Unlike before when you only had to play the video games at the comfort of your home for your enjoyment, now you can stream videos online and not only get to interact with other game lovers but also get to make some money from it. To help you out, here are tips on how to go about it:Have the necessary suppliesTo make it possible to stream the videos you need to have a number of supplies in place. The first thing that you need to have is a strong internet connection. There is nothing that turns off viewers like audio drops and lousy frame rate. Experts recommend that you ensure that your streaming machine runs directly into your router. It shouldn’t run over WiFi.The second thing that you need is a high-quality microphone to give commentary on the game. The microphone also helps you to chat with people in the community. As rule of thumb, ensure that the microphone is clear and you can hear what other community members are saying.It’s not necessary to have a webcam but to build trust and brand, it’s good that you show your face. People showing their faces have also been reported to receive better reactions. When you show your face, people don’t watch the game for the sake of seeing your skills-they also watch it to have a feel of your personality.The last thing that you need in your supplies is the streaming service. There are many streaming services in the market, but the dominant player is Twitch. If you don’t like it you can go with Hitbox.Set your systemOnce you have the necessary supplies, you are on your way to streaming your favorite game. Before you start playing, set your system. You should check the audio and ensure that it’s properly balanced. You should ensure that your viewers are able to hear you over the in-game sound. Ensure that the sound that the viewers hear is not only yours.You should also set the game resolution and clarity. Ensure that the screen casts clearly on the game that you are playing. Also, ensure that you take a good shot of yourself without obscuring any of the important parts of the game.Play the gameWith everything in place and set, now it’s time to show your skills. You should play the game as normally as you do but you should talk more so that the viewers don’t feel as if they are watching a movie. When speaking, don’t censor yourself too much. At the same time, you shouldn’t pretend to be someone that you aren’t. Conduct yourself the way you do in real life. If you have a camera on, ensure that your face is expressive.ConclusionThese are tips on how to stream your game video. Remember that people can be mean on the streaming services; therefore, maintain your cool even when mean comments are made. With persistence, you will earn your respect and within no time you will be a guru.

5. Final Fantasy 10
This was the first Final Fantasy title to launch on the PlayStation 2. Never before did we have a story-driven RPG with voice acting and stunning graphics. I’m happy that a Final Fantasy title was able to be the first to reach that milestone. Square Enix deserved it.4. Grand Theft Auto 3
Rockstar reinvented the ‘sandbox’ genre with Grand Theft Auto 3, making a completely different game from the previous two Grand Theft Auto games. The most noticeable was obviously the game now being in 3D. The amount of liberating freedom you have in that game is amazing.3. God of War
God of War had excellent presentation and was one of the most polished PlayStation 2 games to ever release. By polish I mean few bugs(which was important considering the PlayStation 2 didn’t make use of ‘patches’ much like PC games do) and smooth gameplay. The sequels were just as good but the original game is what opened the doors for those games. It has unique brain-bending puzzles and a combat system that is terrific, allowing you to do button mash mini games to give a final executing blow to your foes. This one was a favorite of mine.2. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
This was the first Metal Gear game to appear on the PlayStation 2 and it was an instant classic. Hideo Kojima improved a lot of aspects from Metal Gear Solid including the ability to aim in an over-the-shoulder viewpoint behind Snake. Hideo said this was a tough decision because the game would no longer be the traditional Metal Gear Solid birds eye view type of gameplay. It was for the better though.1. Shadow of the Colossus
After it’s success, the devs who made Ico decided to go big. Literally. Shadow of the Colossus features gameplay that no other game could compare with. Fighting giant colossi. The player got a satisfying sense of accomplishment after taking down one of these huge beasts. The variation between the different Colossus was great with each one requiring a different strategy to take it down. They can even be considered as puzzles to be honest. The game has a touching story with an ending that leaves no stones unturned.Conclusion
There you have it. My pick of the top PlayStation 2 games to ever release. The console had a great run and many of my most memorable gaming experiences were with PlayStation 2 games. The PlayStation 2 was also my last console, as I have now moved on to being full time PC gamer.
