Join a gaming focus group, get paid if you qualify

Make some money with those heated opinions

Destructoid is sponsored in part by PanelofGamers, a division of VGMarket, that pays gamers to complete focus group surveys from home. Some surveys offered right now are paying $20 per completion.  The names of the companies aren't expressly disclosed as to not give away information for unannounced titles, but you'll be serving clients like EA, Blizzard, Capcom, Sony, and earning a portion of dat Zynga moneyCheck it out for yourself.

Obviously, this is not for everyone. I'd go as far as saying it's not for most of you. These survey are long and can sometimes be tedious, and they're looking for a very specific user in some cases (age/location/existing habits). As such, you may not qualify for all of the work offered.  When it does work out, you get paid, so that's neat.

We hope some of our younger or employed readers will find this service useful. Disclosure: As a media partner, Destructoid earns a commission for making this introduction.
