Visual Realism and Presence in a Virtual Reality Game

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapport/konference proceedingKonferenceartikel i proceedingForskningpeer review

Abstract

Virtual Reality (VR) has finally entered the homes of consumers, and a large number of the available applications are games. This paper presents a between-subjects study (n=50) exploring if vi-sual realism (polygon count and texture resolution) affects pres-ence during a scenario involving gameplay, graphics, and controls that, contrary to much existing research, resemble commercially available VR games. The results suggest that participants exposed to a higher degree of visual realism experienced a stronger sensa-tion of presence, as assessed by means of self-reports, and phys-iological measures revealed that higher visual realism also was accompanied by stronger fear responses which may be indicative of stronger presence.
