I can't say I'm that similar to any of them, but I'm most similar to Jeff in that I'll sink a lot of time into something I really like, while generally approaching most games with a strong disregard for caution, unlike Brad.. Ryan was more just the latter, I share Vinny's taste in games but don't play anything like him, Patrick seems kind of averse to action-based gameplay, and Drew treats games with more fastidiousness than I treat work.

definitely Vinny but he gets way luckier than me in some situations. im always looking for secrets for no good reason and doing silly shit for no good reason.

Somewhere between Vinny and Dave. Though I don't know which of the duders is the best player overall. Dark Souls was a breeze for me sooo ... add the best video gamer as well :P

I'm probably closest to Brad. I play games fairly conservatively and I go nuts for collectibles.

But I kind of wish I played more like Vinny.

I'd say I have vinny tendencies of gamebreaking. I think that's about as far as the connections go for me

A bit of a mix between Vinny and Brad. I am a completionist like Vinny but I enjoy the occasional competitive game like Brad.

Vinny; I come for the story; I stay because this thing here doesn't say 100%.

#58 Edited by Tom_omb (450 posts) -

I voted for Vinny because he's a bit of a completionist and a champion of the Adventure Game.

He's like me in multiplayer games too. We'd both be the first to admit we aren't that skilled and would rather go off the beaten path and goof off rather then be competitive players.

Somewhere between Patrick and Vinny. When I'm taking it seriously, I like to pay attention and draw upon subtext, search for some sort of reasoning and message. Then, after I have that, I find a giant vehicle and kill my own team with it.

May be not for 100% of games but Jeff is similar to me, for some reason the "No Med packs - all in!" play style of XCom is the way I go also: mainly because I am the kinda straight and narrow player, I mainly spend 90% of my time in a game doing the main stuff then that's it: but I am also on a time-scale as I use a rental account so the quicker I beat it the better.

I am a Brad. I tend to jump in and get frustrated real quick. There's a lot of "GodFuck" equivalents coming out of my mouth.

#62 Posted by UitDeToekomst (761 posts) -

Not sure. I definitely have Vinny's collectible obsession, but I also tend to go solo in games like Jeff. I have zero in horror or obscure indie games, so not Patrick. I might lean toward Brad on some things, but his chosen genres tend not to gel with mine. Maybe Dave? I don't know. My head hurts now.

50% Vinny: If there's a thing to collect, I will get all of them.

50% Drew: A significant portion of my non-game time is dedicated to researching the nuances of a game.

A completionist to my own detriment.

#65 Edited by DonutFever (3553 posts) -

I like things to move quickly, like Jeff. I love to have new experiences/get scared, like Patrick.

#66 Posted by hippocrit (263 posts) -

Vinny for sure. I'm pretty sure I NEED all those feathers, and FUCK multiplayer.

#67 Posted by zombiepenguin9 (534 posts) -

I said Vinny, but that's more of a goal than reality. I'd really like to explore every nook and cranny of a game and do everything available to me, but I have to save that sort of dedication for a few select games.

I love all the Bombers, but sometimes I hate to hear them talk about games. Granted, they are in the "business" and play games all the time but at times they mostly just sound to cynical for me to ever relate to. Vinny is the closest, by far, but at times Brad and Jeff come off as insufferable. If Ryan were still around I would more closely resemble him.

Example, Jeff at time berates a game for having an "unnecessary" sequel but then gets excited for another Call of Duty or another Skylanders. Then as another user states, Brad tends to get lost in one game for months, maybe years, at a time and ONLY plays that game (outside of the duties of his job). I have played CS for like14 years but I still play other freaking games.

Vinny, I love breaking games...

#70 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (6086 posts) -

Probably somewhere between Jeff and Vinny.

#71 Edited by SarcasticMudcrab (216 posts) -

The mischievous side of Patrick, the destructive side of Vinny and the life expectancy side of Brad.

But mostly Dave.

#72 Posted by TobbRobb (4877 posts) -

I'm more or less a Brad. Though we have some distinctly different tastes.

#73 Posted by PeezMachine (233 posts) -

I think I'm a Drew. Meticulous and thorough.

  • 1 part of Vinny & Dave's love of complex systems & lore (except I actually figured out Dwarf Fort).
  • 1 part of Brad if you replaced his love of DotA2 with LoL.
  • 1 part of Patrick's enjoyment of the occasional off-brand niche game.
  • And finish off with Jeff's dislike of Red Dead Redemption & Yoshi's Island.
