It’s been a while since Web Watch has looked at the TOP GROSSING VIDEO GAMES for iPhones, iPads, and Android devices. Let’s take a look at which games people are paying to play this month:

eSports is turning into a big business these days.
So how much money can a professional eSports video game player earn as a career? Let’s take a look at what the ATLANTA HAWKS ARE PAYING THEIR eSPORTS PLAYERS in the newly purchased NBA2K league team that they’re fielding:
Each 2K team consists of six players (one being a sub), with six-month salaries that range from $32,000-$35,000 salary. Players can also earn money from endorsements, meaning the top gamers likely earned six-figure incomes in their first year. The Hawks will also pay for housing, relocation, medical insurance and a retirement plan. Professionals in the Overwatch League, receive similar perks plus a $50,000 minimum base salary during the season.
So if parents are concerned about the viability of their children becoming professional video game players, they probably shouldn’t worry. Heathcare and retirement benefits? COUNT US IN!

Congratulations! You have a new job!
…and you find out you hate it. Like, really really really hate it.
Do you hate your job so much that you despise going to the office and working with the other people there, and every day is a struggle just to show up and do your assigned tasks?
And yet you continue to go through the motions, because you kinda like your assigned duties – it’s the environment and everything around that’s really not agreeing with you.
When one thinks of VIDEO GAMES, you don’t really think that POPULAR MECHANICS would be considered an authority on the subject.
You’d be wrong.
