Once you realise that a game’s worth is not in its perfection, but in your own enjoyment level, then you’re going to have a lot more fun playing video games
Ok, this goes into some research I read on the different types of gamers.
Killers- Think your competitive types, they’re going to be playing games like Modern Warfare, Halo, and other competitive games. They get enjoyment by winning over their opponent.
Achievers- Going for the 100% route, trying to get the high score, etc. Think any game with increasing difficulty and esoteric achievements. They play games to try to achieve perfection within the game.
Explorers- They just want to explore the game- think more storytelling or immersive experiences, etc. They enjoy gaming because it allows them to escape and engage in a world and really take it all in.
Socializers- Found more in MMOs, where there can be real community building, they play games to meet and work with other people.
Killers and Achievers tend to be a lot holier than thou, but they’re all valid, so long as you’re having fun in your own way.
This is by far the best addition to this post, thank you for the analysis! I honestly didnt know about these different types, it’s really interesting!
