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.

Done and done, however my given data may be skewed due to my current not usual state. Also my hours gaming isn't consistent as I'm one of the community managers for the official Australian Rooster Teeth fan group called Roo Teeth and I do the game nights for them. Good luck with your research

Part of the study is tracking how many hour you play video games in a month and linking your gamertag to Raptr allows me to do so. If you already have an account, feel free to use that.

Done, looking forward to results, hopefully it'll confirm that we play video games to improve our ability to hurt people in real life that video games are fun!

Finished. Glad to help out someone with their dissertation, especially since I'm currently waiting to hear back for grad school apps in economics. Give me a few years and I'll be in your shoes. Best of luck to you!
