Illustration for article titled iKotaku Asks/i: An Anonymous Video Game Tester

Curious about what it’s like to play video games for a living? Want to know how grueling—or how satisfying—it can be to work as a QA tester for major video game companies?

This afternoon we’ve got a professional video game tester here to answer your questions about all things QA. Our tester requested anonymity in the interest of protecting their career, but they’ve worked for multiple AAA publishers over the past few years and tested out several games including a major action-RPG and a big rhythm series. They’ve got plenty of insight and stories about what it’s like to get paid to play games all day.


The tester will be here for a few hours starting at 3pm ET. Ask whatever you’d like in the comments below.

This is Kotaku Asks, a weekly feature where we invite guests from the world of gaming to come answer burning questions from Kotaku readers. (If you think you’d be a good guest or have any requests for future guests, let us know.)
