How would you like to get paid to play video games? Beyond Gaming LLC co-founders Gabe Rubin and Noah Krugel have found a way of doing exactly that. In fact, they've been able to turn their hobby into a living, launching a successful company that not only pays its employees but also its customers.

Seven years ago, Rubin was here in metro Detroit playing a game of NHL 2005 on his PlayStation 2 against his brother in California.

"Video games have always been a passion of mine," he says. "My brothers and I would always battle it out, sometimes for money. I thought, 'Wouldn't it be awesome to create a website or portal that would allow people to play head-to-head in multi-player tournament against each other for cash prizes?'"

As Rubin would later find, lots of other people out there also thought that would in fact be awesome.
