Want to play video games for a living? You might have stumbled onto a lucrative career path.
More than one hundred million people watch people play video games on the website Twitch.tv every month, which makes Twitch.tv the fourth largest website in the US in terms of peak traffic, just behind giants Netflix, Google and Apple.
What’s more, the top streamers (people who play video games for others to watch) can earn a very good living. An article in Forbes estimated that top streamers can make upwards of $300,000 a year.
