Hi RPS forums,
Hope this is the correct board, since it’s discussing ‘discussing games’, rather than discussing games.
My name is Tom and I’m a researcher from Goldsmiths, University of London who studies emotional engagement in video games. Much of my work involves interviewing video game players about their game playing habits and experiences, and analysing what’s said.
For my latest project I’m interested in asking people about a gaming experience that has had a significant personal impact on them, or has changed their life in some way.
I’d be most grateful if any of you could spare an hour or two some time to be interviewed over instant messenger on this important topic.

I’m happy to answer any questions you might have. Those wanting more details about my work can look here: http://iggi.org.uk/students/2014/tom-cole/
Those interested can DM me (please don’t reply to me here and clog up the channel for everyone!), or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org).
Many thanks in advance to those interested in taking part.
