Quote from: imlordpuppy on July 26, 2005, 04:57:48 PMThis classification system is very interesting and seems to do a good job describing those gamers I've encountered along the way. However, as a new reader of The Forge, I am wondering if anyone has attempted to quantify this or has made a test already? Something along the lines of a gamer's personality test getting results that say "You're 36 percent Simulationist, 40 percent Narrativist and 24 percent Gamist" (Or maybe sliding scales for how much you enjoy each style of play, etc.?)

Young on July 28, 2005, 10:08:01 PMI had suggested a few months back taking a stab at collecting snippets of game accounts and having players rate them according to whether this was like the way they played or unlike it. It was generally thought that this would be a reasonable approach to helping players identify their preferences. However, I have not had an opportunity to pursue that.
