Game Testers

Recommended Posts

Worst flippin job in the world if your not looking to get into the industry.Did it years ago in Milton Keyes hated every bloody minute of it. Some remake of Vixen from the commodore 64 days that never made completion.Youd have more fun on a paper round TBH.Oh and my uncle had a friend thats how I got it.

From what I've read, if you wanna get paid for playing games go get yourself an english degree and get into journalism.Online video gaming journalism is booming right now, games companies probably already have their own, army of tester and I imagine it would be a very strenuous job.It's not playing a game through once or twice, it's playing every single possibility on swag, half-completed games over and over again.But I've got nothing apart from hear-say or what I've read to back that up.

lol Games testing is torture (i would imagine).we just hired a sh*t load for Fable 2 because we are in a bug busting phase. In addition we got a team in Redmond testing too.Its long. You try to break the game and log all the bugs. Then you send the report of the bugs which are fixed by the relevant departments (code, design, animation etc.HOWEVER you can progress and work your way up the company from it. Bare people in my work started as testers and are now in production, level design, even art i think. Some even in scripting! lol.my company did do short one week sessions where people were on work experience and testing for a week. If you are looking for full time you just have to find companies that are in the latter stages of their production where they need large amounts of testers.I do know people that love doing it though. Its all relative.
