Description

OK, don't REALLY quit your job- that would be just plain silly. But you can definitely start profiting from all those hours you spend playing video games. Just think about the many years your parents spent telling you games were a waste of time- well have them watch this clip and prove them wrong!

    your correct. not only does the video on the site not download properly, but once again the download links dont work... well done. only thing missing now is a blue screen of death instead of the video and we are good to go for a whole new dimension in internet errors.

    im not complaining at all. i just like buttons to do what they are supposed to do when i push them instead of something completely different. i try to be helpful and productive too. i dont think it would be much of an help if i would start a homage to microsoft about how much i like windows vista, silverlight, live skydrive, popfly, live spaces, photosynth and so on, because everybody already knows its  great. that you reply to my message shows somebody is reading it and maybe somebody will fix this in the future instead of letting it happen again and again. see between arzteks first comment and mine is 37 minutes. that means somebody had 37 minutes to get it right, but nothing happened. thank you for your comment though, i will try to keep it short and boringly productive in the future.

    I've fixed the download links and the video seems to play for me in the browser now... but I didn't do anything to fix the video for the browser, so let me know if it doesn't work for you...

    Hmmm...the title of this segment is very misleading.  Unless you're a game tester, associate designer, game journalist, or professional tournament gamer, there is no way to make a serious living by just playing games.  There are only a handful of people out there who will pay top dollar for epic items in online games.  It doesn't seem like a steady way to make a living.

    The title was very tongue in cheek, read the description and you can see i dont REALLY suggest quitting your job.

    i have seen reports about teenagers building up and selling their world of warcraft characters for 400-500$ so its not THAT bad either. definitely good pocket money, even when you substract the money spent on the game account and isp. if you do it organized like this guy and sell like one or two characters daily you should be doing pretty well.

    And my mother said I'd never get ANYwhere playing these video games.

    How right she was...
