What does a video game tester do?

A video game tester makes sure a video game is user-friendly and bug-free before it's released. A QA tester determines any technical issues, while playtesters focus more on providing feedback for user experience and playability. Video game testers are often assigned specific aspects of a game to test, sharing their findings via detailed reports that flag any errors or issues.
