View Full Version : What's your gaming style?

Hey everyone!

I'm curious, what's your gaming style? When you play your games, whether it's Knights and Dragons, PC games, consoles, handelds or tabletop, how do you like to set yourself up?

Do you game in absolute silence so you can concentrate (perhaps for those "must get 100% of the achievement list!" players)? Or maybe you crank up the radio while considering what armor would be best to use? Perhaps you sit back in a comfy chair, pour yourself a nice hot cup of tea and put on the classical music while you shoot zombies?

My favorite set up is: Iced tea within reach, game/controller in hand but having my laptop nearby playing something off of Netflix (yay for multi-tasking).

How about you?

Haha so so far listening to music while gaming seems to be the popular style!

How about what kind of music do you listen to while you game? Does music with lyrics mess up your concentration or does that not affect it? How about what genre of music?

I find that when I game and listen to music, it's often music that's actually BGM for a different game!

I would have to say that Classic rock or some metal would suit it for me..And lyrics don't mess me up at least.

My bed, it's comfortable and I have a nice set up to make it feel like a livingroom. I use my laptop to play games and Netflix on tv. I play KnD to kill my free time :P

This game is about the only game I play. I use it to escape from my real life and relax. It's a nice break to not have to think or worry about anything else.

Not gaming atm but the NETFLIX thing I'm doing it right now I've got the screen split in two some netflix on one side and typing this on the other.

Well when it comes to such boredom-killing games as KnD then it makes no difference to me whether there is music, some movie playing in a background or playing on Android while comuting, but when playing for instance Counter-Strike or League of Legends I highly prefer full silence, door shut, sunlight covered by shutters and my headphones on. But I play (or rather used to play) both of those games on quite a profi level, so there was more 'I NEED TO WIN' than 'GIRLS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN' :)

Drink just within arms reach, controller/phone in hand, music on phone/laptop and I like to light a scented candle. Don't know why but it seems to cut down on how often I get munchies during marathon sessions(4+ hrs)

I would teeth grind when forced to replay lvls, started keeping my old hockey mouth guard around. More psychosomatic than anything, only had to use it a few times

Just have to use it as a lesson, it is only a game and not to take it so seriously

Guess i need more lessons then... I tend to play 16 hours straight and sometimes longer.

Sorry for going off topic.

On topic: Now i got a good idea... Buy a clock to put NeXT to my TVmonitor.

I still like to get my serious marathon sessions(12+hrs) in when I can. Just few and far between anymore. I have 2 clocks by the TV and have learned to stop looking at both. If I am in to my game I lose all concept of time and as long as the fiancee isn't yelling for me I'm ok with escaping reality for a bit

If i'm playing knights and dragons, i'm doing it at work when i'm bored, or when i'm home and bored.

Sometimes, i have netflix or the tv on in the background when I'm home.

When I play console games, I have all focus on the other games and don't pay attention to anything else.

for KnD wars, I like silence and a soda. I usually have line up on my computer and have knd on 2 devices, and I'm our main war coordinator, so i need to concentrate.

During just regular game play, something alcholic makes chatting in line fun, but does make it so I don't actually play much, lol

For WoW, it depends on my mood. Sometimes I just want quiet, sometimes I'm talking in teamspeak. If i'm farming herbs and fish, netflix or hulu is probably on.

It depends on my mood. I can't do game sound it gets repetitive and annoying but I do like to listen to music. When I'm playing MMORPG's if I'm not talking in a chat program I'm listening to tunes. For K&D often I'm snuggled up on the couch with the man watching football and popping baddies whenever energy is up.

My long gaming sessions usually consist of a pizza pie, can of Dr. Pepper, and some RPGs loaded onto my big screen TV.

Videos on one device, K&D on the other :cool: a bit distracting, but overall very fun.

Podcasts. Usually they're about an hour long. Good way to keep track of how much time I've spent between bathroom breaks.

Totally depends on the game Im playing. My favorite thing to do is play CoD or Halo with a few beers in reach, some munchie food set up, and after every game go stake a phat on Runescape. All the while screaming and starting fights with people over XBL just cuz it makes the game more fun when you get the enemy raging at you. This is rare I get to do this tho, as normally the wife is at home :/

If I'm playing KnD, I'm watching television but with console games I have Spotify playing music to suit the game genre.
