Invigorating play: the role of affect in online multiplayer fps games

Chapter


Abstract


  • The first-person shooter (FPS) genre has its origins in the cinematic

    visual technique known as the first-person subjective camera

    angle (Galloway 2006, 40). The first-person view is framed by

    merging camera lens with the character's eye to create a "rectilinear

    plane of Albertian perspective" (O'Riley 1998, 18). The visual

    impression of this" Renaissance pictorial tactic" (Shinkle 2005, 24)

    produces a subjective view that is remediated through the technologies

    of photography, cinema, and FPS games as an entirely modern

    sense of experiencing the world (O'Riley 1998).
