Respondenterna har fått besvara hur mycket de spelar, hur mycket de uppskattar olika spelgenrer samt fått besvara påståenden kring spelande tänkta att mäta deras motivation till att spela Resultatet visar att andel nedlagd tid på spelande korrelerar negativt med stigande ålder, att män föredrar fysiska och imaginära spel i högre grad än kvinnor och att kvinnor uppskattar simulatorspel mer än män.

Abstract [en]

This study examined gender differences in electronic gaming and presents a result with a quantitative survey (N=111, n=36 women, n=75 men). The respondents answered how much they play, how much they appreciate different game genres and also to a set of statements meant to measure their motivation for playing games. The result shows that the amount of gameplay correlates negatively with increased age, that men prefers physical and imaginary games to a higher degree than women and that women appreciate simulator games more than men. Regarding gamers’ motives for playing, the result shows that men are to a higher degree than women motivated by social interaction between players and the feeling of excitement within gameplay
