2015 was a great year for Twitch streamers. Although the advent of YouTube Gaming threatened to steal the spotlight, Twitch has stayed strong and broken records throughout the year. In addition to celebrating its fourth birthday this year, the site has officially reached over 1.5 million broadcasters, streaming content for more than 100 million viewers.
As 2015 comes to an end, we're taking a look back at the year's biggest streamers, plus a few up-and-comers who have really started to make a name for themselves the last 12 months. Developer channels (like RiotGame) won't be included on this list, and neither will official league or team channels like ESL or MLG.
Now, let's count down this year's top streamers. First we'll list the top general streamers, then we'll highlight the biggest streamers for a few of 2015's most popular games.
