    I am a serious hodgepodge of "types" with my oldest and strongest roots in story driven gaming. This hodgepodge is a mixture of main ingredients such as adventure gamer and RPGer, with notes of completionist/achievement collector, and visceral enjoyer of captivating graphics. I have a very open mind to gaming platforms, though I prefer PC. My favorite games fall under many categories such as adventure/action-adventure (Wadjet Eye Games titles, The Book of Unwritten Tales, Journey), RPG (Dark Souls, Dragon Age), stealth (the original Thief games, Dishonored), and platformers (Donkey Kong Country, Yoshi's Island). Besides video and computer gaming I love PbP RPGing.

    I'm an RPG/Trophy whore. I've been playing Skyrim for nearly a year & not finished it yet. I intend at some point to have a level 251 (*every perk point*) character in full Daedric armor, who owns all the houses & homesteads & all the daedric artifacts, who's the head of every possible faction that's not mutually exclusive... you get the idea.

    Well, the test pens me as an RPG gamer, which is accurate. However, I am very much a Strategy gamer. I have all the Total Wars (those you can get post-DOS, anyways), I have StarCraft I and II all expansions. I have the C&C collection (disappointed with C&C 4, though). I enjoy playing Wargame and Civ V. I even got the source code for Multiwinia during the Humble Bundle. However, I am even more specific than that. I occupy a sub-class of Strategy gamer that is the Realism gamer. When it applies, I enjoy games to be realistic, particularly Historically so. That's why I enjoy Wargame and Total War games the most.

    Hybrid? Heck no! I am a genre unto myself! I am the ultimate game collector. I rebuy a game to get the special edition with enhanced graphics and extra goodies. I play indie games, sports games, retro games, DOS games, Japanese games, kids games, mobile games, etc. Played and beat Ace Combat 4 on Ace difficulty with an S ranking in every level. I've beaten Mass Effect more times than I can describe. If a game is worth the effort, I will replay it until I have unlocked EVERYTHING. If the achievements are impossible or pointless or the game is frustrating, I give up and play something else. Most of the impressiveness of my gaming is not skill, but time invested. I've beaten Ikaruga, Gradius V, and Radiant Silvergun because you unlock unlimited lives after a certain number of hours played. Most of my music collection is also video game music, and I went to see Video Games Live! when it came to my city (I also contributed to the KickStarter). I also write reviews for games on Amazon (I'm a top 2000 reviewer), and have a gaming blog. I think most modern games are garbage because most are, but I will spent hundreds of hours on a good game. Good graphics are nice, but some of the greatest games ever have 8 bit looking graphics. The greatest Indie game ever made is Iji, the greatest top down shooter is Ikaruga. The greatest RPG is Mass Effect series, and the the greatest system of all time is a toss-up between the Saturn and Dreamcast (and I own both and still play them). And yeah, I've bought a ton of sports games, just to try them out, then got rid of them when I realized they all stank. In The Zone (psx), Gameday (psx), Tecmo Superbowl (NES), Virtua Tennis (dreamcast). Now those were sports games!

    I wouldn't say I'm a weird hybrid, but I play pretty much every genre listed in that test. FPS's, JRPG's and Western RPG's, Indie Games, Story games, and well... I don't play sports games. Also, don't forget the hybrids like Borderlands and the newest Fallouts. I would honestly say that most gamers probably have a few favorite types of games.

    I'm an artsy Japanophile. I think the fact that I don't play a lot of sports games or FPS pretty much breaks the test for me. Games I've played this week: Bioshock Infinite, Papers Please, Animal Crossing, Suikoden II, Nimble Quest (iOS), Banana Kong (iOS). Only one of those has a gun, and only 3 have killing as a common theme (though I did shoot a dude in Papers Please tonight).

    I'm an action and rpg gamer.

    Take Arty as the foundation, add in some RPG and Action, and coat it with Achievement Whore and you'll have a marginal idea of me as a gamer. There is one type of gamer I think needs to be added to this though: the casual gamer. - You don't physically own any of the games you play - You've spent more last year on microtransactions than on actually buying games - A game isn't worth playing if it isn't connected to social media in some way... or smartphones - Completing a game makes no sense to you since they have no ending - Like the Mainstream gamer, you probably aren't reading this site

    RPG action gamer with a hint of whore on the side, most of the time I start out with only wanting to get the trophies that sound like fun, when that is done I figure that I might just get the rest of them. So maybe not a complete whore, you're going to have to put a few drinks in me for I go all the way.
  • closer2192 - September 7, 2013 9:03 a.m.

    The slideshow format just really killed this one for me.
  • The_Tingler - September 8, 2013 1:33 p.m.

    Agreed. Couldn't you have given us a survey to fill in instead? Some sort of automated thing? Took me ages to realise "You're an action gamer" wasn't a statement.
