The morning of the all hands summon to the Blasted Lands, Aely went for a walk. The late fall air was clear and cool, and leaves crunched under their feet in the less-traveled parts of the streets. She and Roger took the long way around Old Town, south through Tanner Circle and down Bulwarks, across […]

Gamer Personality Types?

So I took the gamer personality type quiz over at Game Cafe

Based on my answers, I’m an:

ESAK

ESAK players often see the game world as a great stage, full of things to see and people to meet. They love teaming up with people to get to the hard-to-see places, and they relish unique experiences.

Breakdown: Achiever 40.00%, Explorer 93.33%, Killer 0.00%, Socializer 66.67%

Very Interesting…
The game that has the highest proportion of people like you (ESAK) is Entropia Universe. You chose which which is not amongst the top 10 choices for your type. Perhaps you’re a unique snowflake, or maybe we just don’t know enough people like you.

Overall – this is spot on. Though I do have a bit of PVP experience, I largely do it for the honor upgrades and not for any love of killing another player. (I generally feel that I get enough anger and stupidity in real life, and entering BG’s only ups my frustration level, not lowers it). I *love* the history and lore in Warcraft, especially when it means doing quests that have historically-involved storylines and let me go exploring around spiffy places.

I even love exploring spiffy places that I’ve already seen/done 10 times before! And I *particularly* love exploring when it means I get to do it with fun people that I know and like. Go go TRI! I’d definitely say that “seeing and killing new things” is tied for #1 with “cooperating with an awesome team” on my list of reasons why I raid.

So what kind of a gamer are you?

  1. SEKA players are usually very interested in the the ‘total experience’ of a virtual world–meeting other people and finding the unique places within it. They don’t care much for PVP or levelling, but meeting up with online friends to see new parts of the world is usually fun and exciting.

    Breakdown: Achiever 20.00%, Explorer 66.67%, Killer 33.33%, Socializer 80.00%

    Neato! Also, dead on.

    I had a problem answering a lot of these questions. A lot of time, my answer was “neither” and it wasn’t there :P But, I have to say it’s accurate.

  3. ESAK –

    Maybe that’s why my first toon swam around both continents, exploring.

  4. I’m an ESAK like you, apparently. I found some of the questions tough to answer, though, so I’m betting I’m actually somewhere on the cusp between that and something else.

    Yay for quizzes,

  5. SKAE

    SKAE players enjoy teamwork and cooperation, but feel that the main challenges of a virtual world come from the other players rather than the environment. They enjoy forming groups and alliances that will pit themselves against other players–and they gain the most satisfaction when they defeat organized groups of other players. When they aren’t playing against other players, they enjoy all of the social aspects of the game.

    Breakdown: Achiever 26.67%, Explorer 26.67%, Killer 60.00%, Socializer 86.67%

    Actually pretty accurate, much moreso before Burning Crusade came out. These days I’m closer to SAKE because I detest WoW PVP.

  6. AKSE

    AKSE players like to be the best-of-the-best at everything the game has to offer. They like to be high on the ladders of whatever metrics the game uses, including PVP. They like the best gear, the most power, and they love being the ‘first’ at something. Their prowess in PVP is generally supported by a large degree of understanding and posession of the best equipment and skills.

    Breakdown: Achiever 80.00%, Explorer 13.33%, Killer 66.67%, Socializer 40.00%


    Probably fitting since I was world first for Naxxramas, and was in the top guild in all of WoW pre-TBC. I’m an overachiever in the game :/

  7. I’m an SEAK.. sounds about right for me :)
