Would You Quit Gaming For $100,000?

Would you take $100,000 with the clause that you won’t be able to play a video game for the rest of your life?

For me initially I said yes then I thought about it more and realized I won’t be able to play future iterations of games like GTA, Pokémon, Halo etc and that has me rethinking my answer a bit. What about you?

There would need to be another 2 zeros on that number for me to quit gaming. A hundred thousand dollars isn't much these days.

Lol yes of course

No. There a very few of my major hobbies I would quit for 100k, if any.

1 million to quit gaming? Without hesitation. 500k? Highly likely I'd quit for good. $250k? Maybe I'd quit.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 144 million (was 73, then 96, then 113 million, then 125 million)

PS5: 105 million Xbox Series S/X: 60 million

PS4: 120 mil (was 100 then 130 million, then 122 million) Xbox One: 51 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

No. In my heart I am a gamer.

Absolutely fucking not. I'd need a LOT more money to even consider it...





No.
Gaming is a fun hobby and money isnt everything. Especially not for that amount lol



tag:"reviews only matter for the real hardcore gamer"

Easiest no ever.



At least one more zero would definitely be needed. The amount of enjoyment that this hobby brings would have to be counterbalanced with other far more expensive hobbies and that $100,000 would disappear in no time.

A million would be an interesting prospect, but I’d live life in torment when the next amazing Zelda, Mario, Animal Crossing, Metroid, etc released and was all the talk.

Not to mention all the crazy things that will happen in gaming in the next two decades.

On the plus side, I’d probably get more reading done, spend more time working in the yard, and be more productive in general. But what fun is that?!
