At our research group at the GTCC.NRW a team of students conducted a study within a research project in order to identify play-personas in the first-person shooter game Battlefield Bad Company 2 (BFBC2). Based on the play-persona classification by Nick Yee the students created a questionnaire and asked the participants for their player ID in order to align the metrical data of the Battlefield Bad Company 2 stats website with the questionnaire results. We identified the achiever and socializer play-personas within BFBC2 and created a website plug-in, which players can use to visualize the stats behind their play-personas.
The website presenting the results of the study is now online, together with the persona visualizing tool, which gives you the opportunity to predict your play-persona in BFBC2. In addition, the website features further resources and links:
