How much money have you made playing games?

I just recently started playing CS:GO, and I've been selling most of my weapon cases/skins. I've only gotten a few worth more than $.25, but I've made about $15 in the past few weeks. That's not much at all considering how much time I've been spending on CS lately, but it's a nice bonus considering I'd still be playing whether I was making money or not.

How much have you guys made, and which game(s) were you playing?

0, unless you count Steam trading cards. Then I've made around 2.50

Since childhood, counting tournaments here in Los Angeles, I've made a total of maybe...$6500

From Mortal Kombat, to Halo, Guitar Hero, Tekken, Dance Dance Revolution, Counter-Strike, and Super Smash Brothers. Whenever I saw a video game tournament, big or small, I entered to test my skills and meet some amazing people along the way. I've gone to the World Cyber Games, Intel Extreme Masters, World Championship Gaming, and Major League Gaming events from L.A. to Las Vegas. I never placed in the top 10, but I've never been last. But oddly enough, I was one of the VERY FEW who went into every game with a "fun" attitude. Some people forgot that in the end, they're just video games.

I since quit competitive gaming when I joined the Navy, and I don't miss it. But building and benchmarking computers has since filled the void that it left. I always wished I was good at Starcraft though. God forbid I ever play online, I have trouble playing the campaign on Casual. >.>

Zilch. Unless you count that time I bet my brother I could beat Super Mario World for a million billion dollars with 15% interest per year. He still hasn't payed me though. It's been like 20 years.

I won a Guild Wars Shirt, AlienWare hat, AlienWare pen, a Warmachine Hoards cardmat, and about 20 bottles of Bawls.

Never won money though.

I sold my BBow in Flyff for $30. Also, I got $1.40 or so from selling some trading cards on Steam.

If someone wanted to buy the rest of my Flyff gear it would've/would be more, but I don't even care enough to passively try to sell that any more.

I sold my only Unusual Hat from TF2 for about $90 on the Steam Market this past summer. But it probably doesn't cancel out the money I've spent on keys and cosmetics for both TF2 and Dota 2.

Got a Black Laminate AK skin that I could sell for $11, gonna keep it though (cause it's pretty rare and looks nice at the same time). A friend of mine uncrated a stattrak brand new Case Hardened AK, sold if for $60. Next crate, he got a stattrak brand new AWP BOOM, which he sold for over $115.
