Play Games for Science!I got approval for my dissertation and I'm ready to rock! Below is the official flyer to for my research as well as the link to the study. Thank you for your support!

There are many misconceptions about gamers and gaming and by participating in this study, you will be helping science to separate the myths from the facts, the cake from the lie.

In order to participate in this study, you will need to:

- Be 18 years of age or older
- Have access to
*A gaming console (i.e. Xbox 360, PS3, Wii)
*Your own online handle (such as an XBL gamertag or PSN ID)
*Online gaming account (i.e., Xbox Live Gold)
*A Raptr account

If you do not currently have a Raptr account, you can sign up for one here.

Participants will be asked to sign an informed consent form, complete a questionnaire - which will take between 20 and 30 minutes - and to share their Raptr account username. Thats it!

After 30 days, participants will be asked to fill out a follow-up survey.

All information provided by the participant will be kept confidential and participants may terminate their participation in this study at any time, for any reason, without punishment or reprisal.

This study has been certified by the Institutional Review Board of Argosy University, Washington DC, for the period February 11, 2012, to February 10, 2013.

Participants who complete the initial survey will be entered into a random drawing for one of four $60 Amazon.com gift card. If you complete the follow up survey, you will earn a second entry into the drawing.

If you meet the requirements listed above and are ready to get started, click here.

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please feel free to email me at: goosechecka@gmail.com

Thank you!

I feel like I'm back at school!

I've sharpened all of my pencils and eaten all of the glue.

What do now?

Does PC and Steam count as a console and gamer ID? I do have Raptr as well.

I don' t think steam does, but I know Raptr can track PC games. So yes, PC definitely counts as long as your Raptr is hooked up to record when you play.

I just figured I'd throw Steam out there for the "ID" portion of it, because it's a dedicated name like it would be on XBL or the PSN, just on my computer. But yeah, Raptr does everything and even tweets once a day what I played in the last 24 hours, so I can go ahead and sign my...

As an engineer I would love to sign up. I've had lengthy conversations with my peers about how video games can be a wonderful mind setter. Everyone has their "escapes", some are books, or tv shows. My escape is video games.

Look forward to it. Good topic for a dissertation btw.

Question 58 on the second page, the word "enjoy" is mispelled.

I recently got my Masters after conducting research on correctional officers. I wish my data was gathered as easy as you. My IRB was a bitch, not to mention third party agencies. I wish you the best of luck with this.

Fixed they typo. I'm very lucky that I was able to collect data this way and I think IRB's a bitch no matter what you're doing!

I feel like the quiz was patronizing me, asking me the same questions with different words, I'm on to you questionnaire!! Hope you get [enough money to last you forever] from the government. This is way better than giving dolphins hand jobs.

Done! I just hope I didn't misunderstand some questions (as i'm not a native english-speaker, and don't speak it fluently). Anyway, I had fun filling it.
