Feedback form is now closed.
Insights Needed is not just a panel, it’s a chance to talk about what makes video games engaging and how we can think about optimizing engagement from a health perspective. We need your insights to help answer questions like what makes games hard to put down and how do gamers self-regulate their playing? Are daily login rewards more motivating than streak bonuses? Does playing with friends make it easier or harder to take a break? What mechanics should developers consider to improve engagement without making players feel frustrated or burned out from playing too much? This panel is part of a research project designed to foster rational discussion and consensus about video games and health, and the best part is, the science will be done at Escape Velocity! We will analyze results of the panel during the convention and present them on Sunday for your feedback.  Join us to make your voice heard and help move the discussion forward!
