Which Gamer Stereotype Are You? Gaming Personalities Defined

Gamers Nexus: "Sometimes, despite the stigma associated with them, it's fun to figure out which stereotype is linked to our gaming play styles. Besides being sort of fun and self-indulgent, it's also a fantastic way of figuring out which games you might like and which you're likely to get bored of rapidly." (Culture, Dev)

im the guy who destroys everything then feel sorry and create :D
Lelldorianx  +   1413d ago
I think I'm probably a mix of the Creator and Explorer.

i am the stingy one... every time i play RPG i never use large potions to heal myself.. i dunno what i'm saving those huge potions for. he he heh... q;

and i don't whore myself for trophies... i just finish the game at my own pace which also means i'm way below the average gamers when it comes to gaming.

I seem to be a mix of most oddly enough, I explore a lot, create a lot, and endlessly horde my potions as if I expect the four horsemen to demand a fight at some point. I will never understand what my 99 mega-elixirs were preparing me for back on the PS1

I am the extremist rpg fan. My fav series is FF.

I love FF, but it really hurts to see the series go down the toilet.

Oh why oh why has Yoichi Wada not been assassinated by a ninja yet?

Better...why didnt he commit Hara-Kiri for the shame he brought to the series.

That man has no honour...

All of the above.
Lelldorianx  +   1413d ago
Haha, so just all around "gamer," huh? Fair enough!
Velox  +   1413d ago
Definitely destroyer. I murder those casuals!
TrendyGamers  +   1413d ago
Same here.
TheGOODKyle  +   1413d ago
Explorer and destroyer definitely. Probably why I like Kingdom Hearts as much as I do x.x
Ranma1  +   1413d ago
I am the type of gamer who complains a lot, even about the smallest of things....i want my favourite series of all time (Final Fantasy) to be perfect....right now its far from that
Lelldorianx  +   1413d ago
Hehe, the senile, critical gamer? Nothing wrong with that.
Lelldorianx  +   1413d ago
I just added the 'Adventurer' category based on many of the answers here. I think that about covers it for those who are a mix of destroyers and story-lovers!
ssb3173  +   1413d ago
All of the above

I'd say that I am the UBERPWNER personality. Wait, you should add that one on there and publicly recognize me as the only UBERPWNER in the world
Velox  +   1413d ago
I don't always uberpwn, but when I do, it's in caps.

I took these tests for GamerDNA a while ago :p
CandyCaptain  +   1413d ago
Yeah, they got me pegged under Adventurer. My brother often looks at me wondering how the heck I entertain myself so long with one game like I do! He I'd say is a Destroyer, along with my younger bro. While my oldest brother I wanna say is almost a casual lol.

they forgot adhd gamer.. you find them playing only cod/halo series(sometimes they play battlefield 3 just because that youtube video looked neat or they heard someone at school say how COOL it is). They are good at nothing yet play for hours everyday. They make up the majority of fps gamers and regardless of how many times they go 0 - 20, dragging down the entire team with them, they will keep coming back.

The mindless sloth adhd gamer. you can always count on their selfish behavior to ruin you gaming experience.

I know exactly who you're talking about -- they're the very same people that think they're the biggest pros on the server, but they consistently suck and accuse others of being hackers.
digitaleraser  +   1412d ago
I'd been thinking of writing about this kind of topic as well...I think instead of the false Hardcore/Casual dichotomy, we should be focusing on breaking things down to more specific subgroups like this (which I wouldn't call "stereotypes," but rather "gaming styles."
gazgriff2k12  +   1412d ago
hardcore with time for a little casual
Tonester925  +   1412d ago
100% Adventurer. I could just walk around Skyrim all day. Countless hours lol
Venjense  +   1412d ago
I guess adventurer.
Sugreev2001  +   1412d ago
I guess I'm an Adventurer,Destroyer and Thinker.
