How to Earn Money By Playing Video Games
Everyone loves playing video games at one point in their life, and some still do even when they’re already full-grown adults. Playing video games could be a great way to relieve stress and unwind, and it could actually have a lot of positive effects. When we were all kids, our parents would get angry at us saying that it is a complete waste of time and we should focus on things that could be of use when we get older. But what if we told you that you could now become rich playing video games and you could rub it in your parents’ face? “Look at me now mom and dad. You told me playing games was a waste of time, right?” Well, here are 4 ways in order to make money from playing video games.
Getting paid to play new games. It sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it actually kind of is. A lot of game companies have openings for game testers, but the job is not all it’s cracked up to be. You don’t actually earn that much money from testing games, and most of the time you can’t even play games that you are actually interested in. You also have to play the game over and over again in order to find bugs and glitches, and that means you have to play a specific part of a game over and over until they’re satisfied. So, game testing gets boring, but hey, at least you’re earning money for playing games, right?
It’s weird how watching other people play games has become almost as popular as playing video games yourself. Websites such as Twitch.tv where you upload your gameplay and where you can watch other people play has become popular. It is actually a great way to make a lot of money, because if your videos get a lot of views then you can earn advertisement royalties. Famous video game streamers need to be really entertaining and has to commentate on the video throughout the entire playtime in order to be able to earn advertisement earnings. You either have to really good at the game or have to be really funny and entertaining. Well, if you could earn a lot of cash, then it’s alright to make a fool out of yourself on the internet.
Sell Your Video Game Account / Character
In Massively Multiplayer Online games or MMO’s , creating and leveling up your character is one of the most important part of the game. Grinding to level up your character/s will take a lot of time and effort and of course skill. Not a lot of people are able to build high-level, top-class characters, but rich people could buy them. If you’re a top level player, and maybe you’ve gone bored of the game or have no more time to play and need money then selling your account and characters is an easy way to earn some quick cash. A lot of games discourage and even don’t allow stuff like selling accounts and characters, but it is still pretty easy to do, and is an easy way to earn some money.
Joining eSports Tournaments
If you dream to become rich by playing video games then playing competitively is the way to go. You can become insanely rich while becoming famous in the gaming community. eSports have become so popular that they are able to offer massive prize pools for competitive tournaments. The International is the annual Dota 2 world tournament, and it is known to offer the highest prize pool in history. The prize pool of the 2015 International was over $18 million, which was the highest prize pool for a single tournament in eSports history, but was beaten the next year by the 2016 International with a prize pool of over $20 million. Being a top-class competitive gamer needs a lot of skill and dedication, but it is a great way to become rich and famous in the gaming community. If you’re interested in competitive gaming then Dota 2 and League of Legends are one of the most popular games out there.
