    did you mean making money as a video game player or creating games? if it is as a player, you can build profiles of characters in a game, their skills and then sell them, i Have seen people do that. also if you are a pro in certain games you can be paid to test the games such as FIFA, you can also gamble by playing the video games. thanks

    Simple.

    1. Dress up as 18 year old girl, very slutty
    2. Acquire bra 2 sizes too small
    3. wear a low cut top
    4. Stream in twitch some game you can hardly play while making stupid noises
    5. add donation button
    6. repeat
    7. profit.

    ^Well you could always really try to stream on Twitch. I did it for a few months (female, no boobs showing) and got a decent amount of money for the efforts put (maybe 800$ or so in 4 months). But you know it's work, and I don't think it would be the most efficient way to get money especially if you are a male. Plus you've got to stream anywhere from 5 to 10 hours a day, which is very time consuming.

    I don't really recommend it if you have any kind of active social life.

    We don't want another website around games, we want a revolutionary website that meets our needs, wants, and desires that games create. Easily a product could be designed around this, so I'm going to take my own idea to heart. People don't need to reinvent the wheel to make money, rather reinvent the way you introduce the wheel to the customer, profit, reinvest, repeat. Design a wheel with features that cater to the customer directly and clearly, design sales copy around those features and clarify everything directly but simply, and finally don't go spend all your profits, invest outside the business so that you can afford to do sales battles with you competitors until they are out of business.
