In the mid-90s, Nintendo, Sega and Sony were locked in a heated battle for video game supremacy - at least, in North America. This was well before the Internet enabled public beta testing which meant game developers and publishers like Sega had to do all of their own testing.

Getting paid to play video games for a living in the mid-90s sounds like a dream job for many, but as this Sega Test "trainumentary" highlights, it's not quite as glamorous as you'd think. Don't believe me? How do 100-hour, caffeine-fueled work weeks sound?

This 30-minute nostalgic gem has it all - '90s hair, rad clothing, food trucks, smoke breaks and a sweet soundtrack (thanks, Pearl Jam). If you long for yesteryear, you'll no doubt love it… unless of course, you were a Nintendo gameplay counselor.
this is 30 minutes long, so enjoy.

I actually worked part time at Nintendo in the 90's and watched the game testers. Of course we all thought it would be so cool. After i watched that for about a half hour i thought i'd rather poke out my eyes with a hot fire poker.

Good thing we have early access and pub/devs who dont care anymore now. No need to waste time testing just sell it for full price and make people pay more for DLC/season pass to correct previous problems.

The older guys in the video are probably collecting social security now...

Gaming has changed a lot in the past 27 years

The montage of soda can's not opening brings back nightmares.

You guys are talking about the old cans where you pulled the tab and it actually came completely off the can? I vaguely remember those.
