Quiz: What type of gamer are you?


In this industry there are so many groups of gamers: hardcore, casual, retro, console, PC, etc. It’s become quite tough to single out a group that you’re part of, as we all enjoy various forms of gaming. The folks over at Quantic Foundry worked on a quiz that asks you questions that links to the different gaming subgroups. This is the breakdown:

  • Action: “Gamers with high Action scores are aggressive and like to jump in the fray and be surrounded by dramatic visuals and effects”
  • Mastery: “Gamers with high Mastery scores like challenging gaming experiences with strategic depth and complexity.”
  • Achievement: “Gamers with high Achievement scores are driven to accrue power, rare items, and collectibles, even if this means grinding for a while.”
  • Social: “Gamers with high Social scores enjoy interacting with other players, often regardless of whether they are collaborating or competing with them.”
  • Immersion: “Gamers with high Immersion scores want games with interesting narratives, characters, and settings so they can be deeply immersed in the alternate worlds created by games.”
  • Creativity: “Gamers with high Creativity scores are constantly experimenting with their game worlds and tailoring them with their own designs and customizations.”

Married to a gamer and she kicks my ass at most shooters. If the game is enjoyable I'll play it, no matter the format.
