Probably the most fun to be had making money playing games is playing Online RPGS such as Ultima Online or more recently World of Warcraft. These games are great fun but can take more time to play than what a lot of people have.
In short, people who don’t have the time are prepared to pay real money to take short cuts. I first heard of this concept a few years ago from my Brother-In Law who told me about an online RPG from Korea called Ragnarok
couldn’t believe my ears when he told me that a friend of his had spent many hours playing it to the extent where he was able to acquire magic items that were so rare, there were people will to pay over $100 for these items. I told a friend this who in turn told me about Ultima friv Online and asked me to do a search on “Ultima Online” within Ebay.
I couldn’t believe what I saw, pages and pages of virtual properties which you could buy to keep your virtual items, going for hundreds of dollars; one was going for $600 and another for $1,500!!! I had to laugh when I read the descriptions, one read “Great house in a perfect location with lots of rooms for storing special items”. It sounded like something you would read on a property web site from an estate agent.
For anybody unfamiliar with the game, you can spend days, weeks or even months farming / mining for gold to save enough money to buy weapons and armour. Again, some people just don’t have the time to do this so others would build up characters or attain items and then sell them on Ebay. This game is still played today but is slowly being superseded by World of Warcraft.
As with Ultima Online, World of Warcraft is all about Gold, without this, you are going to find it very hard to buy the weapons and armour you need to make your character strong enough for large scale battles. You may see adverts on the Internet of people or companies selling gold which you can simply buy with real money and then transfer to your World of Warcraft account. There are also various guides you can buy which you can buy to help you attain gold and level up your character much quicker.
