This study examines the impact of the display type (form) and content (game) to the PC -game adaptation. An ordinary tabletop display (cathode ray tube; CRT) and a near-eye display (NED) suitable for mobile gaming are compared in two different driving games. A measurement model based on a large dataset (n=2182) is applied to study psychological aspects of the game adaptation. This model integrates two constructs considered important for the game adaptation: involvement and presence. The results

These results indicate that NED's are capable of supporting similar adaptation to the game worlds as compared to CRT's. However, the results also weakly indicate that playing with a CRT increases the evaluations of interaction. The study shows the advantages of using multidimensional measures in studying a rich human-computer interaction.
