Dear gamers,

Our research team is conducting an online study to understand the features of intergenerational play between people aged 55+ and their family members aged 15+. This study is financially supported by one of the eight National Centres of Excellence (NCE) work projects as part of a large NCE grant from 2015-2020 for $36.6 million (http://agewell-nce.ca).

If you are aged 55 and over, and have played digital games with your children, grandchildren, nephews, or nieces, please click the following URL link to complete the online survey:
https://sfu.fluidsurveys.com/s/intergenerationplay-OlderAdul...

If you are aged 15 and over, and have played digital games with your parents, grandparents, uncles, or aunts, please click the following URL link to complete the online survey:
https://sfu.fluidsurveys.com/s/intergenerationplay-Young/

If you wish, you can provide your contact information at the end of the survey to enter a draw for three cash prizes of $100.

This study was approved by the Office of Research Ethics SFU.

Sincerely,
Emily Chow, PhD, Post-Doctoral Scholar, Faculty of Education, Simon Fraser University, Canada

Some of us (perhaps particularly gamers) prefer the word 'older'. (Yes, I know, ironic given my username)

Good luck with your research.

This is a very interesting comment. Some people replied to my posted and said that "55" is not old.

It's all relative, isn't it?

I wish I could take your survey, since I mostly play (and greatly prefer) digital versions of board games. But I don't play with younger folk, so not in your interest group. I do hope you'll publish a summary of the results, though.

That would be me as well, and in fact I found it insulting to say "old adults" and "your old family members." Quite frankly, I think your study is already off to a bad start if that's how you think because you're starting with a faulty premise.

Thanks for you comment! We use "old" and "young" to differ two different demographics: people who play digital games with their children/grandchildren and people who play digital games with their parents/grandparents.

I have to admit that I was shocked by some of the questions, namely the premise that children aged 15+ might need an older person to "guide [them] how to play digital games" or "explain game elements or game mechanisms" to them. We are talking about teenagers and young adults, here. These are people who've been playing digital games since they were old enough to hold a controller or press keyboard buttons.

Later questions ask about my own well-being, but those seem more appropriate to people much older--perhaps in their 70s or 80s: "my family really tries to help me" and "I get the emotional help and support I need from my family" don't seem to target people in their mid-50s, who, unless they have health problems, are not much different than they were in their 30s and 40s.

Hi, thanks very much for your suggestion!
I revised the post and deleted the confusing words of "old" and "young".

Thanks again!
Emily
