Are you looking for a job? Do cartoon moths fly out of your wallet every time you open it? Are you, in short, "totally brassic"? If so, then take a look at our Top 10 Ways To Make Money From Gaming. It won't help you financially, or even really entertain you, but it's something to do while you wait for the Jeremy Kyle Show to come on.

Turn professional

Are you good at games? Not just, "yeah, I pwn my mates" good, but good to the point that you're sort of like Rainman with a fight stick? Well then, it may be time to turn pro. Tournaments like the Evo Championship Series cost as little as $10 US to enter, and if you emerge victorious you'll walk off with a cut of the takings – which should amount to about £5,000 or so. Of course, this will mean beating the likes of Daigo Umehara at Street Fighter IV...

Pros: You're being paid to play games. And if you ever manage to enter The Electronic Sports World Cup, you'll find that the prize money reaches ridiculous heights ($50,000+).

Cons: You'll need an insane amount of skill (and practice) to get anywhere. And no matter how good you are, you'll never impress pretty people at parties.

I'm playing this game called Golden towns where people seem to be making decent money. The local currency is GTC and it's value is about $8. Here you can see the latest transactions http://goo.gl/Nuz8Iq I hope I can make it in this game.

Indeed, money can be made from gaming, it is something that happens more and more these days.
The idea of these games is, in my opinion, that when you start playing the game, unless you pay a certain amount of money to get yourself started, you are likely to either spend a lot of time on trivial monotonous things or just simply give it up out of boredom or anger, this being quite a bad thing, quitting before you get to see the fun part of the game.

So this isn't a get-rich-quick scheme, you have to first of all get to understand the way the game works, meet people and get their cooperation and support (*mastermind manipulation*) .

One such game is MarketGlory, so if you want to start playing it use my referral link, if you like: http://www.marketglory.com/strategygame/AnotherAnno (pretty please? :)) )

Have fun and please don't vomit on my shoes!

Cool pic Neon. Looks like you could get that comical Tomb Raider: Secret Orbs of the Wonder Bra sidekick role after all :)

Qoute: "right-wing newspaper."
In this day and age, if you are a little conservative, then you are nothing but a communist. See? We can all play politics.

Please keep your commie political views out of your supposedly non-biased reviews.

Thanks!

Lol nice top 10, but I have a number 11 for the list:

Become a console developer and sell top designs to companys like microsoft or any of tech company who want in on the action:

Pros: Make millions and won't have to deal with whinning about your design since its not your problem

Cons: Don't get the credit you diserve (and thats only if you can find a buyer)

edit: just saw altarangas one, guess I was a bit late.
