Abstract

This paper provides a conceptual framework that explains how people's engagement with games is changing as a result of new types of interfaces, hardware, and games. Neo-immersive games move gaming out of the box and into the real world by creating engaging new interfaces and controllers, while at the same time creating games well suited to the casual user. It expands what it means to "play the game" or "be in the game." This subtle shift of perspective allows us to explain the success of recent game titles such as Guitar Hero and the Wii platform.
