    That seems accurate, though since it just directly asks your preferences I suppose there’s no reason it shouldn’t be.

  3. Brian says:

    Eh, reasonably accurate, at least for video games. I think I object to “punishment,” as cited in Joshua’s profile, more than I object to “fear.”

  4. Joshua says:

    I strongly object to fear. I would never play any sort of horror game.

    Punishment sort of depends…I’ll do stuff over and over to get better at it if it’s something like Karaoke Revolution, though I’m still not willing to fail out dozens of times, but if I miss the same stupid jump more than about three times in a platformer I usually give up on the game.

  5. Brian says:

    I guess it depends on the definition. I dislike “visceral” fear, so I would never play a game like “Alone in the Dark” or “Silent Hill.” But I don’t need to feel “safe” or “in control” when I’m gaming…there has to be some risk of failure, or the achievement is no fun. I view “safe” as the opposite of “punishment” rather than the opposite of “fear,” is my point.

  6. Joshua says:

    That doesn’t really make sense to me. At least, I wouldn’t describe the feeling of being at a risk of failure as unsafe or out-of-control. Inability to master a move, defeat a boss, or solve a puzzle makes me frustrated, not anxious or uneasy. To me the opposite of punishment is something like “Easy”, “Casual” or “Forgiving.”
