Spelares uppfattning om Pokémon Go (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

In a recent pilot study, it was revealed that certain players of Pokémon Go did not account for the game while asked to specify the games they played regularly, although they had previously mentioned that they play the game daily. This paper will explore those player’s perception of Pokémon Go in aim to understand why they did not account for the game. This study uses a series of interviews of the participants to explore how they perceive the game. The interviews are analysed thematically using predefined themes and the results suggests that the reason to why the game was not accounted for might be related to the pervasive nature of the game.
