Video Game Tester

Ok so, I am looking to become a video game tester (I don't care at all that the pay in that job is minimum as all I have a great deal of love for video games) but, anyway, I am having no such luck in finding any website where I can apply for that job. The only websites I keep coming across are website that want me to pay money for an subscription, and I was wondering should I trust these websites that promise to help me get a job in that field if I pay them? Also I live the New York and was wondering does anyone know whether or not there are any jobs in video game tester in the New York area?
Please help with any information at all; thanks!

Below is a link to a list of video game developers. Write up a good quality resume and send it out to them. Communication skills are important so make it look good. They can't deal with, "The ringey-dingey thingy..." :-)

In the realm of "dream jobs," video game tester ranks pretty highly for a significant number of people.

But if you dream of endless days spent playing your favorite video games, you'll be sorely disappointed.

As an unnamed video game tester explained during a recent Reddit AMA, success as a QA tester in the video game industry means taking your job seriously and meeting high expectations.

The tester, who goes by the user name HigherCalibur, said he's been working in the industry as a quality assurance tester for about 10 years, and during his time he's worked for several different companies and has been credited on more than 30 game titles.

Here are some questions he answered during the live chat that provide a fascinating glimpse into the world of video game testing.
