Video Games Questionnaire

Advanced questions
This was a second section of the Questionnaire, tailored specifically towards people who do play video games. People who don’t wouldn’t be able to properly answer these questions and as a result wouldn’t be able to provide good answers and as a result would damage my entire questionnaire.
How often Video Games are bought
My first question was created to help me gauge how often the average customer actually purchases a video game. This greatly varies based on multiple different factors. For example, the obvious ones would be location and age. If the customer comes from a poorer background, they might not have the money to spend on a lot of videogames. Likewise, a 10 Year old might not have the pocket money to buy more than

This is because while people can easily watch TV Shows without adverts; either by skipping or using services such as Netflix, people use Social Media everyday, and can’t ignore the adverts. This does however let me know that I should consider TV Adverts

Data shared over the internet is available at any time, and the government has the ability to access everything put out on the internet even when it says it is private. Even when a website says the information is private, people can still access the information somehow. With all the new websites that are coming out, “Privacy concerns have also increased because of the popularity of social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.” (Internet).…

It is considered difficult to understand why violent video games and online computer games may lead to such serious violence.

    In an article written by Maia Szalavitz, she wrote, “The real question [is] whether video games have a uniquely negative effect on those individuals compared to the many other activities and scenarios that they would routinely encounter in their daily lives,” Tear says. “I suspect that video games would be one of many possible things that could affect those particularly vulnerable people but we would need good evidence to conclude that video games are any more harmful than other activities, such as playing basketball or chess”.
