Hey everyone,

I'm doing a small research project at UC Berkeley, and could use your help filling out a quick survey. It's about games. C'mon, you know you want to...

https://goo.gl/forms/gN3WOOftgv0gvt6i2

Pass it on to anyone you think would be interested. It takes between 5-10 minutes to fill out, and it's anonymous (an email is just used for login, nothing more).

I appreciate the help. Thanks again!

Maybe you could explain a little more what the survey consists of and what it's for. A little background would make me a bit more willing. I'd be happy to help.

Mostly your gaming background, opinions on Magic, Catan, D&D initially and over time, etc. There's all of three pages to it.

Yeah.

Google account required.

I'd have to really really want to do it. Whenever I need a google account, I make one up for that one use.

UC Berkeley huh?

You think you're better than me?

Lol @ "What's your first impression of Magic: The Gathering?

Seemed dangerous, leading to bad activities"

I also agree.. what's this for?

Hi again,

A few of you have asked what the survey is for – sorry for not explaining that more thoroughly.

This is for both a Research Methods class and an Honors Thesis class, within my major at UC Berkeley, Media Studies. I've been tailoring most of my studies toward my main interest, games & gaming, and this project is no exception. I'm just trying to get a sense of what factors may cause an individual's impression of a game to change over time, so I ask the same general questions about three games, then get some demographic data.

The Google account info is just for login purposes, and won't be stored.

Depending on how the project goes, I'll try to share any insights here. Also, feel free to share the survey link – anyone who's heard of the games, even if they aren't an active gamer, would be interesting to hear from.

Thanks!

Sure, but it's still saying I can't take the survey without logging in with a google account.

Really? I've had a large number of people answer the poll without having a Google account – they've just used other emails (or made one up).

If you can participate, I'd appreciate it. The data from the survey is coming together in some interesting ways, but more responses means better results.

Thanks,
