Do you know what is the best thing that got employes at Ubisoft??
They can play all early\beta\alpha versions of games that were never released to public :D

That's not how game development works, lol. Playtesters are the ones who get to test the unfinished versions of games for debugging and feedback purposes and trust me, it's not as fun as it sounds. Games still in development mostly resemble Big Rigs (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sR3a0gixfwI) rather than an awesome gaming experience: it means you'll be running through walls like they aren't there, NPCs don't act like they're supposed to, flickering textures everywhere, graphics look shoddy and the game will constantly crash on you for no apparent reason. And you're the one who deliberately has to go out of their way in order to break the game. That's what playtesting is for: checking which features and actions within the game might cause it to crash or act weirdly.

Very true. Your post reminded me of this:

There was a Ubisoft video on Youtube that I can't find where this play tester was talking about an upcoming game. About half of it was a rant on how it sucked to be a play tester. He had to do things like renting houses about 2000 times, and another 2000 when they changed one small feature. It sucks, I tell you.
