I know the majority of you play video games, don't lie to me! Even if it is basic crap on your phone I want to know about it.

So what video games do you play and why is it good for your INTJ-self?

I'll just list some games I have played and my impressions of them. In no particular order.

TERA (Free):
This game is a great mindless grind game. If you're bored and want to kill some weekend time, here is a great game for doing nothing rewarding or intellectually stimulating. I like the dynamic combat system. It's not tab-target based. You actually have to dodge the monsters' attacks or else you die. I like that. That makes it really fun. Healing in this game absolutely sucks, though, because a lot of the heals are skill-shots. So if you like to play a healer, this game will teach you how to hate playing a healer. Just picture being in a boss fight wherein the boss just did a huge aoe skill on your entire team and you have to top everyone's hp up super quickly or else you're all going to wipe, but everyone is moving around all over the place and you have to LAND SKILL SHOTS ON THEM while they're running from the boss and cavorting all over the damn screen. While also trying not to die yourself.

Portal/Portal 2 (Not Free):
I don't really view stand-alone games like this as "video games." Video games to me are MMOs. Portal is not an MMO. Portal is, however, a damn good game. So intellectually stimulating, as well the story line is cool as fuck. Really loved Portal 2. The atmosphere of the game is seriously stunning to me. Love it so much. I fell in love with the chamber designs and overall mood of the game while playing it. Love it so much. Definitely a world you can get lost in.

League of Legends (Free):
I have a love/hate with LoL. If you just play it casually, you will probably like it. Especially if you play it with friends. Friends are key in LoL. You can't play it solo and expect to enjoy it. Unless you're one of those robots who ends up becoming pro at the game by spamming solo queue. It's very, very team-reliant, which is why I suggest friends. And Skype. It can be very fun to play with friends, even if you are losing. Which you should be doing about half the time, as the match maker system auto-corrects after every game played, always shooting for a 50% win/loss rate.

Trove (Free):
I really, really like this game. I wish I could tell you why. It's something about how simple it is combined with how immersive it is. It's similar to Minecraft and similar to League of Legends. I'll explain. The world is made up of blocks like in Minecraft, but you have different classes you can play as, like in League of Legends. And you can swap classes at any time. And you level up those classes to a max level, at which point you can not level up that class any more, but you can of course still play the class. And ya there are many classes to choose from. The more you play, the more reward points you earn that will let you unlock more classes--just like in LoL. But Trove is an MMO, not a MMOBA like LoL. Trove has a nice community-based playstyle. . . by that I mean that people group up tons in this game because there is no incentive to play solo. And tons of incentive to group up. And so you'll never be without people to play with. So I really love that. And there's no party system--to receive group rewards, you need only to be near other players. So easy. It's really great. I would recommend downloading this game and just trying it if you're interested. It's on Steam. Free. The gear in the game is very obtainable by everyone. It drops from monsters that you can solo. But grouping obviously makes this easier. And there's no grinding for hours and hours to get a particular drop because the game's crafting system lets you customize any weapon you get into the exact weapon you want to have. It's seriously great. Can't say enough good things about it. Seriously, ask me about it if you're curious.

Rift (Free):
This game is not much different from other MMOs. This game looks similar to WoW, but the graphics of Rift are much, much better. I did enjoy Rift. Probably because I enjoy MMOs, and Rift is an MMO. So . . . go figure that I liked it. But to be frank, it really doesn't bring anything new or special to the MMO genre. It lets you play as every class on the same character--simply open up the menu interface in-game and switch your class in seconds. Really nice feature. So that's different from other MMOs. Similar to Archeage in that respect, though. If you have any specific questions about this game, I'd be happy to answer. But as of right now, I'm struggling to come up with things to say. I played til max level twice and even stuck around a few months after that. Healing in this game is extremely fun. One of my favourite games for healing hands-down.

Archeage (Free):
I couldn't get into this game at all. Overhyped, in my opinion. It's sort of one of those mindless grind games that tries to be super immersive. And maybe it is super immersive for some people. For me personally it just seemed tedious as hell.

Runescape Members (Not Free):
RuneScape offers a feature (well, many features actually) that other games do not have. For me, this feature is arbitrage. I love arbitrage. Arbitrage keeps me playing the game because I love predicting the markets and making bank off being right. This feature is obviously optional, though, and you have no need to indulge in arbitrage to be financially successful in the game. Or even to enjoy the game. But it's definitely what I enjoy most about the game that many other games never offer at all. Quite sad, really. Many aspects of the game are AFKable, so you can have RuneScape running in the background while you play another game, such as Trove, in the foreground. In this way, I kind of view RuneScape as like a very sophisticated chat room.

