The technology of video games has progressed a great deal since the creation of the first video game systems. An example of an earlier video game would be Pong. In this game two players would control simple lines that could only go up or down on the screen. These lines were controlled by paddles and the point of the game was to hit the bouncing ball and make your opponent miss it. The video games of today are much more advanced than that. They offer multiple genres of games that are sure to meet the interests of almost any person. Most of them can also be played online which offers an entire new experience in itself.
Some people may not take the profession of video game testing as a serious career. Video game testing is actually quite important in the development of a game, some would argue that they are just as important as the programmers.
The main job of a game tester is to go through a game, level by level, scene by scene, and make sure that everything is working correctly and that the game is functioning up to par. You will need some knowledge in programming and you will need an eye that pays very close attention to detail. In most cases, the difference between a top seller and a game that does not do well at all is attention to detail.
Chapter 1: Game Testing Basics
Have you ever wondered whose job it is to make sure that video games are working correctly both during and after being developed? The answer to this question is a game tester. If you are interested in video games or really anything to do with electronics, video game testing might be a great career for you. Nothing beats waking up every day and going to a job that they love. It does not even feel like work at that point, it will feel like a purpose or a passion. Video game testers can also make quite a bit of money if they land a job with the right developers.
It is important to remember that being a video game tester does not only consist of playing a video game and simply telling the developer if you like it or not. You will have to have some level of understanding for programming so that you can inform developers and programmers of errors of glitches in the game.
As stated before, you will have to pay close attention to detail and always be watching for something that could be made a little bit better. Even though it may be hard work, if you enjoy video games being a video game tester can be a great way to make some serious cash while doing what you love.
The following chapter will go over the basics of video game testing and will give you some insight on what your responsibilities as a game tester would be.Other Details
