Hi, the following is a request from someone doing research related to gaming. I thought some of you might be interested in checking out and/or participating in the research:
I am researching about video games for my PhD at Nottingtham Trent University. I would like to invite you to collaborate with the GTP project inviting gamers to answer a survey.
My research is about Game Transfer Phenomena (GTP).GTP is the transfer of video game experiences to the real world; like hearing, seeing or doing things in real life as in the video game.
In the first GTP study some players reported seeing text boxes above peoples’ heads, seeing images of video games when trying to sleep, looking for game pads in the air when something happened in real life, wanted to use video games elements in real life or suddenly doing a behaviour or action as in the video games without intending to do so.
The purpose of my project is to clarify and demystify players’ phenomenological experiences in order to maximize the benefits of interactive media, as well as to understand automatic mental, physiological and behaviour processes that can be relevant in different areas of the sciences.
You are welcome to participate in the survey, there you can read other players experiences and check if you have experienced GTP and what types.
The main results will be published in my blog. It takes approximately 10 minutes to complete the survey. Participants should be 18 years old or older.
You are welcome to visit my website where you can find more information about the GTP project, join my Facebook group and check out my blog.
PS. We (female gamers) are usually absent in research about video games. Please participate!
