Gaming in China: Players Share Their Experiences

China has one of the world's fastest-growing economies, and already represents a third of global gaming revenue. That said, it remains a tough industry, and the culture is difficult for many Western players to understand.

We spoke to some fans at the 2018 ChinaJoy conference to get their perspective on gaming, from pro players who dedicate countless hours to practice and competition to dedicated amateur gamers who frequent internet cafes. Check out the video below to hear their stories:
