It has been around four months for me struggling in this country. Soon I will face my first semester exam which means I am a quarter way done (sighing deeply). Anyway, I suddenly got hit by the fact that I have not played any video game for about four months and it brought good-old-days-memory storm to my mind. I used to play lots of video games especially RPG and MMORPG back then. I played MOBA too, though! Thus, questions came up: What is ENTPs’ most favorite class type in video games? Does our type influence our choices? I started to open the old files in my brain and found some dusty memories of video games that I have played and classes I chose. One thing, as long as I remembered, I’ve never played as priest or any supportive classes. Anyway, here they are!
Ragnarok Online (2003-2005)-Assassin
Stealthy, deadly, undetected and highly agile were the most features that I sought when I played Ragnarok Online in late 2003. For those reasons, I chose to play as thief which was later evolved into rogue then assassin. I think until now, the idea of killing people without being detected and the use of blades and katar are still very interesting to me. Even Assassin’s Creed is still one of my favorite franchise.
Rising Force (2005-2008)-Armor Rider
When the game was released, as usual, I looked for any stealthy class with dagger, hidden blades or anything related to assassin. Unfortunately, there was no such things in RF online. The stealthy assassins were replaced by rangers with rifles and I was not interested for the reasons I did not know. Thus, following my next obsession of Gundam, I chose Armor Rider from The Bellato Union. Evolved from Specialist which was similar to Craftsman or Smiths in other RPG, Armor Rider use two types of Massive Armor Units, Goliath the melee gorilla and Catapult the one with canon and heavy machine guns. I turned from a silent undetected killer into a notorious pilot with his giant robots who kills other races.
Defense of The Ancient (2004-2011)-Moghul Khan (Orc- Berserker)
I do not know how it was started but I turned into savage when I played DoTA several years ago. Instead of Riki or Mortred who are obviously stealthy and agile, my favorite was Axe, a tanker. That was the first time I enjoyed playing video game as a tank. Probably because Axe is a unique tanker with counter helix that deals damages as he gets hit by the enemies. A tank with auto-counter attack. He is untouchable.
The Elder Scroll V-Skyrim (2012-Now)-Stealth Archer
I turn my back into stealthy killing machine again, but now it comes with ranged weapon which makes me more difficult to be detected. Playing as archer in Skyrim is so much fun. You will enjoy killing various kinds of creatures in the universe from bandits to giants from distance. Watching them figuring out where the hell the arrows come from and finally die miserably. Further, you will be able to kill enemy with single shot which is good and bad. It is efficient but you don’t get lots of chances to develop your light armor ability. Overall, archer is lots of fun.
I tried to remember if I ever played as any kind of supportive class such as Cleric, Priest or any kind of healer but I have no memories about being someone who heals and gives lots of buff. Thus, I guess ENTPs are not interested in playing as support. We either stealth, go berserk, or deals an instant kill attack. I thought I have also played as Wizard for short period of time. How about you guys? What’s your class preference in video game?
