One of the ways to break into the gaming industry is to be a game tester. A large majority of people who broke in, came in as game testers. You play countless hours of the game, basically doing QA since the programmers’ time is more expensive and not as effective at QA’ing their own work.
What I find interesting about this job is that they are now doing this for mobile phones. Now that phones are more powerful than my first computer, which had some great games on it to my father’s dismay, the future is so bright for gaming in this arena.
