Check out gamers GTP and my interview in TV news BBC East Midlands Today.
Approx. at 3:46.
The video is only available in UK and until 10.45 PM tonight.
My GTP baby is growing little by little. Thanks to all that have believed in me and supported my research during these five exciting and challenging years.
Here is a transcript of what the gamers who were interviewed in the programme said:
First player: “A game a used to play a lot, Zelda, it’s like a world you going to. I will be playing it for 60 odd hours no in a row. Then there is a lot of it where you have to slice bushes and I will see bushes and think, oh God, what this is doing to me?”
Second player: “It depends which game you play, I suppose. Playing more realistic games comic games which are designed to be more realistic, it might be more difficult to switch off.”
Third player: “I think I tend to keep in the real world and turn the console off.
Fourth player: “Video game really affect you and you can get emotionally attached to it and really go into the world if it’s good enough.”
Fifth player: “I never think, I never see a crossover personally. When I used to play the Sims that was like a real life simulations. You are of sort of micromanaging families. When I was in real life, soletimes, I would see some of the itels. I would feel like I was right back there.”
What a pleasant surprise my boyfriend got when visiting Sweden. He bought a copy of his favorite Swedish game magazine “Level” (as he usually does when visiting Sweden) and found an article about Game Transfer Phenomena, “Are you a super human?
Good edition to add to his collection. This is one of the advantages of playing games with your b-friend 😉
Here is a snapshot for my fellow Swedish gamers.
