Television shows based on video games 1975-2019: Original data and preliminary analysis

This dataset consists of data of different types of television shows based on video games from years mentioned in the title. The data has been used in articles and conference presentations before (e.g. Kerttula 2019; Kerttula 2020). The data is free to use in any future publications with proper references to the author and the original data. Should the data be used in further research, it is to be noted that the dataset is not 100% complete. The reasons to this are difficulties with language and cultural barriers. It also needs to be mentioned, that some of the television shows and production companies have probably being forgotten over time, which means that a complete list would quite likely prove to be very difficult to gather. Some of the data included is missing classification information. This is because in these cases, the data needed was not available or hard to figure out. For example, the time slot data was missing for these shows, or there was not enough information available to make conclusions about the structure of the show. This applies only for a handful of shows, however. This data does not compromise or endanger any copyrights or personal information. All the data gathered here is publically available from different internet sources. No personal information, such as addresses, phone numbers or contact persons was recorded in the data. Some shows feature episodes from video depositories around internet, but if the production company wants to take the episodes offline, it does not harm the dataset. ...
