If there’s one genre in video games that pretty much-surprised everyone with its success is ‘Action’.
Do you always wonder: Why are action video games becoming such a big success despite the fact that they have no desire to shoot or kill actual people?
If you too are intrigued to learn the answer to this tantalizing question, then join me as we explore the 4 groups of these players.
- Achieving Adams (Acting, World) – They are the ones who want their names on the top of the scoreboards and dream to get 100% of the achievement badges that a game may give. They take the game as a challenge. Leaderboards, levels, and shiny badges, grab these folks, and many games have more than enough to satisfy anyone.
- Exploring Edwards (World, Interacting) – They want to learn as much as they can about the game. This includes exploring the story and huge portions of the map, along with that it includes exploring mechanics. They play a particular game for the knowledge. They are attracted to the games with great mechanics and interesting settings that give them a lot of freedom.
- Socializing Steves (Players, Interacting) – This group usually plays the game just to hang out with their friends and have fun. They play for the community. Thus, they gravitate towards more casual action games where the community is more emphasized.
- Battling Bernsteins (Players, Acting) – These are the ones who are interested in beating a human opponent. They would gladly play a less flashy game as long as they were confident that they could win bragging rights. They play their game for the competition. Games with high skill ceilings attract these players.
Hence, you can see, the action genre of games holds a broad appeal, and is coupled with simple to understand mechanics.
