Gamer Testing Ground is an online membership site where you have the choice to sign up to a 6, 12 or 24 month subscription.
The reason for the membership site is because unlike other manuals you can buy online, the information at ‘Gamer Testing Ground’ is constantly updated with more resources and information being added.
This for me is one of the main reasons I recommend this site so highly. The material is fresh, up to date and constantly growing.
Once inside the membership site the navigation is very straight forward. Basically there is one long page that contains all the information and resources you need.
Instead of reading through a 20 page report, you literally scroll down through the material.
Here is the table of contents:
As I said, it reads just like a report but all the content is online and on one long page.
The first few parts of Gamer Testing Ground is all about what is involved with becoming a tester and the sort of person you need to be to get such a job.
A burning passion for playing video games with an eye for detail are 2 essential qualifications.
I liked the fact that there is a section dealing with Resume Building. It is often an overlooked part of becoming a video game tester but is certainly an area that you’ll need to work on.
Creating a quality resume will help you get noticed and there is a section listing a few good resources to post your resume to.
The main crux of your membership however will be taken up with Part 7 – Big Companies That Are Currently Hiring.
I must admit I have not seen a resource list as long and as comprehensive as this before.
And the good news is, the resource list is constantly being updated and added to, as more companies offer game tester jobs.
Just like every website and product I’ve reviewed, this is what you’re really paying for; a resource list that only contains quality and legitimate companies who recruit video game testers.
But because Gamer Testing Ground is online, the resource list and other useful info can be updated instantly.
The final few Parts to the membership site contain some extra money making resources playing video games, using Ebay and some places online where you can get some cool, free stuff!
