FCPD - Puzzle Gamer

2 Twitch-Fluid, 3 Simple-Complex, 10 Planning-Acting and 4 Entertainment-Difficulty!

Not every battle is won with a fast hand and wicked reflexes. No one knows this better than Puzzle Gamers. FCPD's are thinkers, and their actions are deliberate, precise, and smooth. They don't rely on twitchy movements and button mashing. Every move is done for a reason and every path has been explored. While it's easy to dismiss Puzzle Gamers as "slow" or "less aggressive" it is ultimately wrong. FCPD's have sharp minds and can find paths and options never explored by a "faster" gamer. They have the ability to process complex ideas and options quickly and they thoroughly explore any option they choose to reap the most benefit from it.

 

Games FCPD's like: Tetris, Prince of Persia, Professor Layton

 

 

FLUID

You have very subtle, smooth movements. Your muscles stay relaxed, even in tense situations. This makes you ideal for games where you have to perform precise movements under pressure such as shooters and racing games. Your thumbs glide over the controller and you are probably one the better shots on your team in Call of Duty or even can do fairly well in a racing game you've never played because you don't make the car spin out of control. But you also don't do as well with games that require a faster touch. Most hardcore action games and fighting games will give you a hard time because the other players can input the moves a lot faster than you can. And you probably can't tap the button fast enough to blow up your balloon in Mario Party.

 

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.

 

PLANNING

When it comes to the actual act of playing, you're a no-frills flawless machine. It's a good thing that video game characters don't actually carry all the stuff in your inventory, because they'd probably suffocate underneath it all! You've got your armies all highly trained and equipped with rocket launchers and jeeps with gatling guns. You didn't even have to be in the same room as your PS2 to finish the final boss of Final Fantasy XII. You're prepared for anything because you've got it all figured out ahead of time. But even the best plans backfire sometimes and that's where your weakness shines through. You're so used to having enough healing potions that when you actually run out you're a sitting duck.

 

DIFFICULTY

You play mostly for the challenge. You thrive on the idea that you are defeating an enemy or piloting a jet. As the game presents new challenges, you knock them down and the ones you can't pass drive you to become a better player and overcome them. You probably have played tournaments before and you enjoy friendly competition. You probably one more than one strategy guide and maybe even are on a forum or part of a clan dedicated to your favorite game. You probably also love the art and music and design of video games but the only reason you might pop in GoldenEye is because some old pals come over and you all want to start up a deathmatch and see who's still got it.
