The resonating spaces of First-Person Shooter games

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


In previous work I have provided a conceptual framework for the design and analysis of sound in First-Person Shooter games and have suggested that the relationship between player and soundscape in such games may be modeled as an acoustic ecology. This paper develops these ideas further and uses them to describe and define a variety of sonic spaces within the First- Person Shooter and their relevance for player immersion in both the acoustic ecology and the wider gameworld.
