No Andy, it cannot be solved unfortunately. r n r nBetter hardware helps, and there are all kinds of design considerations you can make a big difference too. See the E3 resident evil demo for a good example of someone not applying those design considerations. Some Vive games that have ...

I hope the article makes clear that learnability doesn 't come from written content alone. r n r n100 this. Affordance doesn 't mean text explaining how something works, quite the opposite. To use an example from an excellent book that everyone needs to read, a door that only swings ...

The 5 of gamers statement is closest to the truth. It 's around 8 of males, varying a bit geographically... e.g. in the US it 's higher, in Japan it 's a bit lower in males but significantly higher in females. Either way, enough to make it worth considering, especially ...

Great post, I put one up recently that might be of interest, with some specific guidance on things like line breaking, max number of lines and max characters per line for subtitles/captions which interestingly is similar regardless of language, e.g. Finland and Australia both recommend very similar max characters per ...

Nice article, in particular I was glad to see you mention different research tools having different pros and cons. However personally I 'd tweak the wording of questions as they 're all leading to some degree, they put a positive picture in the respondent 's head. r n r nFor ...

Tweaking colours only works when you have a very limited range of colours that you need to distinguish between. Larger ranges of colours are either impossible to get right by palette tweaking, or very difficult, depending on how many colours are involved. r n r nWith a couple of exceptions ...
