Worldplay Survey

Welcome to the Worldplay Research Initiative (WRI) Survey

 

Worldplay Research Initiative (WRI) is a collaborative research project exploring issues associated with cross-cultural interactions in on-line games and virtual worlds. During the first phase of this project, we are reaching out to players, developers and researchers to collect a range of opinions on these issues. We want to know what you think.

Please note that you can share your thoughts anonymously, without providing any personal contact information. There are approximately ten questions. Feel free to answer with short sentences or lengthy manifestos. If any of the questions seem redundant or interesting, just skip to the next one.

Thank you for taking time to share your ideas with us.

1. In many virtual worlds, players are encouraged to cooperate with other players. To what extent has cooperation and collaboration with other players played a role in your experience of virtual worlds?

2. In many virtual worlds, players are encouraged to compete with other players. To what extent has competition with other players played a role in your experience of virtual worlds?

3. What cross-cultural experiences -- if any -- have you had in on-line games and virtual worlds?

4. In general terms, how do you feel about the ability to interact with players from other countries in virtual worlds? Do you view this as a good thing? Do you view this as a bad thing? Does it matter to you at all?

5. Many virtual worlds are "region-locked" in ways that exclude players from other geographical regions. Have you ever been aware of region-locking in your favorite games? Has this practice ever stopped you from playing a game with someone? Do you prefer region-locked games?
