So, I jumped the bandwagon with a bunch of other blogs and did the BrainHex quiz. It’s interesting how a few simple questions can come up with so much about you, and here’s what it came up with about me:
You like hanging around with people you trust and helping people as well as finding strange and wonderful things or finding familiar things.
And my Scores:
While the gist of it is right, I have to disagree with the whole survivor thing. I enjoy survival games, and being frightened doesn’t bug me too much, but games that are designed around making me scared are out of the question. I hate the feeling of being scared, but I have nothing against survival games in general. The catch-22 is the fact that the survival games out there usually have the best plots for stories, and I enjoy myself a good story every once in a while.
I do enjoy teaming up when playing a game, though. What’s interesting is that someone like Shamus, who started up the whole blog thing before I even considered it, doesn’t enjoy the social aspect in games as much as I do – To me, the social aspect is critical in a game, even if there are people who are being jerks. I deal with the tools that come up and move on – Sometimes I even enjoy messing with the people who behave childishly. Shamus seems to take such behavior with a “get off my lawn” approach – I bug the kids until they leave.
It’d be fun to see the numbers that these people are gathering. I hope they publish them so we can see how much diversity there is in the gaming community.
