    Singing, promo, recording, touring.. I see that as a much harder career which does generally have a larger scope of people to provide for.

    How is one legitimate and the other one isn't?

    Somethings, you can't judge them based on effort. Just because X is harder doesn't make it legitimate or more legitimate than Y or Z.

    Again, some streamers have it easy, some don't. Doesn't mean it's not a legitimate source of income, because it is for a lot of people, and not just for gamers.

    Companies are established. They employ. Etc.. can't be bothered explaining, but compare that to a single person streaming and making a living off it. In my opinion I don't see it as legitimate, comparatively.

    And I've done streaming. Specifically cam work. I still don't see it okay in the way that an actual job/career can be. I don't see it as an effective source for someone to live off of.

    One thing is you thinking if it's not legitimate, another is you thinking it's not effective. If it's the former, sorry but I disagree with you and think you are wrong in thinking that getting money out of streaming isn't legitimate, it is legitimate, if it's the latter, I agree that it's not the most effective way of making a living, for most atleast, or getting income to live.


    Well, this is pretty petty since we differ opinions and neither of us is interested in changing their mind about it.

    If you can be profitable doing it, more power to you. However, if it ends up failing on you, you damn well better be prepared to fall back on a backup job.

    Whoever you fear, fear me more.

    I just mean legitimate in the way that its not a proper job and if someone wants to make a living, they should get a proper job.

    Anyways, I'll be back shortly. Adios for now.

    I did not know that.

    Not like it matters to me though, I won't get any regardless of age.

    I think it's pretty hard for streamers to ACTUALLY make a living. Tbh, I like streamers who do it for a living because my favorite streamer does so, and she probably wouldn't be able to stream as much if she had an actual job.

    You don't have to be good to get money at gaming, look at say, Jesse Cox, love him to death, but both him and I know that he's awful at most games.

    Borderlands 2 won the community choice. $10 is a steal, get it if you can.

    I voted for dishonored, but I was hoping for either to win. Now I can play it with my friends.

    Also, Dark Souls is $7.49 on the flash sale. Get it. It's probably my favorite game of the past few years.

    Yeah, Dishonored.

    Lolwat. Did WSG, everyone was busy fighting in the middle, and I capped the flag three times and won without any interference. Silly Alliance not even trying to stop me.
