Video Games: A Human Factors Guide to Visual Display Design and Instructional System Design

Pagination or Media Count:
Electronic video games have many of the same technological and psychological characteristics that are found in military computer-based systems. For this reason, the video game is both a fascinating object of study and a valuable experimental apparatus. The results of two on-going research programs, both of which employ video games as experimental stimuli, are presented here. The first research program seeks to identify and exploit the characteristics of video games in the design of game-based training devices. The second program is designed to explore the effects of electronic video display characteristics on perceptual judgments. The empirical results of these two programs are shown to have practical application in training device design and visual display design.
