This paper presents a testing and evaluation methodology for evolving pervasive gaming and multimedia systems. We introduce the Games@Large system, a complex gaming and multimedia architecture comprised of a multitude of elements: heterogeneous end user devices, wireless and wired network technologies, and various multimedia and gaming services. It enables an easy access to the offered services through the use of a versatile system architecture. Testing and evaluating the design takes central stage in the project through an iterative process which has a great impact on overall design course and the final product in terms of assuring a proper quality of service and usability of the system. A comprehensive testing and evaluation methodology for newly evolving entertainment systems is developed after the adaptation of the metrics, used for video game and multimedia evaluation
