The Different Types of Gamers

In today’s feature we’re delving into the stereotypical gamer and how the media’s perception may not always be 100% correct. (FIFA 13, Grand Theft Auto IV, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Before reading the article my glance revealed no fanboy category. How refreshing.

We'r all gamers why label people

lol talk about pigeon holing people, and categorizing them in typical nerdy fashion into categories that hardly include all gamers, but rather takes every type of gamer he (the author) personally knows and fits them into his own stereotypes.

This would be a lot more interesting if there was some actual research behind it to give it some meat. Anyone ever heard of research using anecdotal evidence? Look it up.

By reading this I guess I'm a "interested gamer/core gamer". I can dig that, I usually move to my on rhythm anyway. Never swayed by what the masses play, but what I'm interested in instead.

Vertical Slice did a psychological test to reveal what kind of gamer people were, it was pretty interesting...

I fit into multiple groups depending on my mood how I want to game.

Everything isn't so simple. I think the vast majority of gamers are the same.

The differences are the same differences in people everywhere. Games and other objects don't change people...People are the same.

EX: The same douche who is cocky and arrogant and talks crap in real life, is the same guy who does it online.

The Nice guy who just likes to get along with people and enjoy the game, will be somebody you'd rather play an online game with because they are there to have fun and not to ruin other people's fun.

Many people actually change a lot their attitude in games and online .

Plenty otherwise nice people let go , stop holding back and vent their frustration there .

And plenty asocial folks can actually be very sociable online
