Fun and Profit From Computer Gaming

For some students, the fourth hour of dungeon exploring and bomb defusing comes all too quickly.Students in campus residences, with high-speed Internet connections and easily available software, often fall victim to the latest crop of hot computer games, such as this year's "Diablo II" and the "Half-Life" add-on "Counter Strike." Along with other top selling games such as "Black & White" and "The Sims," students have a wide variety of choices when it comes to avoiding school.Although the games range in price from $19.99 at K-Mart for Counter Strike to $34.86 for Diablo II at Wal-Mart, some addicts have found a way to justify their cost and even profit from the numerous hours mastering the games demands.Cosmin Banciu, a sophomore computer science major and avid Diablo II player, has made $120 by auctioning four 'items' used in the game, such as swords and weapons necessary to advance to the higher levels.
