I would imagine their parents would be happy to see their child doing something they truly enjoy for a living.

I would imagine their kid who is fresh out of high school making more than what they would make after going through years and years of university or college would quickly change a parent's perspective.

Not to mention people on the internet treat the pro players like legitimate celebrities. They get recognized on the streets. By all accounts, you can't consider them unsuccessful.

On top of that, it's obviously something that the person enjoys doing.

The majority of this board actually thinks being a pro-gamer is a more stable career choice than being in the construction industry.

I would love for my sons to be able to earn a living doing what he loves professionally, be it landscaping, making burgers, trading stocks or playing video games.

As long as they are excelling at what they do, good for them.

If they can make anywhere near what "normal" people make, why not?

Unless you're a Korean, the shelf-life of a pro gaming career is probably 5 years. Maybe a decade.

Not a bad way to go, but certainly not a lifetime career. At some point these guys will have to "start over". And where the hell do you start? What company hires a guy who spent the last decade gaming for a living.
