More the former, although I think I'm pretty neutral on T/F overall. If I had to pick just one Myers-Briggs type for myself though, I'd lean ISTP.

That's a great type for a gamer. It should give you an edge when it comes to finding those brilliant tactical plays, solving knotty problems, or even negotiating (where that's part of the game).

...124 to run fleeing from the mountain. ...125 to use a rope to climb the steep cliff. ...126 to quickly cast "summon stairs." ...127 to dodge under the falling rocks.

Heh, I always think I'm INTP but I'm NOT. Every time I take the test I'm INFJ: The Counselor, but I for some reason see myself as more INTP: The Architect... (Other people agree I'm totally the Counselor though...)

However, I too almost drowned when I was five. Because I keep walking deeper into the lake by keeping my feet on the bottom. I wanted to see how far I could go. My family, however, freaked out and "rescued" me - though I didn't think I needed rescuing. I've always been strange that way.

If I was to pick just one of those, I'd probably go with microtransactions, as those are the most obviously wrong in my opinion (a method of monetization borrowed from free to play games, which themselves introduced the entirely idiotic concept that you can have something a lot of people worked on for many months or even years for free), and in addition serve as insidious tools for messing with the balance of even purely single-player experiences.

"Gamer" culture.

Yup, these pretty much say it all.

If I wanted to toss in something different, I'd add how I actually miss the hard puzzles in adventure games, and I wish modern adventure games weren't quite so easy (or would scale the puzzles based on difficult rather than just removing hint functionality) - it annoys me that I can finish them so quickly these days...

But that is a relatively petty complaint compared to these four listed.

If you were an INTP (or INTJ), you'd probably say your family has always been strange that way.


(Btw, I self-identified as an INFJ myself for a long time before I realized my type is really INFP. I tried INTP and ISFJ on for size too, some years ago.)

Oh, my family is strange all right... but I'm by no means the weirdest, and we're all weird in different messed up ways.

I thought this video was a good analysis of some of the reasons the games industry is split into big business making bland and often exploitative retreads of last year's fad, and everyone else.

The (low) quality and (high) quantity of churned out games on the iOS app store.

My inability to create even the most rudimentary games of my own
