Maxximus 353 Posted June 3, 2014 Share Posted June 3, 2014 Got the idea for this from watching a well known youtube let's player's stream. Not only is he streaming on youtube and twitch and making money from views but is also accepting donations. In the time I've watched(less than an hour) he's made over $400 from donations alone for sitting in front of a screen and failing to get past the first two levels of Super Mario World. On top of the donations he's partnered with both youtube and twitch so, like I said, he's making money from those views. Not only that but he'll upload the stream to youtube once it's done and make even more money from those views. All he's doing is sitting there and failing at a video game and he probably makes more money in a month than I will all year. Has this fad destroyed the hard work ethic that out parents and grandparents had? A lot of children watch these youtubers and look at them as celebrities and role models. Is this acceptable? Would you let your children emulate these people? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
