Twitter Takes On – The Variety Gamer Score

I spend far too much time on Twitter. Not only is it my main way of keeping in touch with all of my pocket friends, I’m also following a bunch of gaming related topics, bloggers, and content creators. When you consider that most of my friends are nerds, well, it means an awful lot of gaming-related stuff shows up on my feed pretty regularly.

The other day, the thing making the rounds was a checklist style image with a bunch of game franchises listed along under the question of “What is your variety gamer score?”. Normally, I adore these kinds of lists, but as I looked over this one, I felt a little overlooked as someone who has spent her entire life with the PC being my primary gaming platform. My score was a rather low 24, but I felt like for me, as a PC gamer, there were a lot of pretty serious omissions on the original list.

The original Variety Gamer Score template that was on my Twitter timeline recently.

So I did what anyone with strong opinions and way too much time on their hands would do – I made my own list of 100 video game franchises that – to me – felt less console-centric. Which means now, it’s probably PC-centric, but hey, at least now there’s one for both types of gamers. Obviously, there’s some overlap, but I definitely feel like I replaced some smaller franchises with some ones that a lot of people will be a bit more familiar with. Or maybe it’s just me, and that’d be ok too.

My version of the Variety Gamer Score checklist.

Does either of these lists speak to you more than the other? Leave me a comment or tag me on Twitter (@OhaiKrikket) with your Variety Gamer Score (and let me know which version you’re using)!
