I have a friend who work QA for microsoft game studios. He talked about the company like it was Jesus, but then regaled me with tales of walling against walls all day to detect any clipping issues. It's the absolute bottom rung of the games industry, generally reserved for the fast turnaround McDonald's applicants to think playing games all day would be awesome and almost nobody gets promoted out of it. The only way out is through the door you walked in through or the rope hanging from the ceiling in the bathroom.
