Game Tester has no experience, but it’s because all I have ever done is play games. I’m not a gamer, I’m just a consumer of games. I’m going to assume that you’re a gamer.
Game Testers work as long as there is a game to play. I think that is why the industry is so over saturated with game tester roles. If you don’t know the basics of a game you’re not going to be able to determine if it’s worth your time or not. You need to know the basics of a game before you can even begin to play it.
So, if you are not a gamer (or game tester), then you have no idea what you are doing. I mean, I could be wrong, but I would be willing to bet that someone who has no gaming experience would be better qualified to be a game tester than someone who knows nothing about games. Just like we don’t all know what we’re doing with a computer, so we shouldn’t all know what we are doing with a game tester.
In the real world, game tester jobs are very competitive with the best paid positions. You have to know how to program, how to program a game, how to market, and how to get your game from concept to release. There are also plenty of tests to give you a chance to prove yourself.
While the game testers job is certainly competitive, you can become a game tester by taking on just one test. We recommend taking on two tests, because you get more experience, you get to learn the ins and outs of game testing, and you get to work with other testers. For example, a couple of years ago, we were starting a game designer position, and we hired a couple of game designers from the game design department.
However, you should be prepared to take on other tasks, like writing documentation, completing surveys, and so on. We’ve had testers who had been doing all of these things for years and just decided to take a chance on a new job.
In the past, our testers have been hired for a couple of reasons. We hire testers based on experience, knowledge, and qualifications. However, if a particular tester isn’t doing enough to impress us, or is having a bad day, we can throw him/her to the wolves and let someone else do the job. Also, you should consider whether you would like to be a full-time game tester.
The answer to that question depends on your personality, but in general, full-time game testers are a good place to start. They are not usually new to game development, and they can still learn a lot that is applicable in game development. As a new tester, you will need to learn a lot of the processes and tools involved in game development, so your training will also be very useful.
