During the circuit breaker period, we saw how popular gaming was as a form of entertainment. I’m sure everyone remembered how popular Nintendo Switch was – it was sold out globally and prices were jacked up by scalpers.
Fortunately, I was able to get my hands on the help elusive Nintendo Switch and Animal Crossing from overseas sites (and for cheaper too 😜). I’m not sure about you, but the Nintendo Switch was a lifesaver for my family – we’ve spent countless hours trying to get past levels on Overcooked 2.
Even now, many Singaporeans are opting to pass time with video and online games at home, while social distancing measures are still in place. It’s also no surprise that YouTroopers have been spending a lot on games and gaming accessories, and YouTrip noted 260% increase in these spending categories compared to the same period last year (January to September). That’s a lot of gaming equipment we’re buying online!
Ready, Set, Game!
Have you ever had a conversation with a friend who shared the same interest as you, and quite literally never ran out of things to talk about? That’s what our YouTrip gaming community is all about – to connect you with fellow gamers in the community.
Most gamers will be familiar with Discord, an instant messaging platform for the gaming community. Think of an informal version of Microsoft Teams or Slack. YouTrip Gaming is hosted here as well, and you can join the various discussion groups based on the type of games you’re interested in and even initiate gaming sessions with other gamers.
Since launch, ours members have spent 3,620 minutes on Valorant and 2,735 minutes on Dota 2. Quick maff – that’s a full 2.5 days worth of gaming. 😵
Come join us on YouTrip Gaming to connect with like-minded gamers to chat about your favourite games, tactics, and even the best gaming equipment!
