Sell steam cards from games.


well that would require you to own the game first, and wouldn't be a very good way of making money. Unless you mean mine the marketplace and buy cards for cheap and sell for high, even then the money wouldn't be worth it.

Try Team Fortress 2. I made over $20 selling stuff I didn't even realize I had on there one time.

Well you could play a ton of Dota 2 and sell the items that drop on the community market for $0.03

You can sell stuff on TF2!? I have a ton of crates that I'll never open that I wouldn't mind making a few bucks off of, some from way back when they were first introduced. Do they increase in value the longer you hang on to them?

Outside of becoming a very popular streamer/professional gamer/popular youtuber, there isn't really anything worth doing with games to make money. Just play your games for fun. If you have a job, then I can't see why you're trying to make money off D3 or any game. My friend had a good 400 hours in D3 and made 100 bucks before they took away the RMAH. 90 of that 100 came off 1 lucky item, lol.

If he was actually playing for money instead of for fun, like he was, and he had a job instead for those 400 hours, then he'd probably have around $2200 with a minimum wage job. Trying to make money of games is stupid unless you're one of the three things I listed earlier.

Yes here:
http://steamcommunity.com/market/

Don't expect your crates to sell, there are literally millions of crates in the market and they don't sell very fast. Keys are very easy to sell on the market, basically trade all your items for metal and then trade metal for keys can get you a few bucks.

Become a LoL streamer. Some of them claim they get like 5-10k per month if not more.

You can make money gold/rare item farming or character selling in MMO's as well, but it's got to be horrendously boring and low paying. Not to mention you'd have to take a further hit selling it to the gold farming sites unless you set up some reliable way to sell it without a middleman.

Really, looking to gaming to make money isn't going to work. Either it involves something incredibly tedious (gold farming ,etc), requires you to have god-tier luck (selling an incredibly rare item, like some people did in D3), or even in the best cases (like the early days of Second Life, or a few rare MMO guilds based around selling high level loot) you have to set up something akin to an actual business.

It basically amounts to working at it like you would a real job, except in 99.9% of cases it's much more tedious and low paying. You'd make more per hour working entry level fast food than trying to gold farm or get lucky with item drops, and it wouldn't be as soul-shatteringly boring.
