  10. I don't play video games (I'm a computer gamer myself) but as a sociology major, I've gotta tell you two things: #8 should be split into two questions or re-worded to avoid confusion, and in #4's list of game genres, you've lumped together genres that seemingly have nothing to do with on another: like sports and simulation. Just being difficult :)
