I tried to play multiplayer twice. Never took more than 10 minutes before I left the game and started playing the single player again.

Yeah, I'm the white knight in this one.

I don't really fall into any of these categories. I'm more like the rager and the absorptionist. Meaning I'm kinda like the reader in the since that I love playing games for the stories and being sucked into that world, but I hate listening to npc's whine and I might just turn the game off if they talk for too long. On the other hand, since I pick up games of any genre and suck at all of them I am very highly prone to just rage quit if I die more than 7 times. I like playing with people, but since I'm not a very good player others would rather be with someone who can hold their own.

@ @kirill1 I believe they fall in the Analyst category? A few parts back?

The Completionist/The Reader/The Builder/The Analyst/The Hoarder/The Min-Maxer/The Character Builder/The White Knight/(slightly)The Apologist

Avatar image for DOOMDUDEGUY

I'm a speed runner, exterminator, introvert, ghost, difficulty snob, and apologist. I think I should go to hell, but I like playing video games.

Avatar image for Chrystsown

I definitely smack of The Reader, The White Knight and The Extrovert. I love multiplayer in FPS games, but I stick to story in RPG's and I ALWAYS play good, helping as many as I can.

Avatar image for incrediblmullet

I think they have probably missed two gamer types.

The cheater - one of those people who likes input cheats and cheats like those found in 007 Goldeneye (large heads, all weaons etc..)

The Sports Nut - one who plays only sports games

Apologists... the most annoying of all gamer types. lol

Ghost/Exterminator/White Knight/Character Builder

Avatar image for TDC72

I am character builder and apologist but mostly character builder

Avatar image for pidow

I mix it up, except for apologist , builder.

Avatar image for waterhornet

LOVE character building so that's a category I totally fit into. Most times I play a White Knight but when I get tired of that or finish an RPG as a good character I inevitably play again as supremely evil just to get a taste of the dark side. Variety is the spice of life. And I'm mostly an apologist only because if a game becomes a series and I like the story I want to see it all the way through. Dragon Age 2 comes to mind...the game wasn't that great and had some design choices I didn't understand or even like but I liked the story in the first game and I need to know how the whole series ends!

A mix of everything except the apologist and reader.

White Knight.

Ok, to sum it all up he's what I am.

Completionist Extrovert Hoarder White Knight.

I left out the second group of gamer types since I really didn't fall into all one of those.

Avatar image for Pawfalcon

Yup, white knight Completionist w/. elements of most others. Guess thats all of the cute gamer chick (I don't remember seeing her in reviews and thats what I mostly watch), oh well.

Someone who likes Single Player, DRM-free, multi player Bots (anyone remember these?!!) and split-screen offline multi player games - sadly developers don't seem to care for old skool gamers like me any more. Thank God for Skyrim!

Avatar image for Orvell

@gamescottsman no, sadly, they seem to think that everyone wants to play online with others. I deal with others all the time, I play games to relax. I do like multiplayer sometimes, but I agree, it is much more fun when the person you are playing is in the room with you. I can't get into trash talking a person I don't know/see.

Avatar image for Orvell

@gamescottsman I also like getting beat by a person in person. If they are in the room, I want to play again, get a little revenge. If it is online I norm just turn the game off. I mean they could be a pro kicking my but, or worse yet a 10 year old girl, I don't know, and maybe don't want to, doh.

Unimpressed. I like how he dodged the video card question.

Avatar image for dannyatkinson

OK..... they didn't say anything about whether or not it is the Steam Box.

I hate articles like this.

Avatar image for wizardboyus

@dannyatkinson what did this have to do with the steam box..?

Avatar image for Red_lath

I'm a bit of everyone but I prefer to play more by the paragon line than the rebel/evil one jejeje

I suppose I enjoy every game and try to suck every possible way of and facet of a game.

Avatar image for Fembot_Eulogy

Character Builder, White Knight.

Avatar image for Leir_Bag

I'm an Introvert, Reader and Evil Doer first. Then Completionist (only on most favorite games), Ghost and Dificulty Snob secondly.

Don't look at me like that. Being an Evil Doer doesn't mean I'm a bad person, I just like to create Evil Characters, or characters that really dont give a crap to right or wrong.

What gamer am I? PC gaming master race gamer obviously. Anything else is unworthy of even simple text.

Avatar image for Itachi4019

lol im a potentialist, lol i have the potential to become all of the gamer types 'D

Avatar image for DBlaze889

Someone open my mind how he use stealth style to play COD. But how if you just play sport like football or basketball? Maybe he can be a complesionist?

Well, I'm a gamer and for me it's just a game. I can be whoever I wanna be.

Avatar image for RT-XD

How bad would it be if I said that I have major aspects of pretty much all these gamer types? Apart from maybe the ultimate evil doers, depending on the game itself (and possible what mood I'm in), I seem to see myself inheriting all these gamer types (that's all 15). I think this is one big sign telling me that I have to cut down on my gaming XD

Avatar image for Brakkyn

Call me a heretic, but I preferred the later Resident Evil gameplay style to the original. I'm not really a huge fan of the series but the gameplay of, i.e. Resident Evil 2 made me ill.

On topic, I consider myself the White Knight. There's already enough doom and gloom in most games to begin with. Take a stand and make a difference is my motto.

reader & charter builder present

White Knight, completionist, and exterminator.

Avatar image for PETERAKO

-a char builder huh? i am from this on a medium level provided i can make something special and not looking like a standard model in the game's world like in mass effect and elder scrolls oblivion

-not an evil doer, never

-and as you might have guessed, yes im a white knight

-an apologist can go and drown on their own piss. i will never encourage a publisher to make more crap games by placing money on it.
