    So i am going to be building up a website to promote to the buying audience
    of the gaming world. I was going to be promoting g2a affiliate program
    after reading the quick tutorial posted. Then I thought that I can promote literally
    any gaming affiliate program to make money.

    Went to gamestop's official website and scrolled down to find that they run
    there affiliate program through rakuten linkshare. So my question is which is the
    best gaming affiliate program to market to my potential gaming audience starting out?
    g2a? gamestop? any another one im not aware of?

    Should i stick with g2a or go with another affiliate program?

    Well I am pretty sure that g2a has digital downloads and game keys for their service/site and gamestop actually physically ships items. So it would really depend on your marketing strategy here to find out what the most effective affiliate would be.

    I've tried different affiliate programs over the past few years I've discovered that some pay and some don't. The following prooved to be good:
    1. BMT Micro Affiliates
    2. Google Adsense
    3. JList
    4. TrialPay
    5. Kongregate.com
    6. Big Fish Games Affiliate Program
    These are really specific to my industry because almost all of my indie friends and associates are on it.
