Hi everyone!

This is a follow-up post to my initial forum thread earlier this year regarding our video game use online survey.

Many thanks to all the gamers who have taken part in our survey so far - we have had an excellent response internationally to the project and some very constructive feedback from the gaming community.

We would just like to say that the survey remains open to any video game users who have not yet taken the survey.

For those of you who are new to the project, this is a large survey by the University of Sydney, Australia. We are investigating patterns of video game use, with a particular interest in the concept of excessive video game use.

If you’d like to take part, please follow the link below to our website:

Psychological Medicine - Nepean Clinical School - The University of Sydney (The survey can be found at the top right corner)

Alternatively, if you would like to learn more about our research, have a look at a recent interview with me by the Australian PC magazine ‘Atomic’:

Interview: Dr Guy Porter on violence and addiction in games - Feature - PC gaming - www.atomicmpc.com.au

Thanks again!

It's an interesting survey, although many of questions towards the end could be completely unrelated to gaming and be in relation to many other everyday life things that have nothing to do with playing games but instead with environment and upbringing. But I did enjoy the survey, I love those things.

Completed. :)

Although the second half reads more like a self-diagnosis form for some kind of OCD. Not something I'd expect to see in a gaming survey. O_o

Hi everyone and thanks for taking part!

To answer your questions:

I'm a hospital doc working in the field of psychiatry - I am a trainee psychiatrist. Our senior investigator A/Prof.Starcevic is a senior psychiatrist with many years experience of research in the discipline of psychiatry/psychology.

We won't be able to post the results immediately on internet forums as they need to be analysed and published in a medical/psychology journal first. I do hope to give some feedback to the gaming community once this process is complete - most probably via popular media (such as another interview with 'Atomic' magazine).

Yes the questions in the second half can seem a little strange or confronting, but these are all standard questions that we ask in psychology/psychiatry.
