I'm Taking a Look at Gamer Culture: Content Edition Survey

Before I begin with this, thank you so much Mr. McNamara and those who nominated me to be part of the Elite Blogger group.  It is truly an honor to be given this opportunity and I will do my best to deliver you top quality blogs each and every time.

A couple of weeks ago I took a look at Gamer Culture from a political perspective.  It was a mild success, I didn't get all the responses I would have liked, but at the same time the results proved to be fairly consistent with the way the rest of the country is in terms of political ideals and beliefs. This time I wanted to know how gamers felt about content in various forms of entertainment, mostly in terms of what determines a CD/movie/or games rating.

The process is the same as before, I'll provide the questions below, and you take the time to answer them as honestly as you can.  I'll explain the proper answer system at the end of the questions.

Section A

1. Age

2. Sex

3. Favorite form of entertainment (music, movies, or video games).

Section B. On a scale of 1-10 with 1 being never and 10 being always please rate the following:

1. How often do you read the content label on a movie rating?

2. How often do you look for the Parental Advisory Sticker on CDs?

3. How often do you read the content label on an ESRB rating sticker?

Section C. On a scale of 1-10 with 1 being never and 10 being always please rate the following:

1. How often do you take mature content into consideration when buying a CD?

2. How often do you take mature content into consideration when buying/watching a movie?

3. How often do you take mature content into consideration when buying a game?

Section D. On a scale of 1-10 with 1 being never and 10 being always how often do these factors consider into deciding not to buy for all 3 mediums?

1. Sexual Content

2. Violence

3. Language

4. Drug Use

Section E. Please answer the following with Mature Rating (R, M, or Parental Advisory) or Teen Rating (PG-13, T, or no warning)

1. If a movie included content that was objectionable to you, but released two versions to lower the rating would you go to the R rated version or the PG-13 rated version?

2. Which version of a CD do you buy between the Parental Advisory sticker, or the edited version?

3. If a developer released an M rated game, and a T rated version by removing minor details not effecting story which version would you buy? For example if Bioware took away the option to have relations with one of your crew, and made slight changes would you buy the M rated version or the T rated version?

Please take the time to answer these questions.  Please answer them in the following format.  For example in Section D for Sexual content your answer would look like this D1) 5 as an example.

You can answer in the comments below or in my inbox.  If you have any friends who would like to answer but aren't on GIO I have no problem receiving a Twitter mention @TOGNick...
