Need your help fellow Polynauts regarding my thesis study!!!

Hey fellow Polynauts!

Some of you may know me from the PD, my name is Rowan. I am currently doing a thesis study on video games for my master's degree in Mediastudies. This study concerns video game realism & enjoyment while playing FPS-games, more specific the singleplayer campaign of Call of Duty Ghosts and Bioshock Infinite.

Many previous studies regarding video games always emphasise the negative effects video games have. With this in mind I want to stress that my study isn't like that at all. I want to get the opinion of the gamer and stress that their opinion also matters.

This research is about two different games, so there are also two seperate surveys which ask the same things: the motivation for playing the game, the perceived realism of the game & the enjoyment of playing the game. Can I ask you guys to fill in one or both surveys (which only takes about 5-10min to finish per survey) ?

This the link for Call of Duty: Ghosts:

This is the link for Bioshock Infinite:

Quenstions or feedback regarding the study or surveys are always welcome.

Thank you in advance and have a nice day!

Kind regards,

Rowan a.k.a. Dante1992

(PS: this thread is approved by Shaun, thanks again Shaun!)
