That would depend on the game. Also, how involved you are in the game.
games are a finicky business, especially online games.
When mark made the Affiloblueprint he made it by building a site on World of Warcraft.
My first site was in that niche as well, and it did well until Blizzard made some changes in the game which made most of the guides I was promoting, and about half of the articles on my site, obsolete. Rather than trying to update everything, for me it wasnt worth the effort because I was not involved with the game, and didnt want to get back into it just to write new articles for my site.
Also, with the success I had, I tried doing other sites with other games, and they did not do as well.
HOt topic games are doing well, but you have to stay involved to be on top of the niche.
Farmville guide games are doing well right now, but they could be gone tomorrow.
Personally, I prefer more long term niche markets. Things like dating advice, self esteem, weightloss,and dog training. These are all highly profitable niches that people will have problems with for years to come. One or two sites could give you a decent income that runs almost on autopilot.
