[html]<span style="font-size: large;">Feb. 20, 2016</span><br />
<span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span>
<span style="font-size: large;">&nbsp; &nbsp;The gaming industry is a huge market. From consoles (Xbox One and PS4 the two major brands) to computers to games, controllers (like Scuf or Cinch) to accessories (from HDMI cables to cooling fans to chargers to "red dots".</span><br />
<span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span>
<span style="font-size: large;">&nbsp; &nbsp; Some see it as a waste of money or to buy their kids as just a form of entertainment.</span><br />
<span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span>
<span style="font-size: large;">&nbsp; &nbsp;"Gamers" however see it in several different ways though. Some use it to get online and have fun with their friends and make even more friends as they play with others and compete.</span><br />
<span style="font-size: large;">&nbsp; &nbsp;Some use it as a form of escape and relaxation.</span><br />
<span style="font-size: large;">&nbsp; And some use it to make money.</span><br />
<span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span>
<span style="font-size: large;">&nbsp;"Make money?", you ask. Yes! In the gaming world literally 100's of millions of dollars are earned every year in one way or the other by people playing video games.</span><br />
<span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span>
<span style="font-size: large;">&nbsp; Look at the year 2015 in the video game industry and the top 10 pay-out tournament games.</span><br />
<span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span>
<br />
<ol>
<li><span style="font-size: large;">Dota 2 - over $21 million</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: large;">Smite - over $3 million</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: large;">League of Legends - over $2.5 million</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: large;">Heroes of the Storm - over $2.5 million</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: large;">Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare - over $2 million</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: large;">StarCraftII - just at $1 million</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: large;">Counter-Strike: Global Offensive - over $1 million</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: large;">Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft - over $1 million</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: large;">World of Tanks - over $1 million</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: large;">Heroes of Newerth - just at $500,000</span></li>
</ol>
<br />
<span style="font-size: large;">&nbsp;The highest over all player earnings for 2015 was &nbsp;Peter Dage which earned just under $1.75 million from tournaments on Dota 2.</span><br />
<span style="font-size: large;">&nbsp; &nbsp;Now this does not count earnings he may have made from endorsements, advertisements, YouTube and other venues.</span><br />
<span style="font-size: large;">&nbsp; &nbsp;Nor does this show that by being a gamer that you will earn this or any at all, but the potential is there and there are several 100's of gamers that are earning $30 thousand plus a year just from tournaments plus extra earnings from their other venues.</span><br />

I thought I was playing for fun...but the more I think about it...I think I play to lose money. In the past 2 months I have bought:

Elite Controller
HipShotDot - Just got this little gadget
Xbox Live Gold card 12 months
External HDD
Headset (not a recent purchase...but still)

Next I'll probably have to buy freaking Black Ops map packs if I want anyone to play with me.
I think a crack habit may be less expensive.

My wife left me because of my obsession with Call Of Duty. She won't get far though, I put a claymore by the doorway.

No PS4 but the better half bought a Wii last week. I'm not sure who's bright ides it was to incorporate exercise into video games but I don't think I want any part of it.

Two Xbox ones, one PS4 and a PC that cost more than all of them combined. Not to mention the steady stream of RUM to keep daddy happy. Oh, I forgot about he Wii U.

I also bought a Jeep Wrangle because I feel guilty my kids and I play so many video games, I take them 4 wheeling on the weekends. lol
