Tags to Filter by What Console is Being Played
Consoles we are playing should have their own tags. It would help people who enjoy certain consoles to find content they love. This can apply to current generation games and retro. Since Retro is a category that is healthy and growing with lots of talented and incredible broadcasters, it would be cool to have tags based on the system we are playing to help discoverability. Since streaming in each game tends to make the experience more fragmented, people tend to stream under the general Retro category. When streaming under retro using a tag for the system you are playing could be helpful. Example tags could be;
NES, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Virtual Boy, Gamecube, Wii, Sega Master System, Sega Genesis, Sega 32X, Sega Saturn, Sega Dreamcast, GameBoy, Amiga, DOS, Atari, Commodore 64, Original Xbox, Playstation, Playstation 2, Playstation Portable, etc.
This is by no means an exhaustive list of console tags that could be made, but I wanted to at least get the idea going to see what people think. The idea would be every console should have its own tag.
Hello everyone! Just wanted to give you all an update that the following tags are now live:
NES, SNES, N64, Virtual Boy, GameCube, Wii, Sega Master System, Genesis, 32X, Saturn, Game Gear, Dreamcast, GameBoy, Amiga, DOS, Atari, Commodore 64, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, PS2, PS3, PS4, PS5, PSP, N-Gage, DS, DSi, and 3DS
Thank you all for your feedback and please let us know if you have any other tag suggestions. Enjoy the streams!
I've been hoping for this for 6 years, I would browse these tags to find streams
This would help with exposure, which is the most important thing for any broadcaster. Streaming in the retro category, I get plenty of followers based on which console I'm playing instead of the game. It makes it easier to get discovered based on the console you're playing instead of the game.
Plenty of people only follow Nintendo Streamers or Sega Streamers. Make it easier for them to find their people!
