  • This research examined the effects of user experience in driving simulation game between using general monitor and 3D virtual reality device, Oculus Rift DK2. We compared the difference of user experience such as presence, flow and arousal by gaming environment. We also tested the effects of virtual reality on driving attitude, emotional pleasure and satisfaction. 100 beginner drivers with a driver's license participated in the experiment of two modes of gaming environment. As a result, all the three user experiences were proved to be significantly higher in VR game play than general monitor game. Also driving attitude, emotional pleasure and satisfaction showed a significant difference in virtual reality. This study makes a theoretical and practical contribution to the application of the next virtual reality game with a special function.

  • This study attempted to identify differences in user experience such as spatial presence, social presence, flow, empathy, anxiety, and perceived risk between simulating characters of animation and of actual userimage. The playtesting method was conducted on 60 male smokers using 'Smoking Sims', a simulation game produced by The Center for Health Communication Studies. The results found that the simulation of actual image character is higher in the level of perceived risks for smoking, spatial presence, social presence, flow, and empathy than the simulation of animation character. The study shows that identification with a game character affects user experience and enhances the effectiveness of perceived risks as well. It emphasizes the importance of game design to implement identification in serious game like a smoking cessation simulation.

  • Cross-Media Storytelling(CMS) is the new method of media representation. It picks the features and the elements in one media, and uses them in another media. 'Remediation' in digital era uses the content of old media in new form based on new technology. But 'CMS' represents the basic elements of the media experience in each unique style of media. It changes the focus from the technology to experience. So CMS is the new strategy of the media not based on the new technology. Adam PESapane's (2006) is a example for this strategy. It takes the game media as a subject matter. But it expresses the meta-representation of game experience in the "stop motion animation" Especially it emphasizes the narrative chain between the usual phenomenon and the visual imagination. And it shows the possibility of representation of new media experience in the old media genre. So it suggests the conditions of CMS.

The analytic results are as the following. When verifying the impact of a domestic violence experience of children on their game addiction, domestict violence was found as the key variable that has a negative impact on children's game addiction. The results indicated that children with higher levels of domestict violence more likely to have higher levels of game addiction. Furthermore, boy's addiction degree to game was higher than girls' and lower education levels of mother, higher grades were found to be associated with higher game addiction. The impact of children's social support on their game addiction was analyzed. The analytic results suggest that social support has a impact on their game addiction.

  • Education of 'Law and Order' is necessary in our recent society. However it is so difficult subject for students in the elementary schools to be learned efficiently. In this research, we have studied how to utilize the game as an educational contents with good effects of the game. And we have designed a game in which children could experience various situations where they had to make decisions based on proper law and order. Parents were also encouraged to participate and play along the game with role balances as mentors to their children. The effectiveness was tested with experience of the developed prototype game and questions. Through the study we expect and hope to use games as effective learning tools for children in the future.
