How to... respond to ads in games

No matter how you feel about them, most games have ads, so you will probably see ads in the games you playtest as well. Please keep in mind that playtesting means responding to the entire game experience and accepting that ads will appear.

It’s OK to state your opinion on the ads or the way they’re used - for example if they're affecting your enjoyment of a game due to frequency or length - but then please move on and do not get stuck on this point.

It is best to go into all playtests with an unbiased view, so do talk about what you are seeing in terms of your gaming experience in the moment. We want to hear about the game you are playtesting and not your experience of ads in games in general.

Make sure that you continue the playtest and think aloud while playing the game itself, as the developers want your thoughts on this specifically. This is the key part of playtesting, so ensure that you do this in order to be eligible for the rewards.
