A look into the world of random, and how the complete unpredictability of Twitch chat can be a part of it.

Lacking the time and desire to play video games as much as I used to, I often turn to Twitch — a streaming platform largely focussed on gaming — to satiate the part of me that still finds the hobby enthralling. Watching someone else play games on my behalf is a passive affair, requiring a lot less effort and dedication while still being exposed to some of the story, competition, and atmosphere that gripped me in my formative years.
