In the Western World, gamers are stereotyped as slackers, lazy and, to an extent, 'geeks'.

In Korea, however, professional gamers are seen as idols and heroes to their many fans.

BBC Click got a look at how big professional gaming is in this country, where a large portion of the population play online games, like Starcraft; the only game in South Korea with its own professional league.

The pros who play Starcraft are on par with the sports stars of the Western World. It's that big.

Take a look at what the BBC has to say about it over on their website.

What do you think? Is professional gaming a good idea? Getting sponsorships and a fixed salary for playing games has to be good, right? Or perhaps you think its a waste of time, and this money could be better spent elsewhere. Whatever your thoughts, let us know in the forums!
