This depends on your experience and skills.<br />3. You get to play the games before everyone else and on occasion you get to keep the games you have tested or you can buy them cheaper than retail<br />
  13. 13. Whatis the upside of game tester jobs?<br />Sometimes you can work from home, then they will send you the game through mail and you only have to fill out a form which requires your opinion of different elements of the game, like: “What is your opinion of the tutorial, the menu, the game play or loading times?”, things like that<br />
