Food critic sounds pretty fun tbh. :moon:

Edit: After a minute's thought - I retract. That's quite possibly the most boring thing you could ever do... Sit in a chair and watch people cook you food then give them feedback. Ew. Plus, I'm actually quite fussy. It'd be hell.. I'd have to force down lots of gross things like
.. mushrooms without pulling too awful of a face. Vomiting would-be a daily occurrence. Imagine if I got food poisoning too, no that wouldn't be fun at all, I dont know what I was initially thinking.

But are you essentially not playing a game though? No matter if its finding bugs or glitches fundamentally you are still playing a game and being paid to do so right?

Let's Play YouTuber, you just sit in your room and make videos and get paid just for playing games. Plus you don't have to solely focus on that job either. You can do other stuff you want to do on the side. Like learning a new language.

I wouldn't like to be a games tester since you have to actually do work when playing the games to find bugs/glitches. I'd rather be a full-time Twitch streamer that way people donate £ money to me to play the games I :heart:. No better job imo.

I am talking from experience, you would need to consistently play (e.g.) a specific level over and over again to find bugs, glitches or something. It would probably be a game that you are not familiar with. You don't just play the game from start to finish in a nice flow. You'd need to play as every character, every level, open up every single menu, chest, etc. Even stuff like jumping into walls to see if the character gets stuck. After all the testing, you need to write a pretty detailed description of every single problem that you encountered.

It is entertaining in some aspects I guess, but tiring and can get boring.

Exactly whilst the map editors are playing a higher level of minecraft your basically the gimp that gets to jump into a locked door for 30mins then write about it.
