If you haven’t noticed it yet, a lot of video games (mostly visual novels and some RPG’s) now have their own anime adaptations; such as Danganronpa, Steins Gate, and many others that you may be familiar with. Most of us that are in the anime fanbase today, found their way to it through the video game track. (Meaning that they found out about anime through video games, like Pokemon!) With so many genres of games out there, there’s bound to be various types of gamers that like said genres. With that in mind we’re going to give you our Top 5 list of the type of gamers you’ll find at different gamer conventions. Which one are you? Check our list and find out! 😉
#5: The Casual Gamer
This type of gamer doesn’t game competitively nor tries to clear 100% of the entire game. He (or she) just likes to game mainly for entertainment purposes. The casual gamer is neutral, and possesses a bit of a laid-back persona. Almost a chilled gamer if you think about it…
#4: The Competitive Gamer
If an anime or video game con is having a SSB (Super Smash Bros.), Street Fighter, Mario Kart or even a Mortal Kombat tournament, you’d best believe that you’ll find this type of gamer here! Proceed with caution, as these gamers can get pretty turn’d up during heated tournament sessions. Their mission? to prove that they’re the top dog when it comes to video games.
#3: The Achiever
Action-adventure, First-person and Third-person Shooting games, are just a few of the gaming genres that this type of gamer will visit most frequently. This type of gamer is goal-oriented, has tactical gaming skills, and their weekly gaming sessions are almost the length of a Full-Time job! If you’re a video game tester who fits this title, then this IS your Full-Time job!
#2: The Button Masher
Have you ever seen a first-time gamer? Mashing buttons like there’s no tomorrow? Has no idea what they’re doing or even what the game’s about? Be honest, more than half of you have been this type of gamer during your childhood – unless you were blessed with gaming skills that would match even the most professional of gamers.
And finally #1: The Cheat Code Master
Infinite lives? Got it! Unlimited ammo? Got it! Hidden levels? You know it! If you’re a gamer, or you’re at least familiar with the gaming community, then this type of gamer is to noobs (or novice gamers), like a scout is to people trying to get basketball or football tickets. (And this is coming from a former Cheat Code Master too! Shh! Tell no one.)
If you have a gamer friend who is a cheat code master, then you’ve got the ultimate hook-up for life! Never again will you have to struggle on a level that can be beaten by pressing a few directional buttons in a particular sequence; Up, Up, Down, Down, L, R, Z! If you can guess what game that cheat code belongs to, then you deserve a cookie! 🙂
Well, that’ll about do it on our end. No matter what type of gamer you are, we all have one thing in common – a passionate love for video games! Keep gaming! 😉
