After suffering through 18 years of sharing my gaming systems with my little bro. I finally escaped from his "perfectionist" ways. The guy could mess with customizable anything for days. Serious. Whether it was the costumes and look of his CAW character on No Mercy on the N64, or endlessly shuffling through the possible tactics of his party on Dynasty Warriors Tactics. The kid just loves to micromanage. And don't even get me started on racing games. He will fine tune a car's infinite specs to death. And everytime I go over to his house and play, I revisit the past as he decides to take some time to show me "different builds" or demonstate the difference that 3 degrees makes on a turn. But I was free when I moved out. Until my children started playing video games... I love the little guys and it excites me more than anything that we can share this past time, but I seriously spent 45 minutes watching my sons dress/undress/decorate/undecorate/etc. their puppets on LBP. I'll be honest. I'm a meat and potatoes gamer. I like the raw viscera, the battles, the moments where I realize that I've been holding my breath. Only on a rare occasion, do I find myself pawing through menus and tweaking characters in order to get that extra 5% of attack bonus or damage, or get that perfect look that's going to have all the baddies falling over dead before I even prep a weapon. So what's your pref? And what's the last game you caught yourself obsessing over the minutia? Me? I've been scratching at a FF12 replay and that game always catches me switching weapons/armor and buying licenses in the most efficient, metagame way.
