McMahon, Nicole, Wyeth, Peta, & Johnson, Daniel (2012) Personality and player types in Fallout New Vegas. In Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Fun and Games, Association for Computing Machinery, Toulouse, pp. 113-116.
The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between personality and videogame player types. Study participants completed an online survey that gathered information regarding the individual's personality, via the Big Five Inventory, and player types. The study was focused on understanding this relationship in the context of the action role-playing videogame, Fallout New Vegas (FNV). A relationship between personality and player type was found, specifically with respect to the personality traits of openness to experience and conscientiousness.
