Go to BrainHex.com to learn more about this player model, and the neurobiological research behind it.

Seems pretty accurate; I like beating games but I don't have that completionist tendency. And I've found that some of my favorite games require stategy to get through. I really enjoy "breaking" games and plowing through everything now that I've figured it out.

Yeah, I feel like I don't beat a game until I get everything. It took over 100 hours to beat Donkey Kong 64 because I wanted every golden banana, coin, regular banana, etc. Mario Kart DS was the same way; I didn't stop until I got three stars in all grand prixs and missions.

“I can do it.”

You like collecting anything you can collect, and doing everything you possibly can.

Your behaviour works towards the satisfaction of completing tasks and collections, and the intense reward of overcoming impossibly distant goals – about which you can become obsessive.

Your major brain region is the nucleus accumbens, the “pleasure centre”, which is triggered whenever you collect something or complete a task – the bigger the achievement, the bigger the reward!

Your chemical messenger is dopamine, which is chemically similar to cocaine, and which has been linked to good habit formation and obsessive behaviour.

If you were an animal, it would be a beaver.

Favourite games of Achievers surveyed so far include Final Fantasy, Mario, Monopoly, Monster Hunter, Pokémon, and World of Warcraft.

I love Mario and Pokemon. Heck, I'm so into Pokemon I've been on Pokemon forums for three years and played competitively. :lol:

Also, beavers are freaking awesome. :P

I think we're missing some key things when looking at these results. For example, everyone with achiever brings up collecting, but based on what I read achiever also means someone who wants to overcome any challenge that presents itself in a game, no matter how tough or undoable it seems. I'm like that with a lot of games I play, unless it's a game that I don't like enough to make that sort of commitment. I like getting medals, achievements, top ranks in every stage, unlocking everything, beating hard mode, etc.
