Tell me about your game narrative preferences

Hey everyone!

I´m currently writing my master thesis on game narrative preferences and wanted to ask whether anybody would like to share theirs using the survey I created? It starts off with identifying what drives you to play games and then transitions to which main characters, villains, and settings you prefer! Any help is appreciated! Smile

In case you´re interested (best on PC and of course, anonymously), here´s the link

Sure, I am a slayer and went from there. You might want to note that in your post (to take the gamer profile survey first) cos I almost went through it without doing that (mind you, that’s partly my fault for not reading). But it’s worth noting that you can complete the gamer profile without any kind of sign up (almost made me not bother until I realized sign up wasn’t necessary, so I went ahead and did it!). And don’t forget to post this on Reddit r/gamedev or such! regards

Thanks so much for completing it! And yes, I will note that down then to make it more clear Smile

I wonder what your archetype is, Adv_lvr.

I’m a BARD, which is 100% correct. I’m inclined to think you got the same.

I’m primarily a BARD, but with the secondary ARCHITECT.

And I had a whole lot of “No preference” answers, because I always care way more about the quality of the work and the writing, than I do of the setting, time period, genre or character motivations.

The only defined thing in roleplaying is that I prefer the main character to resemble me as closely as possible. I prefer roleplaying as myself… Grin
Only if the game is good enough to warrant a replay, then I’ll go the other way, picking the options furthest away from me as possible, often as a way of “getting the most out of the game”.

That´s perfectly fine! The importance of story varies from player to player. Thanks for completing it!

I’m not surprised I got Architect. What I am surprised by is that on question 22, the survey has “Casual Puzzle” as a genre option but not non-casual puzzle (eg Baba Is You or Snakebird). (I could come up with some other nitpicks there too but I guess there will always be some issues with genre definitions.)
