    There's a stupid thing involved. You can design games then playtest them.

    Play testing games seriously sucks - most play testers basically run into every wall, pick up every item, open every door, etc... - the designers themselves actually do the FUN play testing where they check whether a certain thing they just set up works right, like quickly going through a quest sequence in Skyrim.

    I am a video games designer, and doing the testing is doing the same level over and over and over and over again, I'd rather design them and implement my own things in. It's great to be a designer.

    I've always dreamed about making my own game and just wish I could just have my ideas instantly translate into the game, but that's not possible so I'll go with the next best thing.

    In real life, testing video games sucks, you have to do the stupidest crap a thousand times over and never really enjoy the game, it never said play, it said test, so might as well design.

    Designing is too hard, but testing gives you some credit, you get the same money (Read the title), less work, you get to TEST the video game before it's out,and you get a free copy of the game!

    IMO designing gets more credit than testing. I know WAY more designers than tester
