Winners Announced, Survey Results Posted 

Huge thanks to everyone who participated in our Game Survey Giveaway!  The results are posted below but first we have to congratulate our winner…

Congrats to Chris B. of California USA, proud winner of Gameplay Background Music. Chris is a game hobbyist/enthusiast currently working on designing a few games of his own. Be sure to check out his project here: and support your friendly neighborhood indie game developers! Now let’s see how the survey turned out. Check out our gameplay background music survey.

Q1 – What Impacts Your Gameplay Experience Most?

We kicked off the survey by asking about the impact of sound design on the player’s gameplay experience.  We wanted to find out whether the Soundtrack/Score, Character Dialogue, or Sound Effects had the most effect on the player’s involvement and enjoyment of the game.  The results proved that an engaging soundtrack is crucial to the success of any game. The music drives the story and clearly has a huge impact on everyone’s gameplay experience.

Q2 – What Console Do You Prefer?

Our next question was the classic, decades-long console war question. We needed to know who you guys think reigns over all other gaming platforms. The clear winner of this battle turned out to be PC! It’s not surprising that people prefer the perks that come with PC gaming. From the higher frame rates, to the graphics boosts and highly customizable options, it is easy to see why dedicated gamers tend to gravitate towards PC.

Q3 – How Many Hours Do You Game In A Week?

Finally, to wrap things up, we wanted to know who the true gamers out there were! We asked how much time our users spent playing video games each week ranging from less than 1 hour all the way to 10+ hours. The results ended up being way more evenly distributed than expected!
