISL starts, we can see several companies promoting Fantasy cricket and football ads on TV screens. Apart from entertainment, companies permit their players to make real money through gaming which is a highly welcome opportunity in these uncertain times. Gamers can also make a full time profession because gaming careers are becoming increasingly main stream worldwide.
Additionally, fantasy gaming often permits multiplayer options that facilitate social relations, engagements and enable people to grow their networks. Social interaction is also strengthened through YouTube and friction channels that gamers often use to communicate with their fellow players and form more deep connections. Due to the pandemic, various factors from unhindered technological advancements and increased internet penetration have come into play to spell this drastic growth. In the lack of mainstream entertainment sources and free movement due to COVID and its consequent restrictions, most people switched to online gaming to deal with their boredom.
Increasing interest in virtual entertainment among friends, family, and peer groups and the growth of influencers is encouraging Indians to play more games. Nowadays, well aware investors are also looking for niche investment opportunities in the markets.
