Most of the 90s kids would remember video games as a source of joy like none other. While most of the games were limited in context, they would have the players hooked on for hours at a stretch. That is when another distinct memory of these video games came into being - a scolding from parents.

Well mom and dad, turns out, gaming wasn’t so bad after all. A couple of decades on and the world of gaming has been one of the fastest growing industries in the world. A hint of the industry’s growth can be judged from the fact that the gaming industry saw profits pouring in even during the global COVID-19 pandemic this year.

This constant financial growth has a reason. Companies from the field of sports like Adidas to technology giants like Microsoft to those serving everyday items, all have turned their attention as well as their money to the gaming industry. Motive - to capture the attention of the young audience that is mostly engrossed in these games.

And hence it does not come as a surprise that those who stuck to the craft as gamers have managed to make the big bucks. How big? As much as $17 million or upwards of Rs 127 crore a year!

That, of course, is the annual income of the top-earning gamer in the world - Ninja (Tyler Blevins). Here is a list of those like Ninja that have managed to earn exorbitantly well through online gaming.
