I was wondering if any other the things you see that say you can make money from playing games well is it actualy possible? I mean it sounds too easy to be true right, So what is the catch?

I think they mean as a job, Enterprise.

It's called "full-time beta testing". It's a scary concept, I know; getting paid to play video games.

I think a full time Beta Tester is the most you can do. It may sound fun, but it really isn't. You're expected to find bugs and mess around with a possibly unstable build.

Unprofessionally, some people sell accounts for MMOs or offer services to raise their levels, and some go to tournaments for the prizes.

But I really don't think it is a good way to live though, there are other jobs out there you should pursue; I don't think "I play video games for a living" is going to bag a good wife or impress anyone. If you really love games, you can enter into some field that involves coding, modeling, script writing, story writer, etc.

You're better off trying a game like Second Life to see if you can make money. If you are good at skinning/modeling/etc. you can make money in the dynamic economy. I've heard of people who make $20,000 a year selling things in the game. :uhm:

There's a thing called "Fragcash" where you can make money from playing Bf2 and CS:Source. You get like (english) 50p per kill but you get charged 75p per death, and i'm pretty sure you have to play on their servers.

If you were one of the best gamers in the world you could make alot of cash playing games like unreal tournament, warcraft 3, and counter strike. But in order to be that calibre of a player, you really have to play for like 6 hours a day and you have to posses alot of initial tallent. If you are really interested you could go to school and become a coder or graphic designer and help to make games for a living.
