Fortnite is by far the most streamed game around at the moment. It averages 7,860 live channels on Twitch alone, racking up over 84,843,766 viewer hours. YouTube is full of Fortnite gamers looking to capitalise on the game's success by playing it in front of the camera and being quirky. It's mega profitable if you can attract enough viewers. Just look at PewDiePie, who has almost 100m followers and earns over $20 million for just sitting at home and chatting rubbish for an hour a day.

Fortnite has become a sensation since it came out in 2017, emptying millions of parent's wallets along the way. One poor (literally) dad lad found that his kid had built up a £1,600 bill on his PlayStation account by purchasing skins and Sony had no intention of refunding the transactions. They told him: "The transactions in question were made on a console with a different serial number from the one provided by you, but our investigations do not indicate that the account has been compromised as a result of internet fraud.
"The transactions are not eligible for a refund under the criteria outlined in the PlayStation Store cancellation policy and therefore we cannot offer a refund in this case
"We do require the SEN account holder to be responsible for all activity on their account."
Fortnite isn't going away anytime soon, so why not buy a camera and mic and film yourself playing? You might end up joining our updated list next year.
