As I think about different styles of learning, I try to project what that means in terms of action games.
Before one can play a game, the set of given rules has to be learned, not in theory but in action. The mastery of it lies in the bending of them to personal gain and advantage. A perceived effortlessness. At first tiresome and heavy lifting becomes easier and more natural with the expierience that learning holds.
What are the different styles? I ask you.
Me, I go the way of the scar. It has to overwhelm me and leave a metaphorical mark on my memory. Something that says: "No! That's not the way to do it!" Learning by mistake. To sort out what doesn't work is a safe way to get to an understanding for me. On the other hand, I don't cherish repition. Say I had my fill in clearing Hard mode, I will take a step back from it and leave it alone for a while. When I get back to it, my expierience is still there, ensured by the "scars". I don't remember my failings exactly, but I can feel them when I get in contact with a situation. There is no room for obsession over several aspects in me. I don't think finding a one solution for all situations is a particular fun thing. I do my natural best not to overthink any challenge, yet to feel my way through. For even it's a fact that games are 0's and 1's and algorithms, I don't think it's best to perceive it that way. What I need from anything to hold my interest is a feeling that I can play around with internally.
How about you?
