Those who play shooters on a desktop already know that there is a considerable variety for how one can position him or herself. Let’s say that there are supposedly eight basic ways, m’kay?
This image originally debuted a while back in Japan, but is once again making the internet rounds. It shows eight (count ’em, eight) different styles to play first-person shooters.
According to the above image, they apparently are: Standard, Arrow Key Style, Inverted V Shape Style, Russian Style, Crossed Legs Style, V Shape Style, Glaring Style and Mongolian Style.
To be honest, I’m not quite sure what’s so Russian about “Russian Style” (do Russian players usually put the keyboard on their laps?) or why using a gamepad and a mouse is “Mongolian Style”. The other styles seem to be self-explanatory, however.
Which one best describes your play style?
