First, there are companies that need people of all skill levels, ages, and walks of life to test out their new video games that have either been recently released, or have never been released before. This is good news because you can actually get paid to do this and all you have to do is play the game and report back to them. Plus if you do a good job they will throw you more and more work over time.
Second, you can actually make a full time income testing out video games. There are not many video game jobs out there that you can make a good amount of income at unless you design the games, but testing them will allow you to make quite a bit of money doing something you would be doing anyway. There are people that spend 8 or more hours a day just playing video games and they get paid to do it.
Last, you will be able to brag to all of your friends because you will get to test games that have not even hit the market place yet. They will let you test games that are still in development and may or may not ever hit the market. This is awesome because not only do you get paid, but you also will most likely get to keep a copy of the game for yourself as well.
