When Battlefield 4 came out, i got a PC for 700$ which could play it on ultra.

Protip: wholesalers.
On the outside I may appear like an emotionless sarcastic piece of shit but just like an onion when you peel off more layers you find the exact same thing every single time and you start crying.

Here are some Ideas for you:
1. Game testing or “play testing” is where large video game companies employ video game testers, who test games in development and report any problems or glitches they discover.

Although this may sound like a perfect job, approach this money-making scheme with caution.

But websites such as The Tough Life of a Games Tester highlight that this is often not particularly well paid, and that you will not necessarily be able to play games you actually like.

All video games testers sign non-disclosure agreements, so bear this in mind – as well as some of the anonymous comments below – before embarking on a job as a “play tester”.

2.recording videos of you playing games, putting them on YouTube and then monetising them is a possible source of video game income.

However, one thing to watch out for is that for YouTube to allow you to monetise your video, it has to have a running commentary over the entire video, not just snippets or you silently playing the game.

As YouTube’s help pages explain: “Video game content may be monetized if the associated step-by-step commentary is strictly tied to the live action being shown and provides instructional or educational value.

Videos simply showing a user playing a video game or the use of software for extended periods of time may not be accepted for monetization.”

Potential pitfalls are that there is masses of competition out there, and that individual views are not worth much at all, so you need to garner a high number of views to make it worthwhile.

3.Treat it like a program or business. You can work by yourself, or you can start a mini-company by joining together with your friends. Yes, group work means splitting up the funds, but it also means you can get a lot of jobs done quickly and, more importantly, safely, which means you will also be able to go more places.

When working with your friends, divide the tasks fairly and equally (rotating if it keeps everyone happy), take your group around the neighborhood after school or on weekends, and offer to get various tasks done quickly for a set price.
A lot of people will turn away a lone teenager knocking at their door for fear that it will look suspicious. If they see that you’re working as a team, however, they’ll know you can get in and out quickly without concerning the neighbors.
If you are raising money toward a specific goal (ex. buying an instrument, being able to go on a school trip), let people know; they’ll be much more likely to buy stuff from someone with a purpose and may even give you extra.

4. Run errands for an elderly person. Get groceries, do heavy lifting, troubleshoot the computer, or do any other tasks they might have trouble with. Try to have a good relationship with the person; remember that they might be lonely and probably enjoy spending time around younger people such as friends. (It makes them feel younger.) The better they feel around you, the more they'll be likely to give you for your services.

5. Sell stock photos Online. If you have a decent camera and know how to compose an image, try taking stock photos and selling them online. They don’t usually make much per sale, but it’s a fun, passive way to make a little cash while developing an interesting hobby. If you have a nice camera, take black and white pictures, develop them yourself (or get them developed), and sell physical copies, with or without frames.

6. Make crafts to sell. One friendship bracelet, bag of paper beads, or whale made from a plastic straw won’t do much to your piggy bank, but fifty of them sure will (and each one will be faster and easier to make than the last). Since you probably aren’t allowed to sell on campus or in most public places, make a nice collection of these items and include them in your yard sale or, if they’re unique, post them on a craft site like Etsy.

Gather crafts to sell. Crafty people love incorporating natural items into their work. Do you live in the boonies, have a backyard, or know someone who does? Try collecting dried branches and vines. Believe it or not, people will pay good money for manzanita branches, curly willow sticks, birch twigs, sections of gnarled grapewood, budding cattails, and pretty much anything else with an interesting shape. (Look around on a few craft sites for ideas and see if anything in your area stacks up.)
If the holidays are coming up, gather mistletoe (with gloves) and/or pinecones, tie them into bunches with ribbons and cheap bells, and sell them as decorations. If you want to do a more elaborate project and have access to a fallen tree or log, have one of your parents cut it into thick slices, drill four candle-sized holes into each slice, decorate them with fir branches, holly berries, mini pinecones, and/or ribbons, and sell each arrangement as an Adventskrans, a traditional Scandinavian Yule candleholder. You should do this already in November, as they are used through the entire month of December.

Hope it helps you.
