What's my method?: a game show on games
What's My Method? is the game show that asks the question, "How do you user-test games?" The goal of this session is to highlight important differences between user research methods for games and productivity software in an instructive and engaging format. Emotion measurement scenarios are presented to the contestants and audience as questions in a fictional game show. Three games researchers "compete" to propose the best methodology to research thorny questions from real games. The audience acts as the judge, deciding how many points to award contestants for their answers. Categories and subject descriptors: K.8.0 [Personal Computing] General---Games; H.5.1 [Information Interfaces And Presentation]: Multimedia Information Systems---Evaluation/methodology; H.5.2 [Information Interfaces And Presentation]: User Interfaces---Graphical user interfaces (GUI). General Terms: Experimentation, Measurement.
