Written by TrevStone

There is no doubt the best video game streamers are born in Michigan. It’s weird, it must be something in the air. I’m a Michigander, not a streamer but enjoy watching streamers… Recently it hit me was that majority of the big named streamers are from Michigan!

I know there are more than 8 streamers from Michigan that could have possibly have been listed but I figured I’d leave it at 8 and allow everyone to comment who else should be added. Let’s get this started.

8. Covent

Chris Covent is the first Michigander on the list.

Honestly… if this list was my favorite streamers list Covent would be at the top of this list! His range of gaming throughout the last year includes all the major games but his comedy and ability to perform along with being able talk to his chat while playing is very impressive.

His community is a very tight community which is very respectful.
