    First of all your traffic with game niche is very low, you can try to promote cpa offers with pay per install payments, there is plenty of online games offers like:war thunder, war frame, prime world, dark age etc, you can make a post regarding this games, talks about it is cheat's and secrets, with your affiliate download links + banners, they do pay 1-2$ for registration and quite more for active player. If you have some decent shares you can use content locker on them, if you can not code custom one (recommended), you can go with any cpa network you like. Mostly gamer's are kids and teens, so they hardly buy something. There is games which many adults play like startcraft 2, wow, lineage, diablo 3, heroes etc.

    CPA/PPD goes best with game blog. Choose the related and close game to your blog, Place your link for free game download. You can easily get downloads, if your traffic is targeted.

    I will not say that your traffic is low because even with that you are supposed to have made a sale. Maybe you should check on what your blogs are about, are they really what people want? are they on the games that are mostly played. You should have first hand experience in those games and identify with them then you will know what people want. any challenges in the games you can write about them, how to successful pass a certain difficult point and many secrets behind the game. I have seen people looking for cheats and many more. you can actually earn from that.But you must also ensure that you have good quality traffic ti have a significant conversion.all the best

    First of all try to get more traffic, atleast 50k a month then start game reviews for ios and indie games, game reviews also attract alot of people, if your english is good upload videos of game reviews and do something different with it maybe make it funny or something i mean the review but it should still have alot of value, put your site intro at the start of the review video, each month you will gain tens of thousands of visitors just because of those videos.

    You will earn from those videos

    Second you can earn by reviewing indie games and ios and android games once you have enough traffic people will come to you themselves, just dont tell people you do paid reviews just tell them there is a fees to review and there will be a point where you will be reviewing 2-3 games a day at $100 a pop which would net you a good amount :)

    If you want, we can collab and take this further in the future :)

    If you want anymore ideas i can give em out to you even if you dont want a collab.


    EDIT:: Recently i was searching for a few game reviews on youtube and nobody did them, some old ps2 games and such i can tell you these if i am searching for them i am sure others are too and slowly when you have a few dozen reviews you can expect to get 10 to 15 thousand visitors just from them :)
