TCAE - Rhythm Gamer

7 Twitch-Fluid, 4 Simple-Complex, 5 Planning-Acting and 6 Entertainment-Difficulty!

Thanks to DDR and Guitar Hero, music and rhythm games have grown from a niche genre into a whole new marketing scheme. TCAE's enjoy being challenged with completing complex tasks with little to no preparation. Rhythm games provide a perfect outlet with long intricate combos and a beat to follow. Entertainment is the main goal of Rhythm Gamers, which is why so many rhythm games feature popular music. They love the pressure and urgency of hitting the right moves at just the right time and pride themselves on their ability to memorize very long passages. While TCAE's are often dismissed as casual gamers, the skills they practice can easily be applied to other genres such as fighting games and platformers.

TWITCH

You have a strong twitch reflex, which means that your muscles tend to move in very quick jerky movements. This makes you especially adept to action games, since they rely on that very same jerky motion and quick button pressing. You probably beat the pants off of others in minigames using the "tap A to run" mechanism, and you hold your own even in fighting games that you've never played because you can execute the moves very quickly. Unfortunately, you also have trouble with games that require precision movements like shooting games. Your thumbs are just too fast and that little analog stick is so sensitive! And games that require precise timings like the Mario Bros 3 extra life slider give you trouble as well.

 

COMPLEX

The more the better is your motto. You want your games to be a nuanced and varied as you are. You don't mind shuffling through an extra menu or two or learning a couple more combos. If it will add depth to the game and give you more freedom, bring it on! You've probably debated on more than one occasion why can't Pokemon have more than four moves at a time. Or you've committed yourself to learning Zangeif's entire moveset, just to be that much better for the next match. You enjoy managing money, stats and equipment, making your team or army or city bigger, better, and badder. And you're always looking for a new way to complete a task. You also tend to lose interest or generally have trouble with simpler games, as you become frustrated or confused by the lack of things in your control.

 

ACTING

In the virtual world, who needs a plan when you can just hit the reset button? You play things by ear, and when the shit hits the fan, you hit the bricks. You're the one who survives the zombie onslaught with only a knife. You're the one who captures the flag long after the rest of your team was killed. You're also the one who can never be relied upon. Because you're never really prepared, you could die during a crucial moment when everyone else has that extra healing potion left. Or during an important mission you fail because you forgot to get the security passcard to get in the base undetected. You play the biggest risk and you reap the results.

 

ENTERTAINMENT

You play mostly for the fun of the game. Whether its the story, the gameplay, or just the overall feel of the game, something about it draws you in. You'll find yourself popping a game in years after you completed it to revisit the characters, locales, and gameplay. You probably own at least a few game soundtracks and maybe a few posters. You appreciate games as art and a way to pass the time. You may also play competitively (either professionally or amateur) but that's not the reason you'll be playing them 40 years from now.
