Gaming Research Survey


#1

Hi

My name is Frances Perrett, and I’m a Computer Science student at the University of York in the UK. I’m currently working on my Master’s project, and as part of my project I am running a survey. My aim is to try and understand how different gaming experiences affect each other. The amazing administrators of your forum have been kind enough to let me post an advert for my survey here, which I’m incredibly thankful for. The survey takes 10-20 minutes to complete. I hope that as many of you (from the Shoryuken community) as possible take part in the survey, as I want the results to be as reliable and applicable as possible, and in order to do that I need a broad range of people to take part. So if you haven’t played a fighting game for a while, or haven’t completed whatever game you’re currently playing, then that’s totally fine, and I’m still more than happy to hear from you.

Once the survey is closed, I’d be more than happy to discuss the results in full here as well, if anyone’s interested in that.

You can find the questionnaire here:

All the best, Frances Perrett, University of York

FAQs:

What does the first question mean?

I’ve had some questions about the first question. It can be any game at all, doesn’t have to be GAME. It’s asking about the most recent game you played in your last gaming session.

What personal details are required?

The only personal details asked are about age range, gender, country and at the end it asks for an email, but these are all completely optional questions that you don’t have to answer.

Why are some questions so similar?

I’m currently using two pre-validated questionnaires which may have some cross-over. I wish there was some way to reduce the amount of questions, but I need to run an analysis on repeated questions in this section first. It’s something I hope to improve in the future.

Will I get to see the results?

Yes. My project report will be in English and released around January, and there’s a place to drop your email at the end of the survey if you’d like to read the entire thing. But I’ll be posting my results to all the subreddits and forums that have allowed me to post asking for participants within two weeks of the survey closing.

What’s your favourite game?

So no-one’s actually asked me this, but at the moment I’m playing a lot of Pixel Dungeon, and really love Oxenfree and Night in the Woods.

Guys, he PMed before he posted it. Has nothing to do with FGC stuff information, just general gaming. Help him out if you can.

Submitted, good luck with your degree :+1:

One thing, you didn’t ask was what difficulty setting was selected for the game. Since my masters I play far less games but one thing I still do is only ever play games on the hardest setting, I don’t find it rewarding or worth the time otherwise (provided the game isn’t broken).
