    TSAE - Minigamer
    6 Twitch-Fluid, 6 Simple-Complex, 5 Planning-Acting and 9 Entertainment-Difficulty!
    The Minigamer is not a euphemism for a bad gamer or a short gamer. TSAE's live the heat of the moment, they like games that are fast, straightforward, and downright fun. Quick-Time Events are a favorite staple of a TSAE's game collection. Their fast fingers and even faster reflexes demand actions that happen in the flash of a second, but they hate taking time to memorize combos. For Minigamers, it's all about being at the right place at the right time, but it's okay to mess up once and a while. They play for fun, but they totally pwn everyone in party games! They are not to be mistaken for casual gamers, Minigamers have as much devotion and skill as any other, it just happens that their skills are best suited to the quick and dirty style of minigames.

    Games TSAE's like: Mario Party, Wario Ware, Indigo Prophecy



    TWITCH
    You have a strong twitch reflex, which means that your muscles tend to move in very quick jerky movements. This makes you especially adept to action games, since they rely on that very same jerky motion and quick button pressing. You probably beat the pants off of others in minigames using the "tap A to run" mechanism, and you hold your own even in fighting games that you've never played because you can execute the moves very quickly. Unfortunately, you also have trouble with games that require precision movements like shooting games. Your thumbs are just too fast and that little analog stick is so sensitive! And games that require precise timings like the Mario Bros 3 extra life slider give you trouble as well.


    SIMPLE
    You remember the good old days, when Atari was cutting edge with a joystick and ONE BUTTON. This is not to say that you can't handle more complex controls and concepts, but you prefer that your games didn't require half a novel's worth of instructions. You do best when all the controls and options are right at your fingertips. You probably feel right at home with older games because they inherently have less to work with. Newer games either frustrate you with too many buttons and options, or they just annoy you because there are simpler ways to climb a ladder than jumping on, holding L, and then pushing forward.


    ACTING
    In the virtual world, who needs a plan when you can just hit the reset button? You play things by ear, and when the shit hits the fan, you hit the bricks. You're the one who survives the zombie onslaught with only a knife. You're the one who captures the flag long after the rest of your team was killed. You're also the one who can never be relied upon. Because you're never really prepared, you could die during a crucial moment when everyone else has that extra healing potion left. Or during an important mission you fail because you forgot to get the security passcard to get in the base undetected. You play the biggest risk and you reap the results.


    ENTERTAINMENT
    You play mostly for the fun of the game. Whether its the story, the gameplay, or just the overall feel of the game, something about it draws you in. You'll find yourself popping a game in years after you completed it to revisit the characters, locales, and gameplay. You probably own at least a few game soundtracks and maybe a few posters. You appreciate games as art and a way to pass the time. You may also play competitively (either professionally or amateur) but that's not the reason you'll be playing them 40 years from now.

    FCPE - Role Playing Gamer
    2 Twitch-Fluid, 3 Simple-Complex, 8 Planning-Acting and 8 Entertainment-Difficulty!

    FCPE - Role Playing Gamer

    In stark contrast to the Action Gamer (TSAD) is the Role Player. FCPE's lack the reflexes or twitchy demeanor, but they excel in other areas. They handle complex menus, maps, and concepts very well, and they utilize them in extremely effective ways. Strategy is the name of the game for FCPE's. They're not looking for a quick fix of rapid violence, they prefer to exploit a weakness, find a key, or unlock a new path. For Role Players, the game itself is as enjoyable as actually playing it.

    Games FCPE's like: Tactics Ogre, Final Fantasy, Lost Odyssey, Pokémon


    FLUID
    You have very subtle, smooth movements. Your muscles stay relaxed, even in tense situations. This makes you ideal for games where you have to perform precise movements under pressure such as shooters and racing games. Your thumbs glide over the controller and you are probably one the better shots on your team in Call of Duty or even can do fairly well in a racing game you've never played because you don't make the car spin out of control. But you also don't do as well with games that require a faster touch. Most hardcore action games and fighting games will give you a hard time because the other players can input the moves a lot faster than you can. And you probably can't tap the button fast enough to blow up your balloon in Mario Party.

    COMPLEX
    The more the better is your motto. You want your games to be a nuanced and varied as you are. You don't mind shuffling through an extra menu or two or learning a couple more combos. If it will add depth to the game and give you more freedom, bring it on! You've probably debated on more than one occasion why can't Pokemon have more than four moves at a time. Or you've committed yourself to learning Zangeif's entire moveset, just to be that much better for the next match. You enjoy managing money, stats and equipment, making your team or army or city bigger, better, and badder. And you're always looking for a new way to complete a task. You also tend to lose interest or generally have trouble with simpler games, as you become frustrated or confused by the lack of things in your control.

