This commment I made on another thread should help:

That link should help but here are a few more

Game Boys-explores the insane rivalry between complexity and team 3D during cs 1.6

Raising the Stakes-sick book about esports throughout history

Evo Moment 37- chronicles the history around one of the hypest moments in esports history

This is also a pretty good overview of esports history-

There are also TONS of documentaries for you to sink your teeth into. The King of Chinatown, I got Next, Frag, Free to Play, Sons of Starcraft, [email protected], The King of Kong, Chasing Ghosts, Liquid Rising, Rise of the eSports Hero, Focus, Beyond the Game, The Smash Brothers and many more.

I know a lot about esports history tbh if you need ANYTHING, message me and I will do my best to help you. My knowledge mostly lies in Starcraft, Fighting games, Smash, and some CS, Warcraft 3, Dota, League and Quake. Seriously man, let's make this thing fucking awesome

NewZoo does great research into the esports industry, they have a few free articles and data on their site.

I'd also recommend browsing this thread on esports research. The book "Raising the Stakes" is a bit dense and slightly dated, but thorough.

"The Exeutives" series on YouTube is really invaluable, just slighly dated as well. The series really breaks down the scene circa 2012 and provides a great model of the industry and where it is going.

"Good Luck Have Fun: The Rise of eSports" recently came out. I haven't read it, but would like to.

The OP is too modest to include himself, but apexcp, more commonly known as chobopeon, is one of the premier journalists in SC2. He regularly writes for ESFI and I believe I've seen his articles on other sites. Always well written and you can tell he knows what's going on. He does a great job co-hosting SC Center, a daily SC2 news show with JP McDaniel.

Oh, and he wrote an amazing book, The Starcraft Bible. It contains a full history of Blizzard, RTS's, and the professional Starcraft:Brood War scene, outlining all the great players and personalities in the Starcraft world.

Focused on fighting games but using games across multiple genres for examples, Playing to Win by David Sirlin is a must-read that can improve any player's mentality. It's really powerful stuff, and even some really tough advice to take. I highly recommend it and bought some friends of mine copies.


You can read it online for free!

I just read "Good luck have fun. The rise of eSports." I'm 42 years old, male with two daughters. Thought it was great.

Here's the Amazon link

A major thing that instantly hit me was the recording quality. You sound a little bit 'tinny'. I'm guessing you're using your webcam for that, too?

I'd look into investing in a decent microphone set up. I've been using the Blue Yeti for years now and it's still going strong.

I know that it's something that you're probably aware of, but presentation is always gonna be key. It doesn't matter if you're hosting is perfect if people aren't completely listening to what you're saying because they're too busy thinking about how you sound bad.

Hope it helps!

Getting started is easy. It sounds stupidly simple but it is this one step that separates those that have and those that have not; just start making videos!

In my day job I give a lot of presentations on startups, blogging, and what it takes to be 'successful' and, it is very sad to say, people just don't do things.

Starting out do not worry about your 'voice' or what game you want to cover. Don't worry about what topics to talk about or that one video was about HoN and the next about SC2. the only thing that matters is your schedule. Tell yourself twice a week I am going to put up a video - who cares what it is on or about.

Over time you will find your 'voice'. You will find what you like to cover and what you don't. Seriously, the only advice I can give you is just to start making videos. You are going to have haters, that is the fact of the internet. Period.

Here are some resources I link to in my presensations

Guy Kawasaki's 'Art of Start'

Tim Ferris: Dealing with Haters

Gary Vaynerchuck's 'crush it'

These are just a few things to get you pumped. What you do from here is up to you.

Game Boys is a great book about the CS 1.6 era, mostly focusing on Team 3D and CompLexity, how they had to fight for sponsors, the early esports scene, some background on JLake and Craig Levine, a reflection on the CGS debacle.

I did a quick google search and found this. However, I don't think I am the right person to recommend actual literature. If I could, I'd be a professor :P

Maybe you could ask your school's PE teacher?
