Only4Gamers


Only4Gamers is a lifetime membership website that provides both a downloadable guide as well as live information on the members website that is updated weekly. There are no renewal fees; once you are a member, you are a member for life.

The fundamentals of becoming a video game tester are covered in the downloadable guide. This guide is one of the few decent ones available, in that it covers precisely what you need to know to break into the field.

Where Only4Gamers really proves itself to be one of the real gems in game tester guides and websites is that in the members only section of the website, there are several mini courses that will guide you step by step through the process of landing your first game testing job.

As well, in order to help you understand the big picture, a Flowchart is provided to members that summarizes the content of the mini courses and allows users to visualize instantly the steps and the sequences you need to take in order to land your first job.

Active game testing job listings are available to members - an updated list of active jobs is provided to members on a daily basis of specific game testing jobs that you can apply for. At any given time, there are over 100 jobs posted, with up to 20 new jobs added on a weekly basis.

Additionally, members have access to current game company employment pages, providing contact information to dozens of companies actively recruiting game testers. This is updated weekly as well.

Finally, several bonuses are included as part of your membership, such as cheats, codes, video game discounts and a guide on how to actually test video games.

Guarantee

Only4Gamers comes with an 8 week, unconditional money back guarantee.

Summary

Only4Gamers provides excellent quality and value. It is both a guide and a membership website, providing the knowledge on how to break into the industry along with current job listings and company employment information. Membership is, for now, for life, but with the increasing popularity of the website, it is possible that Only4Gamers will be forced to begin charging a monthly fee to new members. Existing members would of course be exempt from this, so now is definitely the time to join if your are at all interested in the help Only4Gamers can provide in landing a video game testing job.
