Their result for What Kind Of Gamer Are You? ...

FSPE - Racer

2 Twitch-Fluid, 6 Simple-Complex, 8 Planning-Acting and 8 Entertainment-Difficulty!

FSPE's thrive on the asphalt. Racing games require a finesse and foresight that is not very foreign to FSPE's They have a steady hand and good planning abilities which allows them to telegraph and accommodate the racetrack accordingly. They are excellent at choosing when to pass an opponent and can easily handle it when they are wrong and lose control. They have little care or time to learn complex controls; stop and go are the only things they need to know. Above all, FSPE's play for the thrill of the race, especially since some games such as Driver and Burnout have no clear cut winner.

 

Games FSPE's like: Gran Turismo, Driver, Burnout, MotoStorm

 

 

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.

 

SIMPLE

You remember the good old days, when Atari was cutting edge with a joystick and ONE BUTTON. This is not to say that you can't handle more complex controls and concepts, but you prefer that your games didn't require half a novel's worth of instructions. You do best when all the controls and options are right at your fingertips. You probably feel right at home with older games because they inherently have less to work with. Newer games either frustrate you with too many buttons and options, or they just annoy you because there are simpler ways to climb a ladder than jumping on, holding L, and then pushing forward.

 

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.

 

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.
