The Serious World Of.. Video Games?
I have followed video games for my entire life and I love them. I know that some people make a pretty good living at playing them professionally, but an upcoming tournament for a popular game called DotA (Defense of the ancients) has been raising its prize pool, it is currently sitting a little bit short of 7 million dollars and growing. That is enough to make anyone take a blink and reread that sentence. Let me add some more crazy stories of seriousness of video games, Blizzard (a very large game company) is suing the creators of a tool that allows them to cheat, and Google reportedly made an offer to buy Twitch, a website dedicate to streaming videos of people playing video games, for one billion dollars. I could go on about how serious people take video games, but suffice to say the video game industry is one crazy popular industry that you cannot ignore. The bad part is, you are incredibly unlikely to go pro playing video games, but a man can dream cant he?
