Default Would you give up your life for a dream job?

Was looking through the Daily Mail the other day and came across this advert:

Hey, if the pay was great and you don't really have any commitments (wife, kids, etc.), then it seems it might be like a cool deal. It would be an adventure, cool job, new country to explore . . .

Nah. Wouldn't be worth it. I doubt there're many chicks in the Video Game Testing Complex.

Beta testing games that are most likely crap doesn't seem very interesting to me.
Like what, 1 out of every 300 games are good maybe?

That kind of a job would be great. But wouldn't be anything that I'd call a dreamjob.

That would be a dream job if your goals in life are to get fat and lazy.

Now a game designer.....that would be a great job.

I heard game testing sucks. You have to beat games within a certain time limit, or they fire you, so you have to constantly play. I don't know if this is true or not, but it's what I heard.
