Nobody Compares To Being A Video Game Tester

Aug 18, 2007
If you are even a little bit computer savvy, there's all probability that you must have played games on it too. Everybody likes to play different kinds of games; but one thing is certain. You must have played some game or the other. And you must be having your favorites. Well, every gamer has them. But now there is a chance that gamers can convert their passion into a profession. Becoming a video game tester is very much in vogue nowadays, and is a very hot topic of discussion on game blogs from all over the world.

What does becoming a video game tester exactly mean? Quite simply, it does mean playing a game from the start to finish and inspecting it if everything is okay or not. When gaming companies manufacture games, several teams put the game together. It is not the effort of a single person. For this reason, there are chances that the game could have some flaws or some oversights that need to be corrected before the market release. A video game tester does just that. He or she plays the game through, and reports any errors to the game developers so that they can correct it before launching the game on the shelves.

But why is it so very interesting to become a video game tester? There are several reasons. Being a game tester, all you have to do is play the games and report the flaws in it. For people who are passionate about playing games, things can never get better than that. An eye for detail is a must, but that comes normally to people who have been playing games all their lives. The best part is that all the games that are tested are pre releases, i.e. they have not yet been commercially released in the market. That means, game testers get to play the game titles that have not yet been put on the store shelves. In most cases, the companies would also allow the video game testers to keep the CDs when they are done with it. This is the best perk for someone who loves collecting game titles.

A video game tester can generally spend his or her whole day parked in front of the computer and play games. In how divers professions can someone say that he or she plays to gain money? Game testing allows just that. To top it all, the funds is very good. Game developing companies would provide healthy sums like $80 per hour for testing their games. This figure won't come by initially, but after a short time into the profession, you will be able to earn this much.

There are many benefits in being a video game tester that are unthinkable with other occupations. That is the cause why this trend is exhaustive the youth people of the globe today with such gusto.
