Audience: The survey is targeted to people who play videogames. If you are not a video game player, do not take this survey. Additionally, this survey asks questions about sexual orientation. If you are uncomfortable with this topic, do not take this survey.

Purpose and Procedures: This survey is designed to learn more about video game players. If you decide to participate, you will be asked several sets of questions asking about your opinions, your video game use, and your basic background information. If you agree to take part in this research, you will complete an online survey, which will take about 25-45 minutes depending on which sections you answer.

Please note: Once you finish the survey, you won't be able to come back and change your responses. However, in the event you need to leave and come back, you will be able to pick up where you left off, and you can change your answers already filled out.

Voluntariness: Your participation in this research is voluntary. You may refuse to participate, discontinue participation, or skip questions you don't wish to answer. At any time you may leave the survey by closing your browser window.

Risks and Benefits: There are no particular risks associated with taking this survey, other than those you would encounter in everyday life. You may benefit by learning more about your own video game habits and attitudes. Even if you do not benefit personally from participation, your participation advances science by helping us understand who plays video games and why.

Confidentiality: You will not be asked to provide your identity in the survey, nor provide any information that would identify you. One question does ask for your zip code, but this is used to understand the geographical reach of participants. It is not used to identify you in anyway.
