Gaming industry nowadays is brighter than before. Now gaming has evolved from a pastime to a sport and money earning leisure. There are lots of game Olympics and tournaments that involves a lot of money and investment. Gaming schools are now popular in other countries that train prospects for future tournaments.

I am not sure how good that is going to be. We have seen many paralyzed generations due to too much gaming. Many people are not much functional in real life due to too much gaming. And also other issues. So not all the time this can be a good investment. Just my 2 cents.

This is true that even sports men like footballers are now being used to promote some games. They organize competitions and want those that feel that they are the best to come and compete. Gaming is going global and is now being accepted as one of the ways that one can get relaxed.

Yes, a few people have made a lot of money playing and talking about video games on Twitch - people watch their favorite gamers on this channel and they can subscribe to their favorite channel. They can watch these entertaining live gamers, also they make money with advertising as well on this site.

Then, I have to learn more about how the site called Switch works. I'm someone that enjoys playing games most of the time and the thing about that is I even go to the extent of having the thoughts to learn more and make some cool money from it. This is what this platform will offer me to make money as a gamer.

Sorry, I meant Twitch not Switch-which is a new home video game system from Nintendo. Check these videos out below for Twitch !

The truth is that gaming is now a major source of leisure to most people and the gaming industry is directly exploiting that in making tons of money over the years now. People can't literally live without games in this our current generation, so it's only wise to see it as a feasible option in making a good investment.

The question isn't how good this games are in the society but how far people would go in engaging with playing and this means more money for anyone who runs an investment in the gaming sector. Just like you pointed out, ".... Many people are not much functional in real life due to too much gaming...", this only mean that lots of people are putting in a good amount of money into gaming and this makes an investor in gaming industry more richer.

You are quite correct, I can tell you one vivid example where Jose Mouriho is the lead promoter of Top Eleven Football Manager game. I never wanted to play that game but on seeing Jose to be the games promoter, it swayed my interest to playing it immediately.

There are those that run and own gaming houses and game stores. These people make a good reasonable amount of money on daily basis with no questions asked. I know this because I have a friend who takes care of his family by just owning a game house.

You are right in the sense that most of the game developers now use popular stars to promote their game and they know that it is always possible for us to want to play as a result of the person used to promote the game.

I think it can be money draining to be honest. Some games are slow. And some are hard. So getting people to watch the videos. And then making sure to earn from that hobby. It's a big task.

Gaming is among the top 5 leisure people engages in today and if anyone can find it possible to invest in gaming or games in any way, there is a 80% possibility of making a huge breakthrough with profit because definitely people would patronize the gaming industry.

If I'm not mistaken, more than 75 percent of the youths and including adults are involved with gaming in one way or another. So therefore, making some kind of an investment in such venture would definitely yield a big amount of money in excess of profit because more people are joining into gaming as the day goes by.

It's a known fact that the young people of these generations are more into gaming unlike the people of the old time before the advent of online and offline console games. So, making an investment in such field would definitely be a good way to making a huge return on profit.

I think unless you are trying to find something professional out of gaming. It can be bad addiction. And it may not be always suitable for many people. So one should be careful of such habits. And it's always better to keep some distance in some of such case.

In my opinion, if you making investments on gaming as a habit and addiction in which in turn it pays you a great deal of money, I would certainly say that it's worth it absolutely. Not entirely everything people get involved with pays them, so if investments in gaming can do that, then it's a positive addiction.

What this thing the game producers are doing is called using influencers to work. These influencers have the power to sway people's choice and interest when a particular commodity is involved and its exactly what they did with the online football manager game with Mourinho as it's chief influencer.

Watching these videos doesn't come for free, there are prices to be paid for it. It's really a big task just as you said and the funny thing is that people are still getting into the it more often.
