As a gamer growing up, I never thought you could game for a living. I could have never imaging becoming famous and getting paid millions for doing something I enjoyed so much. Of course you have to be good at it… but I guess Justin Bieber was right. Never say never.
There are great reasons why you wouldn’t evolve your Pokemon.
This is eSport baby! Growing up as a gamer, I could have only dreamed of turning my passion (addiction) of playing games into a successful career.
Just geeking out over anime.
While we wait for the show to come back on, this will have to do!
This video makes me want to get off my butt and go out into the world and do things with my life. No seriously. I want to say that I’m a hard worker but then there are people like Annchirisu who works even harder. She had a heck of a year last year. So did so many of other YouTubers that I admire. I just think it’s great that there are so many sources of inspiration out there.
just like phil and jen, i grew up in the 90’s. there were a lot of great things about growing up in the 90’s. some of those things are mentioned in the video. but then again, the graphics in video games and movies are WAAAAAY better nowadays and the current technologies available makes life so much easier/better. no, i didn’t get to grow up in a world full of the technology we have now but hey, life was much simpler back then and i got to enjoy it that way for a long time. i have fully embraced whatever changes that came my way and have learned to appreciate life as it comes.

Whether or not you want to call playing video games a sport and the gamers athletes, the gears have been turning to make professional gamers athletes at the legal level since July 2013. Five months later, we have our first gamers to obtain such recognition, Kim “Violet” Dong Hwan, a 23-year-old South Korean StarCraft player, followed by League of Legend star Danny “Shiphtur” Le of Canada.
What does this mean for gamers? International gamer gamers are now able to obtain P-1A visas which will allow them to live, compete, and earn a salary in the United States for at least the next five years. In the bigger picture, the sky is the limit for games and gamers everywhere! Look at it this way, waaaaay back when, people kicked spherical objects around with one another for fun, then they made up rules and made it a game, then they called it fulball/soccer and before you know it, the game became legally recognized as a sport and the players athletes. Same thing here with games, I’m just saying….
Sony hopes to make money with games instead. They should have an easier time this time around since the Playstation 3 was sold at a loss. The PS3 console went for $599 but cost around $800 to build.
