We have several types of gaming content creators using all sorts of Steem products, some are decently rewarded, some are constantly struggling, some are getting their votes for something not worth anything.
Overall gaming tags are rewarded way less than some other tags. You know, same old Steem mess, only this time it is revolving around gaming. There are some gaming content creators capable of writing awesome in depth posts and reviews, those are true writers who love what they do and I feel they are not receiving the love that they deserve.
The process that needs to be completed in order to write gaming reviews, previews, retrospectives, require gaming content creators to actually play those games, to analyze all the good and bad things, to take screenshots, to spend money on games.
It is a process that requires way more work than your standard basic posts. Understanding this is the key for better appreciation of gaming posts on Steem. Sure some streams are bad quality, and you actually need to watch them, but to ignore nicely written reviews, just don't do that.
I've seen a lot of popular steemians saying that they are not interested in gaming curation, I'm not gonna name anyone, you know who you are if you're reading this post, but you're probably not because it is a gaming post.
First I got to tell you, ignoring gaming content is plain ignorant. You don't want to ignore gaming content if you want Steem to increase in value for one simple reason that many people still don't seem to grasp.
Gaming is one of the most profitable industries on this planet. I hate to be the one who needs to explain this fact over and over again to everyone non stop, frankly it is getting very tiring to fight this and I've been fighting it my whole adult life.
To ignore gaming and not recognizing it's value in 2019. and what it can do for Steem is crazy. Don't you know that a game (Splinterlands) is the best product on this blockchain. Stop ignoring gaming content and start curating!
