The best video game player in the world........

lives in Kansas City Missouri. His name is Jonathan Wendell and he has won more than $300,000 playing in tournaments all over the world. Does anybody here play for money? (I got this info from a 60 minutes segment and I don't know how old it is)

I like to play games, but I actually kinda suck at them.

I only finish a fraction of the games I buy, and I never play online for fear of being humiliated by 12 year olds.

If I want to get beat by little kids, my sons are more than happy to take care of that for me.

They compete in tournaments, have sponsors, the whole deal. I'd think it would take all the fun out of it.

I'm pretty sure some Korean dudes have won more money playing Starcraft than Fata1ity here in the States. They're genuine celebrities over there.

Maybe sports should be competitions instead of jobs.

Those Koreans do love their Starcraft.

They follow those guys like we follow the NFL.

Fatal1ty (sp?) also has his own line of gaming-oriented hardware and peripherials (controllers, mice, video cards, etc.). He doesn't make millions, but still, good for him that he's able to turn his hobby into a career.

Heh. And before that, there was "Le Stick Joystick" for the Atari 2600.

Mercury switched, and impossible to use.
