Worst jobs in the games industry

Worst jobs in the games industry Being the whiney-ass jerks we are, we love to complain about our jobs. “Xpublisher is being a dick! Every game I play sucks! I hate doing a job that thousands of people would kill baby seals to do!” In our defense, it isn’t easy sorting this hurricane of press releases, PR bullshit, speculation, trailers, screens, and boob jokes into something intelligible and interesting.Nevertheless, we are far from the most crapped on people in the games industry. Apologies if we offend anyone who does these jobs – remember, we’re not hating, we’re just saying. 7. Game Tester Sounds brilliant, doesn’t it? Get paid to play games all day – oh, and it’s totally a stepping stone into the games industry. At least, that’s what they tellyou -our experience with game testing, we’ve found the opposite is true, at least in regards to wages. In all seriousness, game testers have to get up and physically walk down to a meeting room to get their wannabe employer to pay them for the time they’ll spend in the office, plus a bus ride home. We can’t imagine any other sane profession where you can literally see someone doing this – we’re not saying it’s perfect, but at least it is a preferable option to having to stand in line and deal with your actual company’s version of hiring. 4.
