Through the wonders of the Twitter I have been directed to an interesting little personality test of sorts for gamers. BrainHex is intended to help 'study the reasons why players enjoy different gaming experiences'. You just answer a couple of pages of short questions and they tell you what kind of gamer you are (Daredevil, Seeker, Mastermind etc).
I'm a Survivor-Seeker myself. Not reading those pages, I can tell you I like games that strike fear in me, make me panic or stressed at times. A few examples come to mind: the Thief series, System Shock 2, Silent Hill series (apparently a favourite amongst my type) and moments of other games like the subterranean bits in Stalker.
I'm also a big fan of games that make me feel wonder and amazement (lending to my Seeker nature). I've lost count of the times I've gotten horrible killed in WoW because I wandered off to look at the pretty forests. Or how many times I'd travel half-way across the map in Far Cry 2 just to watch the sun come up from my favourite spot.
So, enough about me. What's your type? And what examples of that behaviour do you see in your gaming habits?
Take the test!
