We love video games — and we’re willing to spend our money on them. A lot of money. In America alone, people spent over $43 billion on games in 2018. Globally, video gaming’s global revenue is estimated to be nearly $140 billion in 2019.
For an industry that used to be associated with slackers and stoners, video gaming has become a money-making juggernaut, with some titles bringing in billions of dollars and selling millions upon millions of titles. In fact, if you could earn just a few days’ worth of revenue from some of these games, you’d be set for life.
