With the coronavirus pandemic keeping many in self-isolation, gamers are taking the opportunity to encourage one another to stay inside and enjoy what the video game industry has to offer. A growing number of streamers and esports personalities have gotten #GamersVsCOVID19 trending, but gamers across social media have also embraced the movement, pushing others to stay in and play video games, rather than going out. With so many people currently failing to follow the recommendations of the CDC and the government, it's great to see so many others rallying around the cause and finding a way to keep busy during the time inside.
