He mostly plays competitive multiplayer games like Fortnite, COD Warzone, PUBG. He was playing these on PS4 before, but now that he'll have a good enough gpu he plans on sticking mostly to pc so he can use mouse and keyboard. He's 14 and a freshman in high school. He's trying to start an e-sports team at the school.
