Highlights

  • Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with top Indian gamers like 8Bit_Thug, Mortal, PayalGaming, and others.

  • This follows the PM hosting the National Creators Award 2024 for gaming content creators.

  • The meeting covered topics like esports, the difference between gaming and gambling, and women in gaming.


Recently, Honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi had a gaming interaction with top Indian gamers like 8Bit_Thug, Mortal, PayalGaming, SKRossi, GamerFleet, MythPat, and Tirth Mehta. They discussed the new developments in the Gaming industry and how the Modi government has recognized gamers' creativity in promoting the Gaming industry in India. 

 

This is a major paradigm shift with regards to how gaming is perceived in the mainstream in India. Compared to only 3-4 years ago, gaming was still a niche subculture. In the past few years, the games and content creation industry has grown by leaps and bounds and the Government considers it one of the most valuable and fastest growing industries in the country.

A few weeks ago, various stakeholders from S8UL were teasing a collaboration that would shake up the entire industry.

We have seen multiple efforts in the past to spotlight the gaming industry and content creators. Recently, the PM hosted the National Creators Award 2024, which featured various content creators and influencers in the Indian gaming community.

 

From the teaser of this meeting posted on the YouTube channel of Honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi, we could gather much more context about the meeting. Talking about meeting Narendra Modi for the first time, Mortal from S8UL stated the following:

 

That moment, when he entered the room, my heartbeat stopped. It stopped me in my tracks.


Payal Gaming had this to say when asked about her meeting our Honorable PM:

 

When we met him for the first time, it didn’t feel like one moment that we were talking to our Prime Minister. Meeting him one on 1, I just couldn’t believe we had such a high age difference. It felt like he was of our age.

 


Within the teaser, we could see clips of 8 Bit Thug talking about the current gaming industry and the growth of esports in India. The discussion revolved around the relationship between gaming and gambling and the current involvement of women in the gaming industry. There are moments when one can see the Prime Minister play various video games on mobile, such as Fall Guys, and on an AR headset. The interactions between the Prime Minister and the stakeholders in the gaming community will bring hope to many that improvements will be seen in various aspects of the Esports and Indian gaming industry.
