hey do you know a website or do you know where i can find a game tester job cause am looking for a job but its i cant find one its hard for me can you help me out cause i really want to be a game tester
There are a lot of websites out there offering it all up, for a fee, to give you details about becoming a game tester. I would honestly recommend that you give a call to some of the actual game companies themselves, like EA or Blizzard, etc... And ask them about possible game testing positions and if they are available. With the size of many of the companies, you would more than likely work as a game tester at the company that actually makes the game, and not the company that publishes it (for example, Electronic Arts is a publisher more than a developer now)
First of all, make sure you are wanting a games tester job for the right reasons. Many people think you just play games all day and get paid... in fact the work is long hours, very repetitive, and you'll need to very accurately describe scenarios, bugs and reactions in game, relay that information to the dev team, then retest and compare the results...
You'll need 3 things to be a games tester. Firstly a passion for games, secondly an analytical mind which can work through different permutations and test every solution to a problem, and thirdly the ability to communicate that effectively - that means you need to be a clear and accurate writer.
If you think you have those skills then work up a resume (work experience, games experience, any writing you have done either paid or free, any game dev yuio have done either paid or free)
Try and buildup some authority and experience, writing a games blog can be a great idea, writing articles and submitting them to games portals or magazines, in fact anything which proves your passion for games and your communication skills... then package all that up together and start sending it to the QA departments of games dev companies.
THere are a bunch of websites offering information and services for helping people become a games tester, some are better than others. Most of them offer little more than an overview, some hints on putting together a resume, and contact details of some of the software houses, but some also offer some more in depth information and resources...

I tested games for a local company here in Florida. It was a really boring experience. You might think it's fun testing games but it really isn't.
