My fellow gamers, my name is J. aka UltpervJiraiya or simply Jiraiya around my friends. I am currently doing a research on fighting games and posting a survey to other fighting game players. If you are interested in participating in the survey, this is how you reply:
- Your current age, gender, and nationality/ethinicity.
- Your first/oldest/earliest fighting game you’ve played and where (game - console - year)?
- What/why/how you got into fighting games.
- Your current favorite fighting game that you’re really good at. (plus chara that you use)
For example: (this is my response)
- 26 Male Filipino
- Urban Champion in Famicom back in '86 from the Philippines.
- Its my way of venting out and love the feel of the competition of wits, skill, strategy.
- King of Fighters XI, Capcom Vs. SNK2, Samurai Spirits II - Kyo, Iori, and Haohmaru.
If you are in the Mid-west area and know/able to go to Anime Central '07 (www.acen.org) in Rosemont, IL, I will be hosting “The Fighting Game Panel”; discussing a wide range of topics regarding about fighting games and also co-hosting with Cactusmomma in her SNK panel. Also coordinating (possibly) with BakaOrochi in the fighting game tourney in the convention. So if any of you are able to go, that would be great to meet all of you and maybe play casual games. It will be fun.
I will be using the result of this survey in my discussion and to those who participated will be greatly appreciated and I will include your forum name (unless you want to let me use your real name) in the research paper and will be credited in the compilation. In the future, I will do a compilation of my discussion and will be posted online (I will let you guys know where I will post it). And to those would/can come, maybe you can help me host the panel as well (doing interviews on who can host the panel with me including with my friends), if you’re interested please let me know ASAP.
Well, I thank all of you who are willing to participate in this survey.
And hopefully I would get to see you any (if not all) in ACEN’07.
Thanks again and keep on fighting!
