Beta testing used to be a way to play a relatively stable, bug-free game before anyone else. That was back when developers actually spent money to in-house test their stuff before beta.

Now… Beta really means alpha, and that you're getting a bug-filled, unfinished crapfest. Unless you have some financial interest in the game itself, or really want to be in the game industry, I really don't understand why anyone would want to beta test in today's day and age. That is, outside of an MMO, in which case the early access would give you a significant advantage over others when the game launches.
