How to Motivate and Engage Gamers and Support Healthy Digital Gaming Habits
and it was fantastic! You can read more about my takeaways on my other blog, http://mondaymollymusings.blogspot.com/2018/11/ecoo-conference-reflections-from-bit18.html
Part of Jen's presentation included a link to a gaming profile survey. The URL to her slides, in case you can't see it on the image, is http://bit.ly/gamersbit18 and the link to the gamer profile survey is http://apps.quanticfoundry.com/lab/gamerprofile/
I promised that I would share the gaming profiles of most of my family members and I am keeping my promise. I asked my eldest and youngest to answer the survey questions and provide their results. They kindly complied. This post is dedicated to the awesome Gumby Blockhead, who shared his profile on Twitter.
My gamer profile: Driven, Grounded, Practical https://t.co/1640AUfKiM @JenApgar @liamodonnell @Niecsa— Gumby Blockhead (@GumbyBlockhead) November 16, 2018
Here are my family profiles...
Me - the Matriarch
M - the eldest
P - the youngest
It seems like social and achievements are important to all three of us, whereas immersion matters a lot to the eldest but not to the rest of us. The teens' graphs seem wider / fatter / bigger than mine - is that because for many of my responses, they were lukewarm rather than extreme? I wanted to compare the results a bit easier, so I put the major categories into a chart.
I was also taken with how similar Gumby's profile is to PM's. No wonder they have a lot of fun gaming together!
