A games tester is someone who works for video game production companies to thoroughly test video games before the final version is released to the public.
During gameplay, the tester attempts to discover hidden bugs by attempting every possible move or decision a player might make during normal gameplay.
The tester may even attempt to do things within the game that an average player might not do, such as trying to get stuck in a wall or obstruction within the game. Once the character is stuck, the player is often unable to free the character, making further gameplay impossible.
