You should not let the title ‘video game tester’ fool you into thinking that this is not a job but the chance to be paid to do what you love the most. While it is true that video game testers have a lot of fun playing the games that they fell in love with at a young age, it is also a very serious job.
Gaming companies use video game testers to ensure that the products they are about to release into the market have no issues. A video game riddled with bugs and errors will definitely put people off. As such, the job of being a video game tester, also known as a quality assurance tester, is very important and comes with a host of responsibilities. The good news is that the job also comes with many benefits that you can enjoy while playing your favorite video games.
Some of the responsibilities of a video game tester include:
1) Finding bugs and errors in the game
This is one of the primary responsibilities of being a video game tester. You need to play the game over and over again (and in different combinations) so as to ensure that there are no bugs that will interfere with the functionality of the game. There are databases and protocols put in place by the gaming company to ensure that you will be able to report any discovered bugs to the game developers.
You will often find that the company will evaluate your performance based on the number of bugs that you will be able to spot. It is not enough to find the bugs in the software. You also have to be able to reproduce the bug several times, so as to show that it is of sufficient concern to be looked at. When a gaming company is developing a game, it is usually on a tight schedule. This means that it will only consider serious bugs that will disrupt the progress of the game and ruin the experience for users.
2) Testing the limitations of the game
As a video game tester, you will also be tasked with the responsibility of finding out the craziest and strangest things that users will be capable of doing with the game in question. Some players might want to go to the farthest point on the map in the game. Others might want to create the largest possible army in the game. It is your role to find out if the game can handle the stress of such anomalies. If it cannot, then you should quickly make your report to the game developers.
3) You have the responsibility of making the sure that the game can be beaten
It is also important to find out whether the game can be beaten or not. Releasing an unbeatable game into the market will only frustrate interested gamers. They only want to be challenged hard enough that they have to exert themselves a lot to win. However, they still want to win in the end. It is your role to find out if this can actually happen.
Some of the benefits that you stand to enjoy as a video game tester include being able to play games that have not yet been released. You also get the chance to have a comprehensive list of cheat codes for a particular game. The biggest benefit is that you will be paid for something that you are very comfortable with and happy doing.
