Just going onto what I said earlier, "beta testing" isn't too much like "QA testing".

Like Kodo said, you'll be doing amazingly dull things.

Did you have any really annoying missions or things to do in the other GTA games?
Imagine doing it a thousand times, from 9am to 6pm.

Tester: "This mission doesn't appear buggy."
Programmer: "Doesn't appear? Play it again, double check"
Tester: "All done, no bugs."
Programmer: "Okay, try changing X to Y and play again. Twice."
Tester: "Works."
Programmer: "Y to Z. Repeat"
Tester: "Bug found."
Programmer: "Reproduce."
Tester: "Reproduced."
Programmer: "Documentate"

Great! A bug! This is really bad news for you. It means you need to sit around for a few hours going very slowly in the game and writing down what bug group it is in (e.g. A, B, C, D, F), write a few pages on how to get to it, what you believe causes it, and include information you may think that can prevent it.

By time GTA IV comes out, you won't want to touch any GTA game
