    You couldn't make it a full time job, and there are more effective ways of making money when you have 14 hours a day spare. Saying that, I did sell a couple of Runescape accounts and some gold back in the day.

    Hard to make real money playing games since every 10-21 year old in the world would be competing for any job there was for that. It would almost always be the case that the cost of the computer, internet, and electricity would outway any money you made, let alone the time you spent... maybe you could earn like $0.20/hr profit but you would not be having any fun. There are bots out there playing the game so one guy in a room has 10 different World of warcraft accounts going at once. He still likely only makes about $10/hour and he has the paths down, optimal grinding zones, and everything.

    Yes, it is very much possible to make loads of money by playing games -
    in fact there are pro gamers who use special keyboards and mouse to play games.

    Selling accounts is more of a hobby; you play when you're home from work for about 2 hours a night and at the end of the month that's an extra 1000 bucks, I guess.
    Some can make a living out of this, but they're not millionaires. You take three friends and you all take shifts, and in 24 hours you can have a good character.

    But, it gets repetitive. You're grinding the same monsters and finishing the same quests over and over again, and you've been doing it for 48 hours straight. You also have to take into account the money spent on subscription.

    I was thinking the same thing, i looked around on the web and seen people selling wow accounts highest was $900 and average around $500-600 for level 60's. i sold some old characters from Dark age of Camelot and made $400.. But took awhile to get them where they were and played them for fun not out with the intention of selling them.

    While all the debates going on whether this is a viable way to earn money from the net or not. I believe it will depend on the intent and amount of effort spent. It will be the same question of is work really work when you enjoy it? Going by some of the maths that are seen in past post. If you do earn $10 an hour and you play for 16 hours that is $160 per single day. With that in mind i seriously think you can get by with earning that amount of money per day.

    Point i am trying to make is yes there are ways to earn money, but is the money earned worth it and is it enough to pay your bills to be a decent job. Also the 2nd most important thing is do you enjoy doing it?
