What Game Should You Play Based on Your Zodiac Sign?

For as individualistic as humans are, we sure like to put ourselves into boxes. Whether it’s your Myers-Briggs type, or your DiSC profile, or your Hogwarts house (*ahem* ten points to Gryffindor), I bet you know where you fit within multiple personality tests. Another tool often used in this fashion is the Western zodiac. Supposedly, we all carry certain characteristics, depending on the sign of our birth. Why don’t we see if we can use this information to predict your next favorite video game? This is all for fun, of course, and if you happen not to fit into your sign (I certainly don’t), then just play what you like.

Let us know in the comments—how accurate is your video game horoscope?