Since I dont have a decent pc right now, Im limited to low end games. Those are:

Doom 2 - so simple yet so complex. Lots of multiplayer fun, lots of mods and mappacks. I mostly play survival

Dwarf Fortress - arguably the most complex open world sandbox game out there. If you like extreme levels of detail, for example reading about the entire lineage and achievements of some random creature and a procedually generated, massive, fully simulated worlds. The fort mode has you in relative control of a group of dwarves. Its like sim city combined with lord of the rings. Im there for the strategy and management aspects. The random nature of the game is also fun

I play games that are original, lately of course I played Witcher 3, Far Cry, Dying Light, I avoid games like LoL or Call of Duties, I'm not interested in competing at video games, I played Runescape 10 years ago, some mmoRPGs in the past, when LineAge2 was popular, not playing anymore, they are all the same, other than that Kerbal Space Program, Minecraft (boy I love minecraft, especially modded).

I try a lot of games, but actually I don't finish much because I get bored before.

Oh dear, I almost forgot about Demons Souls series, Dark Souls, Dark Souls 2 and Bloodborne.

I like video games with either deep gameplay systems or storylines, or both. My favorite series is the Souls series. Dark Souls in particular is my favorite game of all time. Its atmospheric world really draws me in, and I appreciate the lore-heavy and subtle plot featured in it. I appreciate the challenge and old-school feel of its gameplay, and the innovative features it brought to the online aspect of the game. It also has larger-than-life boss battles that are iconic and memorable.

Other top games of all time for me include: Half-Life 2, Deus Ex, Metroid Prime, Silent Hill 2, Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Mass Effect 2, and Metal Gear Solid 3.

That is the whole list of singleplayer games I've completed and will even become bigger hahahah. All of them completed with all achievements, trophies, 100% etc. Most of these games are really worth to play, but that depends of course what are you looking for. I think Hitman series is actually nice for INTJ, you have to think about how to eleminate your targets without any alarms etc. Other series are really good as well, just ask about something and I'll try answer.

My Steam ID is "Kamfeth" if author of the topic is interested :>

I'll just list the games I like. Plenty of INTJs aren't even into video games so it seems pointless to generalize any connection between a game and INTJness, and I don't like some of the ones others have listed.

I like:
Rift
Dragon Age Inquisition
Shadows of Mordor
Guitar Hero 3
Prey
Killzone (all of them)
Battlefield 3 and 4 (the only pvp multiplayer I like. Destroying environments makes things strategically more difficult and interesting).
WoW (hate myself a little for listing it)
Civilization (I liked 4 the best)
Ghost Recon (Future soldier was pretty fun)
Fable
Zelda (Ocarina of Time is my favorite)
Darksiders 2
Mass Effect trilogy
Saints Row (all of them, hilarious)
Mercinaries
Spec Ops: The Line


I like a little of everything except racing games and sports games.

Is there a reason you prefer single player games over multiplayer?

Originally the guy before you, but I can see your list of games fits the question as well.

so why single player?
Just happens that way, not out of preference for one or the other specifically. I like MMO's and play them quite a bit, and BF is multiplayer. Its the multiplayer aspects that I enjoy there. People are stupid, though, so I have to really like the concepts to tolerate the stupid and the teenagers and the noobs. Sometimes single players can feel too linear or too repetitious, whereas I can play the same map in BF4 100 times and it will still be different and interesting.

Do you have a preference? What are your favorite games?

I know the majority of you play video games, don't lie to me! Even if it is basic crap on your phone I want to know about it.

So what video games do you play and why is it good for your INTJ-self?
Currently I'm playing (PC) The Talos Experiment, Torchlight II, and (Xbox 360) Street Fighter X Tekken.

The Talos Experiment- feeds my need to figure things out, and adore all the geeky things in it.

Torchlight II- great "filler" game, as TTE can make me a bit nauseous and I refuse to turn down the speed.

Street Fighter X Tekken- this is our family game. I love fighting games...helps to get out all my frustrations when constantly asked "Are you OK?", "Are you mad?", etc.

The question about single player games:
I can, have, and will play MMO games (ultima online is the best game IMO), but I loathe having to follow/wait for people, hear them whine, and usually am more efficient at figuring out the game and running by myself. The only person I've successfully ran with is my husband (ENTP) and even then it was short burst and off I went on my merry way. :)

I really enjoy "World of Warcraft" and "Star Wars: the Old Republic". They are good for my INTJ-self because they allow me to be in full control and offer solo-PvE as well as leveling - which is what I like. I don't enjoy playing/teaming with others, but I like that they are MMORPG's none the less. I like the look of them as well.

I'm going to pimp out my favorite old school game, Chip's Challenge. You can get the original AND Chip's Challenge 2 on steam. It's a wonderful tile-based logic and strategy game that has been around since 1989. It's simplistic and complex all at the same time.

The premise of the game is that you are a nerd named Chip navigating your way through Melinda the Mental Marvel's clubhouse. You have to collect computer chips and solve increasingly complex puzzles in order to complete each level. It's a great way to waste your weekend.
