Call for Respondents: Survey on Attitudes to Videogames

Soumia Medjahed, a doctoral candidate at Cardiff University, is seeking participants in an online survey as part of her ongoing PhD research in Critical and Cultural Theory. The project looks at videogames and the experiences they provide as a form of interactive fiction. The survey (link below) aims to capture attitudes towards videogames in general, as well as identifying the relationship between gaming demographics and gaming habits, preferences, opinions, and the way respondents define, categorise and experience a particular genre. However, participants do not need to be active players of videogames to respond.

Participation in this survey is completely voluntary and all of responses are anonymous. To take the survey, please click on the following link:
