Millions of people all over the world are logging in to watch really skilled gamers play video games. In fact, Tyler Blevins, Ninja as they call him, raised $2.7 million for St. Jude Children's Hospital during a live stream at Guardiancon, a multi-day event for online gamers that includes panels, gaming exhibitions and charity livestreams.
