Make Extra Income Playing Online Games

The progression of making real money from online gaming has developed into a full-blown market of official businesses. Previously, doing something productive and getting ahead financially were mutually exclusive of video gaming. Nowadays, a Google search online for buying gold or items in a certain game will result in several reputable sites through which trading and payment mediums can be done safely and cost-effectively. This shows the increasing demand for gamers out there who have a surplus of real money but who are either too lazy & impatient or unskilled in the game such that they need to exchange real money for virtual cash & items.


I know that rich parents will make their kids study hard, especially in the Asian gaming communities, followed by letting them play hard! A $50 sword from a video game is the same to the parents as a $50 item from a toy store as long as it makes their kids happy. And to the young slayer of demons and dragons, that virtual sword means much more than a GI Joe (or similar traditional toy you’d have to play with using your imagination.) For the rest of the business-savvy individuals who love to game and are good at it, this opens up a new window of opportunity in that successes in the virtual world can be transferred into the real world.

How does one go about becoming a profitable gamer? Here are a few initial steps; while some may seem fairly basic, many overlook the bare necessities required to maximize their gaming world abilities.

1. Get a decent computer & internet connection – An extra 2 minutes in daily loading times translates to over 12 hours a year. An additional second lag delay in a game could mean a world of difference in a heated battle. You want your game to run very smoothly, and you’ll wish for better graphics to enjoy the game to its fullest. If you can’t afford to upgrade to a better system, I would sacrifice your graphics quality so that the gameplay can flow better, as this will ultimately get you better results.

2. Choose a game you love to play – To make it to a point in the game where you aren’t a ‘noob,’ you’re looking at investing at least 100 hours of gameplay. By this point, you’d better not be sick of the game but rather more immersed from exploration into the higher levels of the game. My three favorite online games, undisputedly three of the current top MMORPGs, are WoW, Diablo 3, and Guild Wars, all offering intensely detailed graphics, fully interactive environments, and comprehensive gameplay.

3. Set up your workspace – Gaming is now called an “E-sport” in many parts of the world. While it’s not as physically demanding as a regular sport, injuries from overplaying or playing in subpar surroundings are common. Net cafes in Asia are prime examples of nasty environments detrimental to individuals exposed for too long. There have been several incidents where individuals (probably very unhealthy) have died from playing games for hours with poor ventilation (they are allowed to smoke inside Asian net cafes), lack of nutrition, rest, and physical activity. While the previous example was extreme, other minor injuries, which can still be quite serious, are often a result of a lack of knowledge regarding sitting in front of a computer for too long (i.e., Carpal tunnel, vertebrae issues, etc.) I could write an extensive list of problems and resolutions here, but we would be going off on a tangent, so for a basic crash course on ensuring that you are gaming healthily, check out: other related sites. Like anything else you do, remember that safety comes first!

4. Coaching and support; Get good at the game – The best part of online games nowadays is interaction; the ability to play with your friends and form clubs (aka. Guilds/clans/possesses). Where it was once fairly fun to go off on quests by yourself, a whole new dimension of gameplay, amusement, and social interaction now awaits as you and your newfound crew can venture off together. In addition to the fun factor, the ability to share information and help each other out is an added benefit. It is crucial to expand your knowledge of the mechanics of the game. Online guides and advice are also good; plenty of free resources are available for most games.

However, to optimize your abilities, you might consider shelling out a few extra bucks for some ‘professional’ advice. For most of us who don’t have game gurus friends who can be our coaches, having a well-organized, step-by-step guide on maximizing your results can be a wise investment. Time is money, and knowing how to execute a certain objective properly can save you countless hours and magnify your bounty. Daniel Chan is an excellent example of a Diablo 3-game guru. His strategy guide provides excellent coverage of advanced methods in the game and a very detailed but well-explained process toward maximizing the gold earned per hour. The more popular games out there will also have their share of gurus trying to make some money; still, as long as their advice and strategies work and are of value, it’s worth a few bucks out of your pocket so that you’re better prepared to make higher returns later on.

5. Selling – One of the most important skills to have in life is to sell – whether it’s a product (real or virtual), an idea, or yourself. In the virtual gaming world, no one cares about your personality. It all comes down to the deal, the bottom line, the cost. Make sure you know the market value of whatever you are trying to sell. This involves researching as market conditions based on supply and demand always change. You must find your buyers once you know what you can get for the item. In-game auction houses/marketplaces are the first few places to look at selling items/gold, but plenty of reputable sites act as exchange mediums through which you can list your items. When looking into these different options, don’t just look at what prices items/gold are going for and the exchange commission costs (the expenses that the market-maker will take for hooking up the trade). You need to figure out what you get after commissions (and, in some cases, tax).

The points above outline what you must do to start a gamer career. While I cannot personally condone doing this for a living (if we were all gamers, the real world would collapse), I can agree that games are addictively fun. Still, everything needs to be done in moderation. A half-day of gaming should have numerous breaks between and preceded or followed by some physical activity to ensure your bodily form does not deteriorate. Remember that your mental and physical state are connected. If your body gets lazy, unfit, and unhealthy, your focus, reflexes, and overall mental health will also suffer. You want to be in peak form daily for the best results,t just in games but your overall life. Kids may not care about their financial status, but for adolescents and older, having some extra cash is undoubtedly a desirable benefit, and making an additional income stream through doing something fun is a no-brainer. Like all other markets, there is competition. For what limited time you will have allotted to games, you’ll want to ensure that it’s well spent. Get your setup right, effectively train, and do your due diligence.
