Påverkan av Heads-Up Display på Spelupplevelsen i FPS Spel. (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

In this study, we investigate the effect of Heads-Up Display on player experience and performance when playing the first person shooter games Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 4. Participants played a mission twice, once with Heads-Up Display and once without. After each session, the participant answered a PENS questionnaire. The amount of enemies killed and the amount of times the player character died during the session was recorded. No significant differences were found other than that the participants who answered that they only played first person shooter games a few times every month killed more enemies with the Heads-Up Display active, and that the overall amount of kills was generally lower when the Heads-Up Display was active.

Abstract [sv]

Denna studie undersökte effekten av Heads-Up Display på spelupplevelsen samt spelarens prestationer i förstapersonsskjutspelen Battlefield 1 och Battlefield 4. Deltagarna spelade ett uppdrag två gånger, en gång med Heads-Up Display och en gång utan. Efter varje spelomgång svarade deltagarna på ett PENS-frågeformulär. Antalet eliminerade fiender samt antalet gånger spelkaraktären dog noterades.  Inga tydliga skillnader framkom mer än att deltagarna som svarat att de spelade förstapersonskjutspel några gånger i månaden lyckades eliminera fler fiender när Heads-Up Display var aktiverat, samt att antalet eliminerade fiender var allmänt lägre när Heads-Up Display var aktiverat.
