The findings are online!

Hi everybody!


The results are finally ready.

First of all, I want to say MANY THANKS to all the video game players from the Swedish game forums that helped me in this study! This has been a great experience.

These results are the first step, so I hope you find it interesting and that it can motivate other players to share their experiences.

I am looking forward to hear your comments & further experiences!

  1. Cool study! My four-year old nephew has also experienced some GTP. He steps on different plates in the street, imagining that they give points haha, just as in a video game.
