Of course you like filling out forms! Who doesn't? I was in a meeting the other day and the stat tracking audience measurement dude was talking about how they knew all this stuff about who goes to GameSpot and how useful it is and all that and I got to thinking... do they know that same stuff about the people who visit Giant Bomb? So I asked... and they didn't! So, in a bit of a "be careful what you ask for" moment, I was presented with this HUGE survey. Seriously, it's pretty long and mad detailed. I was given a chance to add a few questions, but I've been completely buried in review work this week and didn't really have time to add anything. All my questions would have been extremely dumb in an effort to offset the extremely not-dumb nature of the existing questions, anyway.

So we've got this survey right here:

If you've got time, would you mind filling it out? It's mostly to satisfy my own curiosity, but it's also one of those demographic things that help create stories like "Giant Bomb users buy more video games than the average gaming website person" or "Giant Bomb users typically use the Internet while nude" or "Giant Bomb users are smarter than the users of these other gaming websites." I suspect all three of these things are true, but only you can tell me if I am right or if I am wrong! So, if you've got the time, please get in there and tell us the truth about your wants, desires, and brand affinities!

I love forms because I am a form! I don't sit nude though, I keep it form-al. Alright, lets do this...

#14 Posted by fiddlecub (13 posts) -

I came for the form. Stayed because you said "nude."

@Jeff said:

"Giant Bomb users typically use the Internet while nude"

Usually, it's only when there are surveys involved.

Will you be sharing the findings with the users later on? I find that stuff really interesting.

#16 Posted by Vaancor (258 posts) -

I'm gonna fill it out so hard it won't walk straight for a week!

It's like he knew I was reading this with my pants down.

#19 Posted by GuardianKnux (315 posts) -

No prob chief-duder. Filling out ASAP!

#20 Posted by TheAdmin (856 posts) -

Why is Casual and Indie Games considered the same thing? Is Torchlight 2 isn't casual Minecraft isn't casual...

#21 Posted by Atwa (823 posts) -

On it! 

#22 Posted by Apocralyptic (233 posts) -

Online demographic surveys are one of the ways we can "give back" to the community. It's called "citizenship", people.

#23 Posted by Forcen (2132 posts) -

Please share some of the stats later if you can!

#24 Posted by KILLER_CATT (69 posts) -

Ofc! Will do it right away! ;)

#25 Posted by tsiro (222 posts) -

I love data! I hope we get to see (some of) the results! I wonder how this site compares to other video game sites...

#26 Posted by kennybaese (714 posts) -

Done. I was told there was a big prize. If I don't win said prize (or if I'm not satisfied with its largeness) I'm never reading this site again.

#28 Edited by Vincenzo (166 posts) -

That was a long ass survey. So yeah. More eSports, more gaming programming, more GiantBomb

What is the "big prize" we could win?

#29 Posted by BaroqueSampson (8 posts) -

Done and done.

#30 Posted by NoobSauceG7 (1332 posts) -

Forms are fun to fill out for some reason. This one was quite the long one!

#31 Posted by CannonGoose (387 posts) -

No ska option in the favourite music section... Why am I even completing this form?

#32 Posted by cloudymusic (1421 posts) -

Filled it out just for you, Jeff.

#33 Posted by Godmil (167 posts) -

Cripes, that was a long form.

#34 Posted by OneAndOnlyBigE (469 posts) -
@Jeff Happy to do so! Any chance of sharing the results at a later date?
#35 Posted by jon_e (33 posts) -

There wasn't a category for turn based strategy games. Interesting.

#36 Posted by strangeling (1296 posts) -

I enjoy a more voluptuous form. This one's rather two-dimensional.

#37 Posted by djhicks1 (176 posts) -

On it.

#38 Posted by JohnDudebro (955 posts) -

Attention everyone taking this survey: make sure to check "Adult Entertainment" under your favorite kind of apps. I want there to be official results declaring Giant Bomb users to be porn fiends.

#39 Posted by Wunder_ (1202 posts) -
#40 Posted by GuncannonD (29 posts) -

So, is there actually going to be a prize?

#41 Posted by Althox (319 posts) -

On it boss!

#42 Posted by Redhorn (231 posts) -

this... is long

#43 Posted by buhssuht (457 posts) -

that was longer than i thought

#44 Posted by Chuggsy (575 posts) -
@Jeff: I'm offended that Ska is not a favorite music genre option
#45 Posted by Rox360 (1120 posts) -

Done and done. That was quite the endurance run as far as surveys go!

#46 Posted by ptc (633 posts) -

Since I'm not a premium member, this is the least I could do. Very fair trade for the value I continue to get from giantbomb. Hope this helps!

#47 Posted by Virtua_Ben (144 posts) -

Done. Longer than expected, but I'll do almost anything for GB. That includes taking a meaningless survey.

#48 Posted by deano546 (191 posts) -

Man, that survey was long.

#49 Posted by NickDynmo (180 posts) -

Done, though in future surveys please provide "other" as an option for the gender question.

#50 Posted by dungbootle (2501 posts) -

I did it !!
