Title: What kind of online gamer are you?
Post by: Dudemaster on February 23, 2010, 06:59:37 PM

Might pehaps be too MMORPG-focused

Generally, in strategy games, I am a more conservative sort  of player, which is why I love the Total War series. I prefer to sit back, build up my economy, get all the cool upgrades, then get a relatively small but expensive highly ranked/upgraded army to well, own everyone. Although that strategy sometimes falls apart, I have noticed it works in most strategy games I have played. And very well, too, although still, I can only be general in this sort of subject.

Other types of games have many different variations... way too many to list, or create a general strategy for.

You forgot about the goof-off (doesn't nothing whatso ever to do with game, and never levels)

What happened to the good-old fashioned Diamond?  Or achiever?

Note these:

Spade- Discoverer.
Diamond - Achiever.
Heart - Socialerer.
Club - Beateruper.

Remember those sigs in FoL?

I hated that.

I'm guessing "Forums of Loathing". :P

I know you said MMORPG focused, but I COULD associate a few options with other games.. Like.. Console games, like Call of Duty? ;P

'Cos if it's for Call of Duty and stuff, I'm a team player. I know that's not exactly a choice, but yeah. :D I sacrifice my kill streak / life to help my team win. Of course, when I'm in Free for All, I'm aggressive. :D But this is just call of duty.
My style is different depending on the game -- In call of duty, I'm normally 100% team player. :D

But there are a few other choices that I could associate with other games that aren't MMORPG.

So.. Yeah. :)

Three more types added!

  • The purist - and yes, I am aware that pure in RuneScape terms is one who levels
  • The aggressor (thanks Hayden, I forgot this very important type of online gamer)
  • The goof-off(thanks, marsgreekgod)

Following Hayden's comment, I renamed 'The Leader' to 'The Team-Player'. Thanks.

Looks like most of you are patient, not power-hungry like me, which makes you more than fit to play stealth games and most tactical shooters. :)

The difference between the economists and the conservatives (n strategy games, at least) is that often in a strategy game, I spend time collecting money to buy upgrades for the sake of it. I don't like suffering attacks to my kingdom which happen over time, and I know I can often beat the enemy without all those upgrades, but I just can't help it, dammit.

I don't think you'd be on this forum if you were part of the 'great unwashed'... which is totally fine, of course.

Hey! I took a shower....once... I remember my hair got wet! It was horrible!

But yeah, I am completely turned off by online games, particularly MMORPGs (just typing it hurts). I'm also allergic to WoW, I don't mind discussing single player games with other fans, but don't play well with others.  :-\

In most games I make my own meta-game, especially if I'm not very good at the main game.

ie: COD: Modern Warfare 2 - 90% percent of my kills are with riot shields.

ie: Garrysmod: Survival - I chop down all of the trees in the map, and sell the seeds for other resources.

LOL, I agree with you completely, because that's what I'm like in Savage as well! I almost always get the 'Biggest MMORPG Fan' award (think of it as a mini-achievement you earn at the end of each game) because I spend the first half an hour of the game or so killing monkeys an other NPCs!
