New Quiz: What Type of Video Game Are You?

What kind of video game experience is best for you?

Do you like video games? I loved video games when I was a kid. It was the golden age of arcade games, and I played as often as I could. Luckily, I could find machines everywhere, and it was very easy to sneak a game in before a movie or while I was waiting for pizza. Back then video games felt very democratic. Anyone with a quarter could play, and it wasn’t that difficult to learn them.

As video games got more complex, I wasn’t so sure that I liked them any longer. When fancy console and PC games became the standard, I actually kind of forgot that I used to like video games so much. With a few exceptions (like Katamari Damacy and a few sports games), I just didn’t have the time to devote to learning each new game. If you had asked me a few years ago, I would probably have told you that I wasn’t a big video game fan at all.

Lately, I rediscovered video games that were easier to pick up and play. Between flash games, smart phone games, and (yes!) a local video game arcade, I have remembered what I love about playing video games… the more casual and fun aspects! I’m starting to believe that almost anyone can like video games – you just have to find the right type of game. That’s what has inspired my latest quiz: What Type of Video Game Are You? Comment below to let me know what you got, and what you think of video games in general.
