Video Gaming As a Popular Hobby
Video gaming has become a popular hobby for many people. It involves the interaction of the player with a user interface and input device. The input device may be a controller, joystick, keyboard, or a motion sensing device. The player experiences feedback visual and auditory through this interface. The main differences between video games and other computer games are the type of input device and the game’s style of play. In addition, video games are usually available in more than one language.
To understand the experiences of the PG participants, semi-structured interviews were conducted. The interviews lasted about one hour and were conducted in person, via phone, or via Skype audio only. The interviewer used probing questions and tried to bracket the participant’s prior experience in video games. The interviews were conducted through an iterative process. Each interviewer’s questions were modified based on the results of the previous research and to keep the participants’ responses as varied as possible.
There are many influences that affect the amount of time a person spends gaming. These include interpersonal and personal factors as well as the environment. Each of these factors influences a person’s gaming habits. The three main factors influence the amount of time a person spends in video games: environmental and personal. The three factors are interconnected, and the interaction of these variables can lead to different levels of activity. For example, if the child enjoys playing games and doesn’t have friends or family who play games, that child is not likely to be addicted to video games.
