There is an exception to every rule, there are people that would never sell out their values or do something they disagree with for any amount of money under any circumstances.

However almost all streamers get paid to stream games and almost all popular youtubers will take sponsored deals, it's considered part of the job. It's not even selling out unless you really hate the game and then say you like it for money.

..and he was playing ffxi for free for months, yet people were complaining because he was playing on a private server. For those people, this is how much him playing your game costs normally.

He's probably one of those idiots who think "Abyssea ruined the game" or "75 cap era was sooooo much better1!1!" like all the other retards on Nasomi.

If there was no chance of being caught I think most people would murder for money. Why wouldn't you? God doesn't exist.

Best part of 75 cap era was spending hours with party flag up trying to get into an experience party...good times.

Thread title was confusing at first.. At first glance, sounds like he paid someone $1mil for the privilege of playing their game. XD

Not all that surprising tho.. still cheaper than running a single commercial on national television.

To me the weird part is that people watch other people playing video games. Not vids on how to beat a dungeon or boss, not heroically soloing impossible NMs, just gameplay.

Yeah, I used to think the same thing, mainly because it seems like the vast majority of popular game players either cater to 12-year-olds or otherwise act like total tools.

But then through the magic of YouTube recommendations, I eventually discovered streamers who are both hilarious and decent human beings. Unfortunately that usually translates into them being less successful, because for some reason people would rather watch and support an idiot like PewDiePie. Go figure.

Morality is purely subjective either way

I'm loving the false equivalency of murdering or raping someone for $1,000,000 and playing a *** video game for $1,000,000 lmao. If someone wanted me to play hello Kitty Island Adventure for a weekend for $1,000,000 I'd do it, and if you wouldn't you're a *** idiot.

the actual numbers for advertisment deals like this are probably off. i've heared befor that for example hollywood actors get X amount paid but later have to return Y amount by contract just to title higher numbers in the headlines when promoting the movie.

and it works, people are talking about it even tho they never watched the streamer.

some statements in this thread makes me wonder if the cops are about to knock at certain peoples doors.

Hmm with that nose he must be a warlock in real life casting a spell on us to believe he is a ninja.

FFXI getting a shout out on a network late night show? Pretty awesome.

Clown hair aside, he's not a bad interview.
