How to make money off MMORPGs?

razor716razor716 Member UncommonPosts: 9
So I've been playing MMO's since I was about 7 or 8 years old. I used to make RSMV's, Machinimas, and other types of videos for games and funny videos, I ended up getting 30k -50k on one of my videos one time over a period of about a year which I  thought was pretty good considering I was just a little kid with no experience or anything. Basically all I do is play MMOs because jobs are really scarce in my area right now and health problems. I've always dreamed of becoming popular on Youtube and making tutorials for games and other stuff. I watch a lot of TheLazyPeon's first impressions and certain Let's Play's on there. I'm from back in the Numa Numa WoW video days and Halo 2/3 Machinimas, I'm blue videos, crazy frog, Windows movie maker and unregistered hypercam 2 days.

So what I'm wondering is how to make money off making videos for games or how to get a job for some kind of company that does reviews or tutorials for games? I have a lot of experience with tech support, been working and building computers since I was a little kid and playing games on the PC. I can type over 130+w/pm without looking and have been able to since I was about 13 which is quite impressive. I'm trying to get a job at BestBuy repairing computers but I really want to do something like this.

I just bought a brand gaming desktop which is capable of running any game, program etc. I have a good headset with microphone and can get a webcam if needed.

    Forgot to add I'm also a very good voice actor and can do many different accents, impressions, etc. and believe in the principle that it's not what you say but how you say it. I'm a very knowledgable person about these types of things which is why I think I would be good in this type of work. If anything I'll just start making videos about something to do with games but I have no idea what since I'm grown up now and all it seems kind of repetitive now. If anyone has any ideas please let me know.

    Follow this guide.  
    As said by a person that has been doing this for years, it's pretty accurate. 
    Just warning you, the video is offensive towards streamers,but has good valid tips. 


    Basically clicking away text windows ruins every MMO, try to have fun instead of rushing things. Without story and lore all there is left is a bunch of mechanics.

    You made a really good plan and I am sure that it will work, but there are always small problems which will disturb you during the realization and it's always better to address to professionals and to make sure that everything that you have planned will fulfill, for example when I was making small games on Flash I was always visiting and consulting with the specialist which were working at, they suggested me the best ways how I can make my game not only famous so that in future to make money from it. And it helped because at only 16 years old I was already making for about 2-3 thousand dollars per month.
