Dream Job – Game Testing

Real people get paid to play and test video games during development. Next time you think you are wasting your time playing video games, consider putting your hobby to work.

A game tester is someone who works for video game production companies for video game testing before the final version is released to the public.

Game testing, a subset of game development, is a software testing process for quality control of video games. The primary function of game testing is the discovery and documentation of software defects. Interactive entertainment software testing is a highly technical field requiring computing expertise, analytic competence, critical evaluation skills, and endurance. In recent years the field of game testing has come under fire for being excessively strenuous and unrewarding, both financially and emotionally.
