Assuming you mean "what are the different personas of gamers?", here is a start. You can take this as a start then validate with your marketing team - they surely use personas in marketing, and likely have actual data to help inform the personas.
Hardcore gamer: male, 14-18, plays multiple consoles frequently with the same group of friends. Plays 5 hours on weekdays and 10 hours on weekends.
Noob: male or female, playing the game when visiting their hardcore gamer relative
Casual: Adult who has the latest console and plays a couple of hours a week.
With personas, you can design tests to appeal to each type of persona. For example, the hardcore gamer is going to skip the tutorials and jump right in. While the noob will likely spend all the time in the introductory sections.
Hope this helps get you started.
