I've made a survey that tells you what type of gamer personality you are. Are you an Immersion Engineer, or an Escape Artist? Do you battle with real people or seclude to the shadows in a world of your own making?
The reason why I made it is to gather research on people's gaming behaviours. This study for my masters thesis at The University of Sydney. Now as a gamer myself (WoW Heroic Tomb of Sargaras Raider), I feel like I have a good grasp of the gaming community, but as with all things, you need to do the research to confirm/disconfirm these assumptions.
The survey itself is looking to explore information about:
Different aspects of your personality
What video games you play
How much you play by yourself and with other people
The impacts of your video game use on your daily life
You can find a link to the survey and more information here (you might need to disable adblocker):
So let me know what you think. Do you think I guessed right? What did I miss?
One more thing. A survey like this is limited, and doesn't give people a voice to add what they want to say. I really encourage open opinions about the video game community and maybe how the news and public have a negative view of video games. Whenever I present, I add the personal messages people have sent me to encourage other researchers to remember that we are people too, not just numbers. Tell me what you think and let me know if I can share your comments in my presentations.
I only play Diablo 3 and i play solo cos on ps4 you must pay to play on mulitplayer. I play at morning or at evening when kids and wife sleeps. This gives me 5 hours or less playtime, each day is different. I sleep too, i am not that kind of nolifer who plays all night, i have real life too.
interesting study, of course the feedback in the end has issues, but thats something you stated beforehand. just a piece of advise from me, try to promote your survey in other sites as well so you get more hits(if you already havent).
Yes, it's interesting study. I'm also interested in its results. I think that games positively affect a person, as they develop non-standard thinking and creative skills. At Assignment.EssayShark resource I collected information for my research, which help me in determining which games are positively affecting people. The so-called useful games: subject-manipulative - help to get the basics of driving, controlling the aircraft; quests - develop creative abilities, logical and imaginative thinking when performing tasks in the game, as well as standard games on the computer - help to distract and relax.