    PLANNING
    When it comes to the actual act of playing, you're a no-frills flawless machine. It's a good thing that video game characters don't actually carry all the stuff in your inventory, because they'd probably suffocate underneath it all! You've got your armies all highly trained and equipped with rocket launchers and jeeps with gatling guns. You didn't even have to be in the same room as your PS2 to finish the final boss of Final Fantasy XII. You're prepared for anything because you've got it all figured out ahead of time. But even the best plans backfire sometimes and that's where your weakness shines through. You're so used to having enough healing potions that when you actually run out you're a sitting duck.

    Not surprised.

    Didn't recognize (or never played for wasn't interested in) most of the games that were in the last few questions asking me to pick my favorite from among a set of four of them.... Otherwise most questions were sorta arbitrary for me to answer, since either both or neither of the options described me.

    The question(s) about online games were inapplicable to me. I don't and won't play online games (they present zero if not negative value to me).

    Call of Duty...

    FSPE - Racer
    4 Twitch-Fluid, 6 Simple-Complex, 9 Planning-Acting and 9 Entertainment-Difficulty!

    FSPE's thrive on the asphalt. Racing games require a finesse and foresight that is not very foreign to FSPE's They have a steady hand and good planning abilities which allows them to telegraph and accommodate the racetrack accordingly. They are excellent at choosing when to pass an opponent and can easily handle it when they are wrong and lose control. They have little care or time to learn complex controls; stop and go are the only things they need to know. Above all, FSPE's play for the thrill of the race, especially since some games such as Driver and Burnout have no clear cut winner.

    Games FSPE's like: Gran Turismo, Driver, Burnout, MotoStorm

    ok... i do tend to be good at racing games, so i like them, but i've never considered them my preferred. the idea of racing & racing+stunt games excites me though. i also know that i usually hate 1st person shooters cuz they scare me (lol) and the 360 degrees, up-down perspective shit really gets on my nerves. i don't wanna be running and sliding around while looking in every fucking direction, while deciding how i'm going to kill something between 50 options and having to eat shit to stay healthy and reload every 5 minutes. (i don't play enough & i'm not a big gamer.)

    my fav games are super mario world, the sims (PC (i think i prefer 2 and 3 for diff reasons)), & marvel VS capcom 2. i also used to play worms armageddon a lot and loved it.

    i wish i could play more.

    TCPD - Real-Time Strategist

    6 Twitch-Fluid, 5 Simple-Complex, 6 Planning-Acting and 5 Entertainment-Difficulty!

    TCPD - Real-Time Strategist

    In sex and RTS it's not about how big it is, it's how you use it. The Real-Time Strategist has a sharp mind and some fast fingers (sexual innuendo not intended) . They prefer games that encourage a good plan over a headstrong blitz, but they still enjoy a sense of urgency and faster pace. TCPD's aren't discouraged by complex menus or controls and they enjoy the many options it opens to them to concoct the perfect plan. They also love the thrill of deciding under pressure and that's where the real-time element comes in. TCPD's don't play for fun, they play for keeps and the challenge of a good RTS can easily make up for flimsy aesthetics.



    Games TCPD's like: Starcraft, Command and Conquer, Sim City, Sid Meier's Civilization, Black and White

But even the best plans backfire sometimes and that's where your weakness shines through. You're so used to having enough healing potions that when you actually run out you're a sitting duck.



    DIFFICULTY

    You play mostly for the challenge. You thrive on the idea that you are defeating an enemy or piloting a jet. As the game presents new challenges, you knock them down and the ones you can't pass drive you to become a better player and overcome them. You probably have played tournaments before and you enjoy friendly competition. You probably one more than one strategy guide and maybe even are on a forum or part of a clan dedicated to your favorite game. You probably also love the art and music and design of video games but the only reason you might pop in GoldenEye is because some old pals come over and you all want to start up a deathmatch and see who's still got it.
    Twitch:
    I'm not sure. The point about aiming in shooters is more or less true i suppose though i never really thought about it that way... I'm no sniper... I typically adopt more close range strategies that don't require so much precision. But if I focus I can aim reasonably well...It's just not natural to me.

    Complex:
    Actually i have a strong distaste for the concept of long combos in fighting games. I don't like the idea that there's a set of buttons that if you memorize the sequence you can effectively defeat the opponent immediately. I prefer to learn all the basic moves and put them together more spontaneously.


    Planning:
    I do like to plan ahead...but not in super specific ways.

    Difficult:
    I am competitive with games. But most of that paragraph isn't true. I don't like strategy guides, that's for sure.
    Violence is never the right answer, unless used against heathens and monsters.
