Definitely the conventional player (and got that in the quiz). I have zero interest in watching others play games, and I'm not a hardware enthusiast (care less and less about having the best graphics etc. the older I get). I don't take it seriously enough--not competitive, don't have "gamer" as part of my self identity/DNA so I don't fit the ultimate. I just love playing games and talking about what I'm playing, speculating about upcoming releases etc.

Pretty stupid quiz. I play a lot, watch a ton and have spent a lot on games this year already (2k+ €, no ingame-garbage or subscriptions or whatever, just pure games), yet I'm a "Cloud Gamer". Only the hardware part applies because I haven't bought anything really in the past three years.
Same for me. I did the quiz twice and only changed the spend from 'less than 50' to 'average' and got Ultimate Gamer.

Maybe I should just embrace the mumsie profile and get Stadia. 🤮

Wow only 1.2% of Neogaf users are gaming journalists. Disappointing.:messenger_beaming:

I would qualify as an ultimate gamer in the sense that's where my time and money goes but I think all the streaming stuff is completely stupid.

That being said if I didn't work a normal slave job I'd probably try my hand at it.

According to the quiz I'm the Ultimate Gamer but I'm not sure why. I don't watch streams, or let's plays, or Esports or much gaming media in general aside from reviews, a weekly podcast and the big live events like E3.

Reading the descriptions I think I'd fall more into the "conventional gamer" type

Which of the following statements applies most to you regarding gaming hardware (including devices, components, and peripheral products)?

The hardware I buy is not specifically made for gaming or sold as gaming hardware. Hardware in general does not play a big role in my overall gaming experience.
Although hardware is important to my gaming experience, I only spend money on hardware when I feel it will significantly improve my gaming experience or is required to play a certain game.
Hardware is an essential part of my gaming experience. I frequently spend money on upgrading my gaming set-up to have the best gaming hardware available.

None apply, I only buy hardware when a game I want is not available on the hardware I have.
It's literally the 2nd option. "or is required to play a certain game"

I'm kinda the same. Kinda because everything you said fits me except the hardware part. Still a hardware enthusiast :messenger_sunglasses:

Somehow got hardware enthusiast, when I consider myself more of a casual gamer. Weird quiz.

Can't vote but I would be a mix of Ultimate gamer (90%) and Cloud gamer(10% for the hardware part, I'll buy a new console only if I really want to play a specific game).

I play games on consoles and PC, don't watch stream and know 0 personalities on youtube. Neogaf is the only place I talk about games rather than playing them.

I guess conventional gamer?

Although I would disagree on the % that conventional gamers out there. I guess the figures are skewed by counting mobile games as games?
 

ULTROS!

People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks.

I got Conventional Gamer (weird because if I chose that I'm not particular with peripherals, I get Cloud Gamer, which isn't really me).

I don't watch streams, eSports, nor invest in too much merchandise (rarely so) but I play a lot.

PC Hardware enthusiast. Love reading about and understanding new hardware and optimizing my own PC. Don't need to have the the best equipment though (says the man with a undervolted 1080 Ti). Games are nice too ... I guess :p

Conventional by far.

Very rare to watch a "let's play". I own all the hardware, so I keep looking for software - but mostly at day one. Play for the fun in first place, so I don't compete that much with other people, and even when I do, don't really care by being the first - don't really care to won trophies

I would be an All around.

I mean, I play games a lot but I also enjoy watching walkthroughs, speedruns and TAS.

Edit: Ok, I didn't read the part that I have to do a test to check this LOL

I end up being an Ultimate gamer. Talk about differences.

Took the quiz and apparently I'm an "Ultimate Gamer!™" :rolleyes:

I'd beg to differ, but I guess I have spent a lot on hardware & peripherals in the last 3 years. 🤷‍♂️

It says I am an ultimate gamer, but I don't really feel like one... 😅

I'd describe myself someplace between all-round enthusiast and popcorn gamer, leaning towards the former.

Edit: I got hardware enthusiast in the quiz. Last upgraded my PC in 2011 :messenger_dizzy:

i got the ultimate gamer, however i'm very very VERY selective about the games i play (and i like in general) and the people i watch playing.
