My name is Patrick Win and I am currently doing my honours degree on Computer Science (Charles Sturt University, Bathurst, Australia) with a topic of “Should a PC game User Interface (UI) be modifiable/customisable?” There have been very few researches done on Game related areas probably due to a lot of people perceiving gaming as a waste of time and not worth giving up their time researching about games.
I am holding a friendly survey to get public opinions on your most played game and if that game offers UI customisation options, your general opinion on UI customisation, and other questions like your background gaming experience. There will be around 10 - 15 questions depending on choices you make and will take around 5 - 10 mins at most to complete the survey. Unfortunately, I am not able to offer any incentives due to how ethics policies and regulations work in Australia but your time and input will surely help the gaming community further extend the knowledge on Game UI Customisation.
If you do decide to take the survey, please follow the link below and read the information sheet carefully which can be found on the first two pages of the survey. The survey will close on 20th December, 2015 and the final paper is expected to be released somewhere around June, 2016. The link to the final paper will be posted on this forum when it gets released.
Thank you so much for your time and your contribution would prove the world (and our parents of course ) that gaming is not just for kids and there are a lot of future academic potentials on game related areas.
