It’s important to know how gaming affects to your life because it isn’t just a hobby – it’s a way of life. Have you ever had a discussion with your friends, parents, teachers or other people about how gaming really affects to your life? We here in Square Portal are planning to help you to know a bit more about the subject you are talking about and base your knowledge on real researches alongside your own experiences.
When it comes to science, there will be articles about gaming’s bad and good sides, but it’s always good to keep a certain kind of criticality when it comes to researches. The beauty of science is that it can be fixed if it’s broken, which is why results keep changing after more researches are completed after years of hard work.
When analyzing the results, you should carefully examine: Who paid the research and hired the people, how the data acquisition was executed, how big was the sample and how and what kind of people were chosen in the research. As you see, there are many factors influencing to the results, which is why it’s important to keep our eyes peeled for trust-worthy information. All science articles on our site will be based on real researches done by scientists, but remember that the results are never 100% accurate.
This week we thought to start with a research about rage quitting. Is it caused by video games’ violent content or experiences of failure and frustration? You can read the article from here! Remember to post your thoughts to the comments section and tell your experiences of rage quitting, and why and when have you done it.
By posting a comment you can also win a PlayStation 4 version of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn!
Maybe I am to old to understand this? I’ve been into gaming since the late 70’s, actually I am hardcore Final Fantasy Collector, enjoy SE games and many others. I honestly can’t say it is anything more then a hobby, it is not a way of life, I have many other hobbies (Anime/Animation, Music etc.) and all of it is a hobby – we need hobbies or we’d go insane. That’s it for me, they are very enjoyable, fun etc. but they are not a religion (or way of life) almost sounds a bit like a cult the way you have it. Again maybe I am to old to get this but sounds a bit off-the-wall to me.
