What is Your Video Gamer Profile?

Recommended Posts

Quantic Foundry has a test to determine what type of video game player you are.  You can take the test here.  My results can be found here.  I'm a mix of Bard and Architect, which is interesting, but also extremely accurate.  The test provides example video games for each video game player type.  The first example video game for Bard?  City of Heroes.

I'm glad to see @Zulgeek get a different response or I was going to start to wonder if CoH players just tend to default to bard/bard is the default answer. xD

Don't worry, I got Gladiator as mine with a side of Acrobat.  I love CoH for sure, but it seems i'm also in the neighborhood of action and skill based games.  It says I should be playing Cuphead and Doom 2016 instead.

Yup, makes sense. Haven't seen this site in ages and I've pretty much played (still own) most of the applicable recommendations. 😛

A bounty hunter who announces themselves when they enter a room?

Bard / Skirmisher. Guess slightly more metal than folk.

Never sure about these surveys, but...

...yeah, that tracks 😁

WAKE UP YA MISCREANTS AND... HEY, GET YOUR OWN DAMN SIGNATURE.

Look out for me being generally cool, stylish and funny (delete as applicable) on Excelsior.

Apparently I’m a Bard/Gardener… a Bardener. I expected to get Architect, though.

 

Most of the recommendations are Sims 3 and Sims 4. Good thing Sims 4 is about to go free-to-play soon. All I want to do there is build houses, honestly. And if someone could make a game where all we do is build spaceships of every and any conceivable configuration, I’d be all over that. Considering how many alts I make in CoH, this is unsurprising.

Cool test. I'm currently on mobile so apologies in advance for the horribly scaled pics.

This test pretty much hit the nail on the head. I'm not a stickler for immersion through storytelling as much as I am through gameplay. I don't care about being told I live in your world. I want to feel it through how I interact with it. And I really like getting super strong. Reflects in some of my favorite games, too; Dark Souls (and its ilk), Fable, Phantasy Star Online, Monster Hunter, City of Heroes...

 

Funnily enough, the #1 game recommendation for me is Phantasy Star Online 2, the first PS game I have yet to touch thanks to Sega's gross mishandling of it.

 

Thanks for sharing the quiz!

Mainly on Excelsior. Find me in game @Spaghetti Betty.

Curiously, the work filters allow CoH Homecoming but ban the Quantic test, so I took it on my phone. 

 

Apparently, I'm Samwise Gamgee.  "...there's some good in this world...and it's worth fighting for."

 

Bard/Gardener

 

Bard: "Playing a part in a Grand Story"

Gardener: "Quiet, Relaxing Task Completion"

 

Gamer Motivation Profile: Calm, Spontaneous, Grounded, Creative

 

Highest marks, 89% in the Creativity Components.  I'm actually not surprised.  I was an art minor in college, and I'm always drawn to the parts of games where the most creativity can take place: costume design, base/housing design, etc.

 

Action Components, 18%, I am surprised at.  Once in the fray, I tend to fight very aggressively.  It's especially true when pugging in CoH, though I tend to play more defensively and strategically when soloing, like taking on a nest of Sentinels in No Man's Sky.  Perhaps that is what the test picked up on.
