Instead of trying to answer as many questions as possible, browse through the questions and focus on the ones that you are most interested in answering.

The following questions are meant to be fairly open-ended, so if you want to discuss or add something tangential to a question, feel free to do so. Also, when multiple questions are asked at the same time, do not feel the need to answer all of the questions. Simply answer the ones that are most relevant to you.

Your entries may be quoted anonymously with your gender and age indicated in a report/presentation online, a searchable database, or in print. By submitting one or more entries below, you are giving me permission to reproduce your story in the formats mentioned.

1) When you compare why you liked playing the game when you first started playing with why you like playing the game now, are there differences? What do you think led to those changes? Or would you say your motivations for playing have remained fairly constant over time?

2) Are there styles of play that you never thought you would get into that you enjoy now, or are there styles of play that you loved that you have grown bored with? How did that happen?

3) Are there game mechanics you've just grown bored with from seeing them over and over again? Or are there game features that you would like to see more of in games but can never get enough of? What are those?
