Özet

In this paper, through the storytelling of a TUBITAK SOBAG research Project (107k039), I will emphasize the importance of self-reflexivity of the researcher, and her/his position taking during the ethnographic field research among the participants, funding institutions, and industries' agents. Then the lessons taken from the field will be explained. The field research, discussed here is carried on the game industry and digital game culture in Turkey from 2007 to 2009.
