Abstract:

We explored how personality traits are associated with experiential gratification in an online gaming context by applying Pine and Gilmore's (1998) experience economy framework. Results of a confirmatory factor analysis validated the hypothesis that the experience economy framework would be a reliable and valid construct in measuring online gamers' sense of experiential gratification. Furthermore, a regression analysis substantiated the influence of personality traits on the experiential gratification of online game players.
