Shamus at Twenty Sided posted about an interesting personality test / ‘Player Satisfaction Model’ for video gamers.
I think that it would be interesting to see what friends that I regularly play with score, so please try it out and post your results as a comment 🙂
Here are my results;
Your BrainHex Class is Achiever.
You like collecting anything you can collect or doing everything you possibly can as well as finding strange and wonderful things or finding familiar things.
According to your results, there are few play experiences that you strongly dislike.
Your scores for each of the classes in this test were as follows:
Go to BrainHex.com to learn more about this player model, and the neurobiological research behind it.
Edit: Just a note on my results, I would generally agree with the rankings.
I do like exploring and collecting, although I would have expected the order of the top three to be Seeker – Mastermind – Achiever. This is why role-play games like Morrowind, Fallout 3, and The Saboteur, fascinate me, there is a huge landscape to explore, lots of things to find and collect, difficult vantage points to reach, etc.
I can understand why I got such a low Socialiser score. I do not think that I am a generally sociable person. But in multiplayer games I will usually play support classes, such as the medic in Team Fortress 2, or switch to a class to fill a gap in the team roster. In multiplayer I am usually focusing on helping the group rather than personal goals, which can lead to personal frustration when others are not playing as a team.
So, now you know a little more about what makes me tick 🙂
A friend of mine (thanks Ridley) linked From Me To You on facebook and asked the question ‘are these pictures cool or freaky?’ I quite like the effect, with my favourite probably being ‘Busy day in Manhattan‘.
Free Nature Sounds is a nice little 4-track mixer of nature sounds that lets you save compilations for yourself or others to listen to.
Rock, Paper, Scissors: where the computer will try to predict you 🙂
Famous Objects from Classic Movies was passed onto me by a facebook friend. Quite a challenging quiz 🙂
Now heres a nice little Flash game, reminiscent of a simplified sea section from Sid Meier’s Pirates Age of Wind.
What happens when Retro game pixels are unleashed upon New York?
