Morning Pit, I would greatly appreciate it if anyone who doesn't play video games regularly could complete my survey for my Media coursework.

It takes less than 5 minutes and I only need 30 responses.

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: The URL no longer works as I've filled my sample size, thanks for the help people!

This is maybe the worst comparison in the history of comparisons.

I guess I just didn't want to put a concrete 'Do you play video games? Yes or No' because a lot of people might play the odd game now and then, but not enough to constitute themselves as gamers.

I'd define a gamer as someone who plays video game regularly. Apologies though, I understand that it's not the best or most well though out questionnaire

EDIT: It appears I have reached my 30 person sample target, thanks muchly people! would have been a nightmare to print them off and hand them out to people!

Can you post the questions here TS?

The survey's closed, and I'm curious as to what the questions were!

1. Are you male of female? (please tick)
[X] Male [ ] Female

2. How old are you?
[ ] 15-19 [X] 20-34 [ ] 35-44 [ ] 50+

3. Do you play videogames?
[X] Yes [ ] No

4. If no, what genre of videogames do you feel has the worst reputation? (please tick, not limited to one answer)
[X] FPS [ ] Sport [ ] RPG [ ] MMO [ ] Racing
[ ] other (please specify: …………………………….)

Largely due to the amount of "smack talk" that you hear online.

5. Is there a particular game/series you dislike the most?
[ ] No [X] Yes (please specify: It's a tie between games like CoD and Fifa, where it seems each annual release is less a new game, and more of a slight update to the previous one with a fresh 40 quid sticker on it)

6. Do you think games like ‘World of Warcraft’ etc. are addictive and potentially dangerous?
[X] Yes [ ] No

Addictive? Yes. Potentially dangerous? No - I think that the kind of personality that would ignore the rest of their life for a game would find something to fill that space. Be it an MMO, or some other activity.

7. Do you think that modern videogames can be far too graphic and violent?
[X] Yes [ ] No

But don't get me wrong, I have no issue with the level of violence. The issue lies with parents disregarding the age ratings given, and buying little 12 year old Johnny "Grand Theft Auto - kill-spree hooker muder" despite the rating clearly being 18+

8. Which major videogame company do you consider to be the most reputable?
[ ] Sony [ ] Microsoft [X] Nintendo

9. In conjunction with your answer to question 8, why do you think this?

Mostly due to it's "family friendly" ethos, in getting families to game together with it's Wii console, and releasing games that are brilliant, without resorting to the gritty realism tha the rest of the industry seems to be obsessed with.


I know you've got enough responses for what you need, but I couldn't resist!

Because my study is about how video games are represented in the media, I though that theoretically, someone who is not very familiar with video games is more likely to have an opinion based on what they have seen/heard about the games rather than hands-on experience with the games themselves.

Although I could be horribly wrong of course.

It seems silly to have the question "Are you a gamer?" in the survey, then.

And yes, you'd run a very high chance of all gamers basically answering "Nah, man, parents just don't understand", but your results would probably benefit from having opinions from both sides.
#22
People who aren't gamers do not understand the acronyms for FPS, MMO, and RPG. That was a little misstep on your part there dude.
