What are the benefits of playing video games? Please help this survey!
I also filled in the survey.
I do think the title is misleading. All questions are focussed on determining this moment of awe and to what extend it was experienced.
I couldn’t see any indication of how this relates to the supposed benefits of playing video games and I saw no means to extrapolate such a conclusion based on answers provided.
Thank you for your advice Bitano. I will pass this to our advisor. In first steps our study is actually about exploring the feeling more closely and get insights which game elements are connected to awe. For example, does a great landscape , a piece of music, a person or something entirely different lead to this feeling of awe. Later it will be about whether and how this feeling changes the enjoyment of a video game.
We would be pleased to post a presentation of our results in this forum if you are interested.
All the best
