Abstract [en]

In this paper I investigate what effects realistic elements in video games have on the gaming experience. By using the term meaningful play as a guide to find the important parts that make up a good gaming experience, I look at a series of realism-based video games and try to uncover what parts of the gaming experience are made up of realistic factors. I do this by allowing six respondents to play different video games and then I interview them about the experience. The results are then analysed by using the term meaningful play to measure the amount of meaning different realistic factors have on a gaming experience in general. The definitive answer is that realism indeed play a significant role, especially graphically. Realistic game mechanics are not as crucial though, and in most cases, accessibility is of much higher value to the common player.
