  • Mobile games' proportion in domestic game industry has been rising steadily every year and in next couple of years, it is likely to surpass online games. Considering that mobile games' lifespan is very short compared to online games, recognizing the user's needs at the beginning is important. However, there is a lack of research in such game field. This research is about mobile games' initial experience importance in temporal viewpoint. Furthermore, it has verified whether this depends on user's characteristic. I have conducted observation experiment on users of 'Lineage M', mobile MMORPG game, for one week starting from the game launch and deducted the importance of initial experience using AHP analysis. Moreover, by analyzing the differences in users' proficiency, the research provides understanding of diverse users. In conclusion, this research provides basic data for improving satisfaction of initial game users and extending them to long-term game use.

  • This study was conducted to propose anti-stigma strategies by verifying the social stigma on behavioral addiction under the premise that social stigma is a main obstacle to the treatment of addiction. A research model was constructed by applying the attribution affection theory and the modified attribution affection theory, which are very useful for explaining emotional and behavioral responses to the persons with mental illness. In other words, when attributing the causes of behavioral addiction to the personally controllable things such as personality, will and lifestyle, social distance can be increased by the mediate of anger. However, when attributing the causes of behavioral addiction to biological factors that can not be controlled by an individual, there can exist two pathway, one is the arising of helping behaviors by the mediate of sympathy (the attribution affection theory), and the other is the aggravation in the social distance due to rising fear (the modified attribution affection theory). In order to verify the research model, 383 adult subjects mainly in South Gyeongsang Province were randomly presented with the vignettes of gambling addiction and internet game addiction, and asked about the causes of the problems and their emotional, prejudicial, and behavioral responses to them. As a result, all pathway had statistically significant predictive effect. Therefore, in the case of attributing to personal causes, social distance increased by the mediate of anger. In the case of attributing to biological causes, both pathway had significant predictive effect, but the indirect effect of the pathway predictive of the helping behavior by the mediate of sympathy was greater. Researchers suggested that anti-stigma strategies, which emphasize that behavioral addiction is a mental health problem requiring treatment, are necessary.

  • Since the game is industrialized in the 1970s, efforts to study attributions throughout the definition of the game has been continued. This study analyzed the importance of 7 attributions including rule, goal, conflict, activity, decision-making, voluntary, art that were collectively organized by Katie Salen & Eric Zimmerman using AHP. For this, we analyzed the data after subjected to pair-wise comparison survey through the gaming industry experts, and the result was confirmed that match the analysis model comparing with the survey of game players. In this analysis of the importance, Goal(24%) is the greatest important in the seven factors mentioned above. Art(16%),Voluntary(15%), Rule(13%) followed after it. So, We can find out which attributes are considered important in the game development process through this Research.

  • We live under the consequences of countless decisions, among which significant number of decisions is made by representatives acting on behalf of us. However, individuals often make disparate decisions depending on which identity they are assigned as an agent or with which opponent they are interplaying. In the current research, behavioral discontinuity depending upon actor identity and social relationship was investigated using the ultimatum game. Participants behaved in a more economically rational way when they acted as a group representative compared with when they made decisions as a private individual. However, the direction of the individual-representative discontinuity was reversed when rivalry came into play. Furthermore, more fairness was requested to accept the offers in the interaction with the rival compared with the neutral countergroup. Especially when interacting with the rival group, participants showed contrasting level of decision bias - measured by rejection rate toward unfair offers - according to the degree of mind attribution to the opponent. Specifically, the greater participants attributed a mind to the rival group, the more they rejected the unfair offers from it. The present research is important in that it provides insight into individuals' decision-making in a group context, which sometimes forgoes the financial gain of the entire group and ultimately leads to the sub-optimization of social welfare.
