    What are you motivations for playing games?
    With the intention of purchasing and playing this many game titles, how do you prioritize playing games and the rest of your life?
    If not covered by your motivations for playing games, how did you choose this priority?
    Many of these questions have been answered in part or worse, fully, before.

    1) Mostly Strategy with RPG/FPS and Action.
    2) I enjoy the entertainment value; it also exercises my mind.
    3) I do life, in my spare time I play games... This is not a great deal of games and it still leaves ample time for reading 2-4 books a month unless I am extra busy with work.
    4) What I have started but not completed < What is available which I have no played yet which I would enjoy the most < Old games which I have especially enjoyed.

    Hey just edited my post. You're uncannily quick.
    Apologies on not reading those answers first. I tried reading the entire thread but had to stop with all the NTP and moderator talk so I skipped to the end and saw a post about gaming that piqued my interest. Oh and just to make sure I'm following your thread's rules, here's a question
    Will you answer my added questions?

    b)Do you share any of this resentment? please explain?
    c)What is your opinion on the change in game interface between ME1 and ME2? What do you hope they will do with ME3?
    d)I've also got a personal resentment for continuous sequels that add little ex. Command and conquer series, COD franchise and even to an extent my beloved HL series. I feel like that I am just paying for a yearly subscription to a certain developer for my weekly HBO drama. What is your opinion of the 'subscriptionization' of big name titles?
    e)What do you think about a business concept where fan boys pay a periodic subscription fee to a developer to ensure the longevity of their favorite big name title?
    f)Would you like to see the state of gaming elevated to a platform on par with other forms of media as art game developers such as Ian Bogost and Johnathan Blow have been preaching? Or are you happy with the current state?
    g)How well do your friends/family/peers respond to your high interest in gaming?
    h)Do you think certain BMITs have a natural disposition to games? If so what types and what do you think it would take to change games to appeal to these untapped audiences?
    i)Or do you not care about all this industry and game design discussion and just want to shoot some alien's head off?
    a) So so, although I was a great appreciator of hardcore games I also like games to have a medocium of accessibility. The problem with hardcore games was bugginess, by contrast look at the great old games 'Master of Magic/Orion' or Theme park or Civ etc. which were great simply for their accessibility. However this doesn't mean I shied away from the most complex games or derivatives (he said playing X3 10 minutes ago).
    b) I don't find it something to be resentful about; cash is king and accessibility is audience.
    c) I prefered ME2 compared to ME1, the scanner stuff was dumb though. I liked the *gasp* accessibility of having less weapons instead of carrying around a large arsenal at any time and more direct accumulation of wealth/upgrades and also the decent combat system.
    d) It used to be a bad thing, now normally, they are released as a pack on steam for a low low price. The problem with serialization is having to play the preceding games before the next one.
    e) However the fanboi's wish to spend their consumer surplus is their perogative; personally considering the 10's of thousands of dollars I've spent on hardware/software never mind time invested I'm nothing if not a fanboi mahself.
    f) I think its a great idea in principle; however, games should be games first; they are better than cinema or TV or art thats why I enjoy them so.
    g) Quite well. My mother was always happier I was playing games instead of taking drugs and spraypainting trains. Most of my friends and work colleagues (me being an engineer) are either gamers or ultra PC savvy and other people in my family are avid gamers.
    h) Could you explain what a BMIT is?
    i) You can't have one without the other

    Gaming is the favoured playground of ISTJ/INTJ/INTP and ISTP (I assume based on some loose charts). However, MMORPGS, e.g. WOW also have great appeal for ENFJs and INFPs.

    Cool charts. Mostly I was teasing though, hence the wink.
