My academic methodology of this course is not only to record basic data of me playing video games, furthermore I want to find out more about myself and the game itself. To accomplish that, I will record data of the following things:
- Game, duration
- Interaction with other players
- Addiction level (how much I am into this game)
- 1 to 10. One is “I just played without any addiction to it”. Ten is “I forgot everything around me”.
- Personal emotions while playing
- Thoughts & Feelings before and after playing
For now, these are the things I will record every week about the video game I played. I might add additional data here throughout the process.
I really want to understand the effects and consequences of playing a video game, and I really want to get a deeper sense of the relationship of me and the game.
