Hi there, Do you think the study is inherently flawed simply because it is looking at esports? Whether you agree or disagree with the term, what is undeniable is that it is an incredibly popular pastime. One with all kinds of interesting behaviour attached to it.
Hi, I’m lucky enough to be studying games for a living, at the moment I’m part of a scientific research project looking at eSports. I hope that by doing this research I can help make eSports and other game-related gambling a more relevant and researched subject in the scientific world. I’ve made a survey which can be found here: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3097094/video-games-and-gambling After completing the survey, you will be asked if you want to be entered into a prize draw where we will raffle 5 x $50 worth of games from a digital distributor of your choice (GOG, Steam etc.) the winners will get to choose their own games. Completing the survey takes around 15-20 minutes. This is a non-commercial study (no outside corporate funding) and is conducted at the University of Tampere’s Game Research Lab in Finland. All responses to the survey are greatly appreciated, as is sharing this anywhere you think would be good! Cheers, Y0k3lb0y
