Hm, I think there was a question on there that asked "What type of games do you play most?" and the answers available were something like Mobile, Tablet, full-retail console, downloadable on PC. It seemed odd to me there was no "downloadable on console" option (unless I completely scanned over it). Most of my money over the past few years has shifted to XBLA titles, with full-retail discs relegated to Xmas/bday/rental/borrow status.
This topic is locked from further discussion.
First off, I understand this was probably a nightmare to put together, so the following constructive criticism is offered with that in mind:
That was really long, and kind of confusing at points. You might consider taking some of the results with a grain of salt due to unwieldy question wording. For example, on one of the "how often" questions, the buttons skip from "once a month" to "several times a week." And in the genre question, there wasn't any turn-based strategy category. There was no entry for downloadable console games. And it was ambiguous what you meant by "full retail" vs. "downloadable" PC games. If it's a game I can get in a box, but I downloaded it, which is it?
I hope you get a chance to tune this up and trim the fat, too, because I wouldn't mind filling it out periodically if it weren't so long. And some of the stuff is time sensitive (last 6 months/next 6 months purchasing kind of depends on what's coming out).
"Thinking about the games you are currently playing, in which genre category are they?"
I've been playing Professor Layton and the Curious Village, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, and The Walking Dead.
I guess I put them under " Action-Adventure (e.g. Assassin’s Creed, Grand Theft Auto, Uncharted, etc.) "?
The next closest category is " Casual games (e.g. Angry Birds, Bejeweled, etc.) " BAH!
There wasn't a category for turn based strategy games. Interesting.
Wow, you weren't kidding that it was a giant form--took me about half an hour, although I did kind of enjoy it. Nice to know my metrics are ending up somewhere where it actually matters and is being looked at.
Best question-combo-setup in there: "Do you watch live streams?" "Do you like watching gaming live streams?" "Do you know what eSports is?" "Are you interested in eSports?" "Why or why not?"
It had the 'leading questions' feel of the captain from Airplane:
Captain: You ever been in a cockpit before?
Joey: No sir, I've never been up in a plane before.
Captain: You ever seen a grown man naked?
