I'll let you know as soon as I get a job that pays me to drink beer and urinate.

My only answer to you is youtube. make videos daily and post them and slowly people will notice (make sure you have good quality and etc) and youtube can give you a job if you keep posting videos at a regular time schedule

Play video games, if there interesting upload them to youtube, if you get. More than 10000 watchs youtube should send you a paycheck which is a penny for each watch

Well I guess you could be a game tester or something along those lines, or a gaming YouTuber, ummm a mgl player?

Hi Brad,

To give you a serious answer unlike these other chumps:

1. Developers and publishers generally employ adults so they can work full time (and longer when overtime hits), so you're unlikely to get one at your age. My overall advice for QA would be: get experience however you can. Do testing work for mods or indie games or betas for MMORPGs and the alike. Also get a backup profession in case things don't work out.

2. Testers dont work from home, they'll be expected to be in the work place from nine to 5:30 every day.

Two other important things to say about going into QA:

First, I need to give a disclaimer. There are perks to the games industry, but it is not a wonderful land of happiness and sugar canes. It is an industry thats based on software development, with milestones, production processes, meetings, overtime and more drudgery. If you have the passion then go for it (nothing ventured, nothing gained) but I'd highly recommend which you have a backup and don't bet everything on getting in. Personally, things didn't work out for me after four years but I was able to fall back onto my IT skills.

Secondly, the most important thing to understand about QA is that it is -not- about playing games. It's about testing them. There's a world of difference.

Can you imagine yourself playing a buggy game that crashes every 30 minutes? And one thats a genre you don't enjoy? And is aimed at seven year-old kids? And could you do it ALL day long?

I actually had to test a magical horse riding game aimed at seven year old American girls. I also had to test a part of crap third-person action game that had thousands of bugs and which never got released.

Companies are searching for dedicated gamers who want to make a career in the industry, not somebody who is casually interested.

My advice: work hard at school, have a think about what else you may want to do and have a backup career. A lot of people use QA to get further into the industry, so that's an option - do you want to be an artist on a video game? A producer? A game designer? A programmer? There are certain courses at college and university which may interest you if so. For most of those, computer skills and some level of mathematics are important.
