Why do people think gamers are unemployed?

Don't they need an income to pay for games, high end PC parts, 144 Hz monitors, etc?

    Some professional gamers make money from competitions/streaming/sponsorship.

    The vast majority though work like anyone else.

    I think it is because they assume they do nothing BUT sit around and play games. I game quite a bit, but I also work full time.

    The top gamers and YouTubers mostly earn their money from the game and YouTube or what not, and most people don't consider that a real job, hence why they call them unemployed.

      It is, the rest have to work or at least have some sort of other income if they are earning anything from being a gamer, but I guess most people assume gamers are just teenagers who live in their parents basements.
