Twitch star Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek is one of the most popular gamers in the world, and now the streamer has revealed his top three favorite games of all-time during his October 3 broadcast.

Shroud has become one of the biggest streamers on Twitch, thanks to his incredible skill at seemingly any game he picks up, with thousands flocking to his channel to watch him pull off incredible plays, and for a few hilarious moments too.

The Canadian doesn’t focus on any one game specifically, unlike some Twitch personalities who stay on one title permanently, so figuring out which games are his favorite can be tricky, but finally, the 25-year-old has given fans a breakdown of his top three.

Respawn EntertainmentShroud plays a variety of games on stream, but revealed his top three.

When asked by a member of his audience for his top three games of all time, the streamer immediately responded with Counter-Strike, which will likely come as little surprise. Shroud is a former CS:GO pro player, and spent years grinding Valve’s first-person shooter, winning thousands of dollars competing on the world’s biggest stages.

Next up was World of Warcraft, another option that won’t shock viewers of his streams as he’s been grinding his way through WoW Classic since its release in August. At one point, his addiction to the game was so strong that he was enlisting his girlfriend to help him avoid queue times, and even claimed he wanted to stream WoW full-time, and ditch other games entirely.

    Of course, while those may be shroud’s three favorite games, it doesn’t stop him from hopping on other popular titles, with the streamer currently playing Fortnite, GTA Online, and Escape from Tarkov in the past.

    No matter what the 25-year-old is playing though, you are almost always guaranteed to see some high-level gameplay any time you turn on his Twitch stream.

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has revealed her plans for her Twitch VODs, after many creators on the platform, including some of the very biggest, were hit with DMCA takedown notifications over content in their back-catalog.

On October 21, some of the most popular names on the platform revealed that they have been getting these DMCA notifications, with people such as Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar, and more finding that clips and VODs from past broadcasts have been deleted.

Obviously, in recent months there have been issues with streamers using copyrighted music on their stream, with many opting to stop so as to avoid any legal issues, but now their past content is being sifted through and checked, and the results are wiping out some of these creators’ favorite moments on stream.

While many streamers are doing all they can to keep their content on their Twitch channel available, Pokimane has revealed her plans for past VODs.

Pokimane has been streaming full-time since 2017, but may have to remove a lot of her content to avoid DMCA takedown requests.

After a viewer told Poki that fellow streamer Saqib ‘Lirik’ Zahid was to delete all of his VODs he’s built up over the years, she suggested that the same might be the case for her own channel.

“Lirik’s going to delete all his VODs? Well, guess what, it’s not just Lirik,” she told her viewers during her October 22 stream.

She continued: “Today, tomorrow, at some point, you guys are going to come across my channel and there’s going to be zero content. Sucks to say, but it is what it is.”

Of course, there will be many top streamers considering that reality right now: that the content they’ve put out over however many years could simply be erased due to the music being played in the background.

Some content creators have already started taking down old VODs and deleting clips, and Pokimane may be just one of many that do so to avoid being banned from the platform altogether. We might see some creators start transferring their content to YouTube, but this would likely require a Herculean effort, too.

At the time of writing, Pokimane’s VODs haven’t been wiped from her channel.
