Competitively, yes.
Casually, no.
And there isn't anything "Full-time"

There are many competitive competitions out there such as the DOTA 2 Championships where they give millions to winners.

Very hard WITH youtube.
You have to be a very, very skilled gamer for competitive.

Although, but I'm not sure this is the same, there is a job as a videogame tester. Where you test the game that is being worked on. I'm guessing they play them, take notes on what is okay or needs to be changed or fixed, and contact the designers. Where do you think they get that in-game footage of games when they are not out yet?

It's possible but don't hope on getting into it. Beta testing is a no-skills required job. You won't get a job in it.

I say you can make a server for people to donate money for perks on your server. But you mainly need a very good server that's fun and lot's of people go on and like. Hope this helped :)

You can't make a living collecting donations from kids on the internet. Get a real job instead.
