Criteria Breakdown

Summary

  • Majority (85%) of population have heard of Zelda.

  • Action-adventure, role-playing, and strategy are the most enjoyable genres of game.

  • Out of the 10 people who did not grown up in US, 4 of them have heard of Zelda and only 2 have played it.

  • Female student tend to like legend of Zelda (NES)

  • About 50% of people who still play Zelda pick Ocarina of Time (N64) as their favorite Zelda title.  

  • Our hypothesis was only true for the male population, 47.95% 

 

Conclusion

 

According to our study, the Nintendo 64 era was the peak of the franchise with 42% of Century students preferring Ocarina of Time

However, our hypothesis was not able to be proved due to the fact our questions did not relate closely enough to just the Nintendo 64 era.

 

 

 

How Our Survey Could be Improved

  • Question 6, "Which game genres do you enjoy the most?" was a typo and meant to be singular "genre"
  • Some selected more than one answer for both question 6 and 10 
  • Survey more people to have more accurate data 
  • Ask more applicable question to our hypothesis
  • List the most popular Zelda Gamecube game in question 10
