Video Game Tester Jobs Review

  1. 1. Video Game Tester Jobs Review<br />
  2. 2. Introduction<br /> Hello there and welcome to this review.<br /> Video game tester jobs have reached the attention of the interested public for a while now.<br /> It is indeed a fact that game developers have learned that game testers are needed to find and report errors in early stage of production and development. <br />
  3. 3. Who are more qualified for that job than gamers who actually have gaming experience, right?<br /> Fortunately game developing companies discovered this to be a fact as well so now they actually look for gamers to provide them of detailed information to make sure that mistakes in the game are found in time so better versions of the games can hit the market a lot sooner.<br />
  4. 4. You can also see that some game developers adjusted their websites to make the job searching part of their site a lot more user friendly.<br /> For you this means you can browse for different game companies and search for available video game tester jobs.<br />
  5. 5. Why would you want to apply for video game tester jobs?<br />
  6. 6. Well, obviously you have a passion for video games and you like the idea of testing games for a living, otherwise you would not be here. <br />If you work as a game tester you have a better chance to get to use the resources the company has to offer to grow and become a designer or programmer <br />
  7. 7. Salary is better than most jobs which can be $10 - $30 an hour for the beginning game tester<br /> In some cases you can get the final version of game for free or cheaper than retail price <br />In some cases a part time game tester can work from home<br />
  8. 8. However the best part remains: <br />You will get paid to play video games.<br />
  9. 9. What do you need to become a video game tester?<br />
  10. 10. Of course the idea of testing video games for a living beats most scenarios of working in most other jobs, but certain qualities are expected. <br />If you choose to use the PC as your working system, you are expected to know how to use the operating system . It would be wise to use that PC for work purposes only.<br />
  11. 11. Game developers expect their game testers to provide them with quality observation reports with detailed information. <br /> Where is the bug, what does it look like, when does it happen, why does it happen and can you explain and report it in usable way?<br />
  12. 12. Further you must have a lot of patience to do these video game tester jobs. <br />For instance:<br />Imagine a bug in the game that requires you to reboot the system like 15 times. Without passion for video games this could become a serious problem.<br />
  13. 13. The Conclusion<br />
  14. 14. Give it the best you got. Video game testing is a serious job and it comes with responsibility but fortunately also with a lot of fun. <br /> Determine the goals you wish to achieve within the company and make sure that your employer knows about them so you can be supported in that.<br /> Every employer favors the goal oriented.<br />
