In a YouTube video titled why i took a break + what's next for me, Pokimane said that she had lost interest in playing games on-stream. She added:

"Nowadays, when I see things on Twitch... it kind of feels like, 'Been there, done that.' Like, I'm not really, really excited or passionate about much, aside from like generally chatting, (and) connecting with people. IRL streaming is always fun and there will always be games that capture my heart, here and there."
