Gamer Motivation Profile

Having recently taken the 'Gamer Motivation Profile' from Quantic Foundry. Lets delve into it!

Having recently taken the ‘Gamer Motivation Profile‘ from Quantic Foundry.
Lets delve into it!

According to the survey- I am a calm, analytical, independent and practical gamer. And I agree. Even though these results might change over time as I explore newer games or even genre – I found that the results are true to my actual personality.

Quantic Foundry have also provided a game recommendation based on the results – however I find that 8/10 of the recommendations does not interest me – at all. The 2 games that I have considered to play after viewing the recommendations were the XCOM series. Though in hindsight, maybe Quantic Foundry did not have a database for JRPGs – the genre that I am more likely to partake.

My introversion explains much of the results in this gamer profile. For instance, a glaring obvious – a score of 6% on the social aspects of gaming is explained much by my aversion to be put into a social setting. Or that the immersion is the highest scoring as I would very much prefer to watch and consume stories – an escape.

By the way- fact: I scored a 94% Introverted personality. But that is for another story to tell.
