Gaming is a lucrative business, not only for the creators themselves, but also for those who play professionally or in front of a global audience through Youtube and Twitch. There is no doubt that the target audiences of video games are male, so there's a massive market share you can own pandering to their gaze. Even E-Sports are employing these techniques to expand viewership. According to one of China's most popular websites, 163.com, E-Sports hostesses are in extremely high demand, with Han Yi-ying signing a contract several years ago worth more than $2 million USD.
However, contrary to the belief that gaming is a male-dominated pursuit, there are many legitimate gamers gals who can cobber their competition and look great doing it.
