Gamers are some of the most intense people on earth. Many gamers spend more time playing games than they do any other single activity .As new, more intense games hit the market, gamers have only one option. Purchase it!

I fully understand that many non gamers dont understand what drives a person to spend sixty dollars for the latest game in stores , even though those prices are considered to be so high. I wont even attempt to explain that. In my personal opinion, gamers understand. You are either a true gamer or you are not. Unfortunately, there is no middle ground on that one.

Games have become such a major pass time in young and middle aged society, that it has permeated professions. Doctors now use game like controls to perform surgeries and the military has begun using vehicles that are operated remotely based on game play. Playing games is not just for kids any more.

Just for reference, if you are old enough to remember the days when Pong was the most exciting game out, you are in the middle-aged category. Back then, people called games a phase that would die out or loose its grip on individuals as they got older and matured. Well, that assumption is out the window. Due to the enormous, gigantic and utterly amazing leaps in game technology, Gamers are finding a veritable never-ending buffet of electronic games to feed their insatiable game play appetites, irrespective of the users need for complexity.

While many will debate as to which console is best, consoles such as the Play Station 3, Xbox 360, and the Nintendo Wii are all viable options for creating fun for the whole family.

However, for those gamers that are basically chomping at the bit to compete even when they are away from home, these systems are of limited value. So, gamers are turning to the free internet based online games that are springing up all over the internet. Free online game websites cant provide all of the powerful impact of the game consoles that are hitting the market, due in part to bandwidth issues but they can supply a between meal snack to stave the hunger that drives gamers to do what they do. Im not addicted to games but the shear number of games on the market entices me to by more and more says Jason Crombeck. I know I spend too much money on games but their fun. So, I know Ill keep doing it.

A new trend is emerging. To afford the ever-growing number of games and game consoles, game players are turning to playing free online games that allow them to earn cash. The resulting cash is then used to purchase games and consoles. A Playstation 3 Costs between 500 and 600 dollars and many gamers are holding on to their PS2s until they can earn enough money to get their PS3 or other console.

Ten out of Ten gamers polled say that the cost of games adversely affects their budgets for other things. Eight of ten polled believe that they would by more games if they could somehow offset the effect of game prices on their budget. Eight of ten polled gamers admit knowingly spending money earmarked for other projects on games and game related materials. Eight out of ten admit that they anticipate spending money earmarked for other projects on games and game related materials in the future.

There are ways online to earn money for purchasing games and even game consoles. Many of the solutions cost money to get started and that deters gamers from using them. However, other solutions are free and require less effort from the user. Among the better options for earning the money necessary to keep up with the various game releases is the TypoBounty game. It is uniquely suited to allow gamers to earn money to buy games, because it is a game itself and can be used without cutting into gaming time. Gamers simply point out errors online for an opportunity to earn 2 dollars per error. They can compete against buddies to see who can earn the most. Then they can use the money to buy the latest game titles.
