Welcome Welcome!

Right, to start with - I've been toying with the idea of doing an AATG gamer survey for a while, y'know - just a pooling together of all the things that make you - the AATG massive - the gamers you are today.

Basically the thing I need are questions - mostly at the moment the way it's looking is very much along the lines of "What consoles do you own?" etc etc - but if there are any more interesting gamer-type questions that you'd like to see included on the survey then bring 'em on.

Survey results will be published in an article intended for the site but obviously no survey is complete without you lovely lot so any contributions welcome.

Right, bring on the quessies!

peej, if you want us to just tell you which adverts we'd be happy to see on the site we'll do that without the pretence of a survey. :p

But seriously, good idea.

How about 'would you wet your pants if you heard that SEGA were getting back into the console market?'.

How cool is Team Ninja's woman-groping Tomonobu Itagaki, on a scale of 1-10?

This might actually be the first gamer survey in history that's being done without anything being sold on to a marketing company! Could it be a first?

how many hours/week do you play video games?

what time of the day do you prefer to play?

favourite joypad/joystick design.

favourite franchise.

the emperor's new clothes nomination for the most over rated/commercially successful game.

separate nominations for best gameplay/graphics/physics/sound/story in a game.

the "oh god, why does it have to end award" for the game you wanted to continue playing after completion.

favourite flash/browser game.

favourite genre.

least favourite genre.

best/worst things to happen to gaming in the last 5 years.

thing that is most likely to make you stop playing a new title.

the most recent game(s) that disappointed/exceeded your expectations.

that should be enough for starters...

Have you had to send your console back under warranty? (genuinely interested, do people buy consoles and expect to have to send it in now?)

How long do you typically play a game before you get bored/give up?

How many unplayed games do you own?

Should more games have monkeys in them? (we all know the answer is yes but still...)

Perhaps "how many extra monkeys need adding to games?"

That's better.

Should the Wii have a monkey shaving simulator?

Perhaps "how many monkey shaving simulators should the Wii have per year?" would be more insightful.

1) Are you holding off buying a 360 until they produce one that's likely to last longer than a packet of Ham?

2) What was the first console you bought?

3) What was the first game you played?

4) What influences you the most with your purchases:

Advertising

Screenshots

Positive Reviews

Price

1) Do you think games can influence people to do heroic or generally positive things?
2) Do you think games can influence people to commit violent acts or do generally negative things?
3) If your answers differed, why, retard?

Some fantastic questions in here.

I've done a bit of work on this over the weekend so I'll be posting the necessary bits on here soonish.

Could do - I was aiming to do it via mail - to cut down on cheeky little buggers submitting bullcrap survey results.

BUT it would cut down on the legwork.

Still need questions peej?

1. Do you use a HDTV with your consoles?
2. Do you play games online?
3. How important is the inclusion of a multiplayer mode to your purchase of a game?
4. HD-DVD, Blu-Ray, both or none?
5. Do you think XBLA, PSN and Virtual Console games are good value for money?
6. DLC; a nice way to extend the life of a title or a cynical way to squeeze even more money out of the consumer?

Hope these are of some use.

What are your PC specs. :-)

Honestly. What % of your games are legal and what % is acquired through other means?

Do you rush through games and mash the buttons to get past dialogues or do you stroll through savouring the experience.

How many of your games do you complete?

How far do you get into games before you stop?

Do you keep non completed games you no longer play or do you trade/sell on?

How do you like your FPS controls?
ASWD? QWSE? ^v? num pad?

How many different types of input devices do you own?
Keyboard, joypad, console controllers, bongos, GH guitar, fishing rod, etc

Sorry guys, I'm not ignoring you - I've just been up to my eyes in it at work (makes a change, I know) and at home too - but these questions are excellent!

Hairy - dost thou want to just use some of the ones from this thread plus a few more and knock something up?

I will have a clear week next week so hopefully I can do a bit more on all this stuff then but I haven't forgotten so keep 'em coming.

/done quite a bit of importing this week.

I think my answer to that would be 'do they still release non-360 games in Europe these days?'.

OK OK I admit it, I had the idea but I don't have the time to follow through (matron)

Anyone else want to take up the baton?
