Abstract [sv]

Dagens spelvanor mellan kvinnor och män beror på åldern. Båda könen spelar men hur skapar de karaktär när de har fria händer? Finns det skillnader ur ett genusperspektiv? Det huvudsakliga syftet är att besvara frågan: Hur skapar kvinnor och män karaktärer i spelet The Sims? Genom att titta på resultatet av fyra kvinnor och fyra mäns karaktär och sedan intervjua dem för djupgående information har vi fått data som besvarar dessa frågor för vår studie. Data har visat att männen var mindre personliga när de skapade en karaktär,använde mer fantasi och tog mindre tid att skapa karaktär. Majoriteten av kvinnorna skapade själva eller delar av sig själva och tog mer tid vid detaljer.
