  • Requesting Help, again!

    So it's now time for me to write my Final Paper.

    In case you're curious, I got a C+ on the midterm paper... I think I deserved more, I resubmitted it so it may have been bumped up to a B...

    Anyways, this time I am doing a paper on methods to maximize the social atmosphere / community of games. I will be creating a survey which I am hoping many of you will fill out, but for now I was hoping to get some suggestions:

    What kind of questions should be on the survey?
    What games' forums should I post to about social community-ness... I'm definitely posting it here. My focus is more on FPSes so I don't know if I'll post it to WoW.

    What other FPSes are highly team oriented, preferably with voice communication?

    Counter-Strike, if you can find a server that has good people...

    (Say... isn't there one of those around here?)

    Otherwise people will bitch at you for being a nub, or a hacker, or some other reason. See any Cal server. I played on one, and I can never stand Cal people.

    Though in my opinion, you better off with something like Halo 1, in a social setting, as Halo lets the amazing players shine, and the not so good players pull crazy stunts. (An example... a newbie grabbed overshield and blasted himself across map to cap flag.)

      Battlefield 2? And BF2142, both also around TG.

      Actually, TG has quite a few team-oriented FPS games.

        Questions I can think of that might be useful:
        - What is it that makes you come back to the same community/communities for gaming? (presuming they do, of course)
        - Why play online? What is it that online gaming offers that a great AI (for example) can not?
        - How do you deal with a poor online experience with a particular player? Clan? Community?

        <anmuzi> it is not permitted to have privacy or anonymity
        <LazyEye> yeah when I play on TG the server digs though my trash

          I will be creating this survey and posting it after my 3pm today. (I will be getting feedback from the professor on my topic at that time, so I feel I should wait until then to form the survey.)

          To the admins: Should I post it in this thread or should I just post a new thread? (I'm also planning on double posting the survey to the other game's forums because I know many of us don't go outside our game, seemed okay for my midterm paper. Hope it's okay again. :) )

            Create a new thread per poll, per forum. Always reference this thread in each, so people understand what you're doing.

            Be very descriptive in your poll goal, and try not to create answer options that suck.

            If you can't add the poll to a new thread, PM a moderator in each forum, including the link to the thread you need a poll added to, complete with question (and answer options). Note: some moderators in some forums may not add the poll. Might wanna check ahead of time.

                Or... we could all stamp Wyz's forehead with a big, red FIRED stamp, slap him around a bit, and get him to do the paper for you... complete with it's on Visual Software...

                Just an idea. (plus I got to burn Wyz on 45's replacement lawl)

                To all but me is the look given but never received. My heart sinks faster and faster every time I look into them, yet I do not understand their controling power on my soul. - W11114m W45h1n670n

                  I move to temp-ban Mom for typing 'lawl.' Do I have a second?

                    The motion is passed.

                    We can save seconds for the buffet.

                    Mmmmm.. chicken pot pie.
