10 Ways to make money playing games

There are many ways you can make money playing games such as

  • Gold and Item farming, wherein, you hunt for virtual items that can be sold in-game to other players who do not want to hunt around.
  • Game testing, but before you get too excited, know that testing games as a profession is not particularly lucrative.
  • Unofficial guides and walkthroughs and then convert them into ebooks that can be sold on KillerGuides. People have been known to write 100+ pages of guides for the Lord of the rings games that have sold $29.99 a piece!
  • Recorded gameplay videos with commentary that you can monetize on Youtube with ads
  • Sell advanced characters on PlayerAuctions as there are potential buyers for fully loaded characters that you spend hours building up through hard work.

In addition to these ideas, there are other sites that will pay you just to play!
