How it Works


The Good Gamer Group is a large and diverse community, brought together by a passion for gaming. Each study we conduct has its own requirements in terms of age, interests, and other qualifications. The base requirements for membership in the Good Gamer Group are: current U.S., Canadian, UK or Australian resident, at least 12 years of age, and actively plays games on PC, Console, or Mobile platform(s). Whether you enjoy casual gaming to unwind, focus on a specific franchise or system, like to play with family or friends, or even play competitively as a professional, we’ll match you with a study where you can voice your opinion.

What is a Qualitative Study?

Qualitative research usually answers questions that cannot be solved mathematically, or that involve factors that can’t be measured directly, like feelings, emotions, or perceptions. Qualitative studies include focus groups, playtests, 1-on-1 interviews, and other types of ethnographic research work.

At Interpret, we understand that numbers are not enough to tell the whole story – sometimes we need to hear directly from players about what they think, and see how they react to the game itself. Qualitative studies add a crucial, human element to our data - that's why we rely on the Good Gamer Group for our work.


We love to test new games and ideas, however we can! Sometimes, due to the technical requirements or confidential topic of research, we require participants join us in-person. Our in-person research is primarily conducted in Southern California, at our HQ in Los Angeles. We also have partner facilities in Orange County, CA; San Diego, CA; Phoenix, AZ; Dallas, TX; Chicago, IL; and Philadelphia, PA. As well as in Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia.


A majority of our research opportunities are online and open to residents of all 50 U.S. states. Typically, the study will require a laptop or desktop computer with a functional webcam. Some may have additional requirements; for example, a mobile playtest may require you have an eligible model of smartphone. Virtual focus groups are conducted via video conferencing app.
