I don’t necessarily agree with the “Acrobat”. I’m generally not interesting in throwing myself against a wall Dark Souls style, and I’m not the type of person to sit in front of a combat dummy practicing my rotation until the cows come home. However, I definitely have a few games that I enjoyed like Payday 2 that you continually replay missions and I got really good at it by learning the missions and playing them often enough. So I guess that’s probably a “lean”.
As for Slayer, don’t have really any issues with that.
I’m going to group these together because I have just a few comments about the questionnaire.
TL;DR - It’s fundamentally flawed.
So there are a couple rather large problems with these types of questions they have set up. It is mediocrity/extremism and generalization.
By mediocrity/extremism, I mean I feel that the average person generally feels like they are mediocre on the scale. So say I occasionally play strategy games, but I’m not gung-ho about it. I like to play other things as well. Some days I feel like sitting back and driving a Semi-truck. Some days I feel like pwning noobs. But rarely, if ever, 100% balls to the walls for a single thing. I think even some people that primarily like a single style of play don’t necessarily believe that they are hardcore in that space. Which brings me to the questions. The way the questions are phrased plus the options provided exudes extremism. Like, on a scale of 10, how hardcore are you. Most people aren’t going to put 10 and rarely 0. That ends up skewing results unless it’s accounted for. Almost every single question I ran across I thought “sometimes, it depends”. This is partially a problem with how the questions were worded and partially due to the choosing scale.
As for generalization, some of the questions were too vague. There were definitely a few that I ran across that I was just like - “What? What is that supposed to mean?”. In an attempt to tailor it so that “everyone” can answer, they end up making it ambiguous enough that you again run into my previous issue - mediocrity. So for example - How important is gathering every single collectible/achievement? Well generally, I don’t care to, but sometimes I feel like achievement hunting. Or on the second playthrough I’ll spend more time messing around and getting achievements, titles, collectibles, side quests, etc.
Some of the questions are easily found to be geared to a specific option as well, so could tell it would lead to a specific option, causing bias to creep in.
IMO the best questions are relatable binary questions (y/n) that would be considered normal everyday activities.
