Creator types


NCSoft designer Marek Bronstring has posted an opinion piece about four different types of Player/Creators at Gamasutra. As the title suggests, he has been inspired by Richard Bartle’s MMORPG player taxonomy, but his piece focuses on how different players approach games that offer them some opportunity to create their own gameplay.

His categories are a little blurry and I think the system would benefit from including the group of people that don’t have any interest in creating their own content, but as a starting point for further discussion it goes a long distance, and could be very helpful when trying to get games with built-in authoring tools appeal to everyone.
