Abstract [en]

This bachelor thesis is about exploration in games and what types of players it is who prefer to explore. The methods used within this thesis has the intention of trying to examine what it is that draws players to explore and also to see if there are any similarities between the different players who fit within the same group. How this thesis came about was that I used different types of sources for research to later write a survey with which to then use to be able to collect my own data about the subject to later compare my results with what I read in my source material. What I concluded at the end was that there is no single answer that can be given to such an individual question because we as humans are different individuals, so it isn’t surprising that the reason why we act the way we do is completely individual. However, there are some generalizations that can be made for people who like to explore in games and I have divided the people with an interest in exploration in two different categories based on the reason for their exploration. The thesis managed to amount to something, which was that there really isn’t a concrete answer to the question I asked in the beginning of the work process but that there still exists similarities to see between a wide group of people. Had I put down more time then maybe I could have arrived at a better answer than what I did, this isn’t for sure though. What I do know now is that at least there needs to be more research done surrounding this subject.
