Mapping Game Categories With Analysis

A few US institutions have gotten together and done what all mental analysts have done before them, which is ask people to do a survey. But this time they are asking people to fill out a survey which will tell them what video games gamers think are similar to each other. And from this they will create a graph where similar games will be clustered together.

The results from this survey could open the door to new genre descriptors, instead of the ones we use today which are primarily named by what perspective players play the game from. The survey only takes ten minuets and can be found at Mapping The Mental Space Of Video Games or if you want to go direct to the survey click Here.
