Default What Kind of a Player Are You?

I recently started a thread on GNS theory, and began to wonder what kind of RPG player each member of CotI considers him- or her-self to be -- Gamist, Narrativist or Simulationist.

Gamists prefer to make in-game decisions based on what will most effectively solve the situations posed by the referee.

Narrativists prefer to make in-game decisions based on what would best further a dramatic story or address a central theme within the adventure.

Simulationists prefer to make in-game decisions based on what would be most realistic or plausible within the game's setting, on how the rules try to simulate the way that things work in that world, or at least the way that they could be thought of working.

Please take the survey, and leave comments in this thread.

Thank you,

"Keklas! What is your payoff in playing the role of Referee?"
"To challenge my friends, to see them playing before me, and to hear the lamentations of their characters."
