Which video game character are you? [take this test]

question people

Greetings NAG Online readers, and welcome to the only clickbait quiz you’ll ever need to take. You may have seen these types of quizzes on Facebook; what kind of shoe are you, which World War I fighter plane best matches your personality, which arctic mammal should you take on a date, etc. Those quizzes are, quite clearly, unequivocal loads of crap.

This one is different. Based in pure scientific method, with a 100% accuracy record (sample size: 1) and a series of questions which have been refined and perfected over the course of several minutes. I need to warn you – you may discover things about yourself you do not like, perhaps did not wish to know. I take zero responsibility for blown minds – all keyboards ruined by leaking brains are replaced at your own expense. Right, now that the legal stuff is out of the way, hit the jump. If you dare. And, as always, let me know which character you got in the comments.


Despite it’s internal complexity, taking this test is pretty straightforward. Next to each answer you’ll see a points rating. These points in no way reflect the awesomeness of the answer, they’re just part of my system – you wouldn’t understand, it’s got to do with like science and shit. Anyway, simply add up the points rating of all your answers and see which character best suits your personality below. Good luck!

Right, work out your score by adding up the points assigned to each answer and adding them up, then see where you fit in below.


25-28 points – Kratos

When confronted with a problem you don’t understand (read: all problems), you tend to hit it with something large to see if that works. Failing that, cutting it in half is always an option. You enjoy long massacres on the beach and romantic, candlelit skull-crushing.

Your friends describe you as “stubborn” yet energetic and always up for a drink. Just kidding, you killed all your friends; they don’t say anything at all.

19 – 24 points – Gordon Freeman

There literally isn’t a problem you don’t understand or can’t solve, up to and including the complete interstellar occupation of Earth. While your brain is your best asset, you’re not averse to the tried-and-tested method of hitting something/someone until it agrees with you.

Your friends describe you as introverted, but loyal. Just kidding, you don’t have any friends. Nobody wants to go drinking with a bearded Helen Keller who compulsively hops around the room whenever they’re trying to talk to you.

12 – 18 points – Professor Layton

Your parents raised you to be a gentleman and a scholar, and you believe there’s no place for violence in a civilised world. You love finding solutions to problems and unravelling mysteries, but somehow think that you can solve a murder with recycled thought experiments and children’s riddles.

Your friends describe you as “hands-on”, which is somewhat disturbing considering your only friend is a young child.

11 or less – That Moron from Hatoful Boyfriend

You’re an idiot. You may also be actively psychotic, the narrative isn’t clear. Either you’re someone who believes you go to a school for talking pigeons, or you actually do go to a school for talking pigeons – neither option is particularly impressive. You tend to try and solve problems that don’t exist, and clean your dishes in a washing machine. Did I mention you’re an idiot?

Your friends were too busy shitting on each other and squabbling over breadcrumbs to describe you, because they’re f**king pigeons.
