Gamer 2012-2013 Survey

Posted Image

Hello people out there in web-world.

The New Year has arrived and PawByte and SuperLongName.com are conducting a quick survey among gamers about the gaming industry. The survey shouldn't take longer than 5 minutes and it's results will be published for free for all to see. My hope is that game developers, publishers and inventors will take the results of this survey and take another lens as to what gamers do, want and think.

If you have time and will like to contribute to the glorious gaming industry you can find the Survey here.

Thank you for your time.


Yours truly,


-Nathan

*So far about 150 results*

Please add your feedback though.

I submitted.. Though I had to change an answer, because I make games in my free time (so kind of a developer), but when you select that it's assumed you do it as a full time job.

Thanks for the feedback. I wanted the survey to range from any and all kinds of developers and gamers. Which question made it seem as if you were full time the most?

Completed as a 'Gamer' :)

EDIT:

As for the question that implies you're a full-time Developer? That'll be the 'Are you a Developer?' question near the end. If you offer multiple choice such as:

A 'Yes, Full-Time.'
B 'Yes, in my spare time.'
C 'No, but aspire to be.'
D 'No.'

It may help those that fall between the cracks - not to mention it will help to diversify the findings of your research, rather than miss out all the 'aspiring developers' or developers that simply do it as a hobby.

@Anarkii and @TheLegendOfMart
LOL, I took two courses on survey and statistics thought I should apply them.

Coagulated

You made a good point, should I add a new question to distinguish between the two? Plese note, our goal is 500 and we've already reached over 275. That means that the last 200 or so would actually reply to that question...

Right before Christmas season is fully into full fledged.
 
So sorry for the late processing of this survey. Life was quite busy. Please read the blog post entry as well as the ReadMe File. I hope the Summary and Raw Data is of use to you.

Can I suggest putting the results of the survey on that webpage as a html page or pdf?
Having to go offsite to download a zip file with the results seems dodgy and very unprofessional.
