Xiaolan Peng, Jin Huang, Alena Denisova, Hui Chen, Feng Tian, Hongan Wang
2020 Proceedings of the 2020 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems  
Although emotional challenge has immediately attracted HCI researchers' attention, the concept has not been experimentally explored, especially in virtual reality (VR), one of the latest gaming environments  ...  We found that relatively exclusive emotional challenge induced a wider range of different emotions in both conditions, while the adding of emotional challenge broadened emotional responses only in VR.  ...  Recent work introduced the notion of emotional challenge as a fertile ground to explore more unique and diverse PX in digital games [2] .  ...

Sounds too true to be good: diegetic infidelity – the case for sound in virtual reality

Angela McArthur, Rebecca Stewart, Mark Sandler
2017 Journal of Media Practice  
Cinematic virtual reality (VR) elicits new possibilities for the treatment of sound in space.  ...  However, a reductive modelling of environmental realism, in the name of 'presence' predominates. Yet cross-modal perception is a noisy, flickering representation of worlds.  ...  This in turn focuses our concern on sound's rendering more than its reproduction, even in a reality that is virtual.  ...
