Videogames are a young person’s passtime, except when they’re not. Brian Kibler is a lifelong gamer, from playing to developing to hosting and streaming, and he shows absolutely no signs of stopping. Card games are his discipline and Hearthstone is his current passion, after years of developing and playing other examples of the form. At 37 he is hardly heading for retirement, but he is one of the older high-profile members of any gaming community. But can he keep doing this indefinitely?
Hearthstone's future is Kobolds & Catacombs cards.
“I hope so!” Kibler laughs when we put the question to him at Blizzcon. “I think if stuff like Twitch and YouTube had existed in the form that they do now twenty years ago when I was in school, I would have said 'this is perfect' in terms of the way that it dovetails all the things that I enjoy.”
