Video games are a fun hobby – particularly those of the online multiplayer variety. If the number of League of Legends accounts currently active is any indication, they’re quite the popular pastime among many people from various walks of life. However, they can be so much more than just a hobby. Did you know that you can actually make money by playing online multiplayer games? Here are some tips on how to make that happen.
Most of us think of playing games when it comes to getting entertainment from them. But it turns out that there are actually plenty of people out there that will tune in to watch someone play a game online. All you have to do is set up a twitch account and you’re good to go. After that, you just need to keep winning people over with your charisma, so that they’ll continue to support you through donations.
If you like to digest your games in a more thoughtful, in-depth way than just playing them, gaming journalism may be your thing. In-between your play sessions, you can sit down to write reviews, think pieces, and updates on the latest content in the hottest MMOs. The possibilities are near-limitless.
If you’re good enough at a game to be able to compete with others, you might want to attempt just that. Many online, as well as local multiplayer games, have spawned their own tournament circles – try your hand against others and the grand money prize may just be yours.
