IAmA Video Game Tester, AMA!
I have been testing video games (Quality Assurance, QA for short) for quite a few years now, to give you an idea - 6th Gen Consoles were still kicking around the office.
I have worked in just about every sort of QA environment: Outsourced and insourced 3rd Party QA, with the publisher (Pub QA) and with the developer (Dev QA).
I have worked on AAA titles, indie games, live games with regular updates, Early Access titles, amazing games, shitty games, games that got canceled. I have worked on most genres of games on almost every gen 7 & 8 platform.
There are a bunch of misconceptions about QA, understandably some from people not in the industry - but there are actually a bunch of misconceptions from people who want to start testing, junior testers and sometimes even senior testers.
Ask Me Anything!
Note: NDAs (Non-disclosure agreements) do not allow me to mention information that is not already known by the general public. I will also not be stating any information that could reveal who I am (AMAs do not look very good on Resumes in the QA world)
