If you are anything like me, you probably lie awake at night wondering "Exactly what type of gamer am I?".

So, after many weeks of sleepless nights I assembled a team of super-scientists, psychologists and engineers*. Together we scoured the gaming world and spent months**, researching***, Testing**** and polishing***** the quiz you will find below.

So now, you will finally know the answer to the enduring question "What type of Gamer am I?".

An interesting****** result of our findings is that there is infact only four types of gamers. Any other types you can think of are, in fact, wrong*******.

It's a very simple quiz, based on one you may have found in magazines before (we discovered in our exhaustive research that these are the most accurate type of quiz in the world, who would have thought it?).

Under each question, there are four answers, all you have to do is select which answer is most like your way of thinking. If none of them are likely actions on your part, I would just guess randomly. That's scientific too. It's a very clever quiz like that.

At the end you will find out which Type of Gamer you are.


*No Scientists, Psychologists or Engineers were used. It was just me, and some Blue-Tack.

*** No research has been undertaken

**** No testing has been done

***** Nothing has been polished

****** Not interesting

******* Not Wrong

******** Nothing in this list has been astrisked 8 times

You find yourself in the corner of a plowed field, you need to exit via the opposing corner. Is your first thought:

a)The most efficient way to do this is diagonally, straight over to the exit.

b) Hmmm, I should probably go halfway, and then stop and look around in case I’m being followed.

c) If I stick to the hedge, I get more cover, plus moving across the furrows will cause my movement to become hindered.

d) A Plowed Field? In Spring? Must be some sort of trap, I’ll find another way round.

How to calculate your score.

It's simple did you score:

Mostly A's: You are a Eurogamer. Efficiant, Accurate, but slightly dull and stuffy. You love nothing more than moving cubes and calculating payback in 17 turns time.

Mostly B's: You are an Ameri-Trash Gamer. Guns, swords, spells. It matters not how you unleash utter destruction, but all will fall before your mighty armies and seas of terror. Until your Mum calls you for tea.

Mostly C's: You are a Wargamer. All the knowledge of history is yours. The hours you have spent researching battles from Ancient times to modern Afganistan distilled into a simple Mano a Mano match with your opponent. Until you roll that bloody 1. Historical accuracy my arse. Hitler never rolled a 1.

Mostly D's: You are a Role Player. You have spent years honing your skills, shapening your reflexes, developing your body to peak fitness, planning your sweet revenge. In character. You yourself have eaten lots of cheetos. Mmmm...cheetos.

Now, you may think there are other gamer categories, or that you have been mis-categoised. But there are not and you have not. Science has proved this.
