The writers looks at how different personality types approach the hobby to determine what makes a ‘true’ gamer.
Very interesting read. Don't quite understand the "real" gamer thing,but I do enjoy the challenge of games. However if a game isn't fun then I probably won't play it. So I guess I play for fun with a hint of challenge thrown in.
a game isn't as fun if it isn't challenging imo. i need both..."real" gamer thing..isnt about challenge or fun...real gamers are passionate about gaming...we live and breath gaming. staying up until 3am to see a stream of e3...out in the snow until midnite to pick up a new game, or bathing in supermario bath soap imported from japan costing 59.99 type passion. lol thats the type of things "real" gamers do.
Winning is fun. Losing but coming close to winning is the next best outcome.
