Hello everyone, following in MichiganMuscle77's topic called "GTA IV Demographic Study", i wanted to create another topic as to collect data on two variables, age and approval on IV, the purpose of this is to offer more insight into the assumption that age has to do with liking IV.

How will i do this? through the use of statistical coeficients and calculations which will allow me to determine if there is a relation between age and how much did you liked IV.

How will you do this? simply state your AGE clearly and if you thought the game was either "Good" or "Bad", PLEASE don't debate this, it is NECESSARY that the answers are either "good" or "bad" for the purposes of calculation, just answer one of those, please.

EDIT: To add another correlation besides Age & Good/Bad, we are now going to include Score, which can be given from 1 to 10, thus, we would have another correlation which would be Score & Age, Mozarelli suggested that i get data from the other topic, but if we add "Score" then it is absolutely necessary that the people who answer Good/Bad and Age also have to be the same who answer Score, and that's why i can't get it from the other topic.

Once i gather enough data i should be able to perform the necessary calculations, which should take me no more than a couple of hours, later on the same day i'll post them and we can see if the assumption that age somehow affects the enjoyment of IV shall be seen.

It would be awesome if 100 people could post in here, because then it would be a very representative sample of the forum members, nevertheless i think 50 or 60 people should be enough, thanks to everyone, it'll be worth it.

I'll start:

Good Or Bad: Good
Age: 20
Score: 9.5

Good or Bad is black and white. Create more options.

Good, Bad, Neutral or something.

28
Good
8.5


But i suspect that nearly everybody will have to say good. Perhaps a better question would be disappointed by GTAIV?
because that is what is generally argued over here

also couldn't you have just taken this info from the other thread?

Ok edited, but i think you're right a lot of people will just give a stupid score, but worth a try i suppose

maybe you could make it:

age: xx

score for GTA IV: xx (1.0 to 10.0)

?

That's not a bad idea, the problem is that a lot of people may vote 1 or 10, and that would seriously f*ck up the interpretation of the results, and besides the fact that i would absolutely need 100 data if not more:

What about if:

Good Or Bad?
Age?
GTA IV Score? from 1 to 10

That way i can make a correlation between Good/Bad & Age, and another correlation between Score & Age.

Mozzarelli: Silly me i guess biggrin.gif , i could get data from the other topic, but then again it wouldn't be from the same members, specially if we introduce now the variable "GTA IV Score".

GOOD.

One question: Why can't you eat sandwiches and baguettes in this game? I'm fed up of burgers and hotdogs, but LOVE sandwiches in real life so it's only natural that they translate that into gameplay.

And you're gonna get flamed again because i actually said that i could've gotten the Good/Bad Score from the other topic, BUT if i am to find out the correlation between age and score, then i can't use the answers from the users of the other topic because they wouldn't be the same users, so please, like somebody before said, contribute or get out.

To everyone else thanks guys, merely in two days we have almost 20 members' answers, i know it's a lot to ask, but the more the better, as i told you i am aiming for 100 answers, if not, then i'll do with what i can with the data, to be honest we don't really need 100 but if it was that number then the correlations would be more truthful to what the opinions of the forum are, in the meantime thanks!!!
