Scene: BOB and FRED are sat on a sofa with two Xbox 360 controllers. Bob is running around with a controller making airplane noises.

Bob: rrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeewwwww.

Fred: What are you doing?

Bob: Winning the war against terror my friend ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah (in an airport voice) Target neutralised awaiting new orders

Fred: And how exactly are you doing that

Bob: In my bomber, I've just taken out an enemy power station and now my team can commence the bombing of the enemies hideout. (in airport voice) understood, commencing attack

Fred: so I see you've found today's game which for the viewers at home and welcome to scripted gamer by the way is tom Clancy's H.A.W.X 2 which is a flight action game

Bob: Yeah itís well good.

Fred: I'm not so sure you see

Bob: You can fly the plane with your controller...whatís not to like

Fred: of course you use your controller to fly you use your controller for every game

Bob: no you don't get it. The motion thing that the controllers have

Fred: you mean the six axis

Bob: well if you wanna get all technical then yeah what you said. It means that you tilt the controller and the plane tilts

Fred: that sounds kinda cool I suppose, but I'd imagine that that would be quite hard to get to grips with

Bob: if you're a posh idiot maybe but the hardcore gamers like myself itís easy. Besides you can turn it off if you don't like it

Fred: It sounds like just another flying sim to me

Bob: Itís totally not. You can do the story which is epic and involves dogfights, bombings, finding targets, eliminating threats, betrayal. Itís like playing Top Gun! Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

Fred: I don't know

Bob: look you know the way you feel about chocolate covered sugar sprinkled pancakes

Fred: well yes i do rather like my pancakes

Bob: Well thatís how I feel about this game!

Fred: You want to eat it all and not share with anyone else?

Bob: Alright itís not exactly how I feel about this game but you know what I mean.

Fred: But when we got the game you thought it was going to be rubbish too

Bob: That is true, I admit. I judged a book by its cover

Fred: Itís a game not a book

Bob: You enjoy being all uppity sometimes don't you?

Fred: a little

Bob: I meant I thought it was gonna be rubbish, I didn't like the cover and I haven't liked a flight sim since ace combat on the ps one. But I was proved wrong. The game is honestly really really good fun

Fred: Well ummm that says it all really doesn't it

Bob: now can I go back to pretending to be in a plane please

Fred: oh ok

Bob: NNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEWWWWWW BOOOOOOOM (airport voice) yes sir I was getting some idiot interference, but itís passed now

Fred: well that told me. Never judge a game by itís cover. We've been the scripted gamers goodnight

With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.

But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.

What sort of gamer are you?

Our columnists each focus on a particular perspective and fall into one of the following types of gamers:
