Hello everybody. I am design research student and am currently making a research about games. I am making user studies right now and I was wandering which do you prefer to play - video games or board games and why? :)

This is non-commercial research, just a study project and I will use your answers for statistics and conclusions - won't cite any names or anything :)

Your answers will help me a lot to get a better insight on what people feel about games :D

Thank you a lot for your time.

Have fun all :D

I like both, but video games can be played by yourself so I prefer them.

The hassle of learning the rules of a new board game, explaining them to your friends 40 times and finding ways to cheat is a bit too much.
Just playing FIFA against each other is much easier.

Board games used to be great fun to play with your family.Now since play station and other consoles have come out youngsters prefer to play them.
I know my children prefer that to sitting around the table like I used to as a kid.It's a shame as had some great nights.
Now the board games are put away and no doubt will be sold as antiques when I'm gone:p

I'm a keen PC Gamer, have been pretty much all my life.

The great powers of video games...

1. It offers me a distraction, an alternative to reality for a few hours.
2. PC gaming is an enjoyable distraction from all the crap in my life.
3. Video games. The cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems.
