Get paid $2,000 to play video games with a friend

Talk about a dream job!

A tech company in the United States is offering $2,000 (roughly P95,000) to a pair of friends willing to play 21 hours of video games together and report back on their experience.

Internet provider FrontierBundles is looking for "pairs of gamers with a ton of virtual history" purely for research purposes to assess if people play video games better solo or with someone by their side. 

We want gaming duos who’ve blasted down countless zombie hordes, reclaimed Earth ten times over from blood-sucking space aliens, and who love to tackle the newest gaming challenge as much as they enjoy replaying retro throwbacks,” according to the announcement.

Applicants will be asked what their favorite game is and why they should be chosen. Each selected person from the pair will earn a cool $1,000 after they fill out the assigned tasks and report their gaming findings.

Unfortunately for gamers around the world, the site is only accepting applicants based anywhere in the United States.

Still, the lucky selected winners will receive a swag bag filled with gaming essentials, so they can play together while remaining remote. Each bag will include a Nintendo Switch Lite, access to both modern video game favorites and retro video game classics, and a load of snacks to fuel the online adventures.

Face it, you’re probably already vegging out clocking in more than 20-plus hours a week playing video games, so why not get paid to play with a friend for some cool cash, right?

If you had the chance, who would you want to take on this challenge with? Tag your go-to player two!
