Visualizing or seeing video game images with closed eyes has been one of the most common experiences reported by gamers in the GTP studies to date (1,2). In fact, in a survey with a self-selected sample of over 2,000 gamers, 77% reported such phenomenon (2). Recurrent afterimages of game elements […]
The imminent arrival of more highly immersive technologies for entertainment brings exciting possibilities for gamers, developers and researchers. As a gamer, I’m looking forward to get my own head mountain display, but it also raises important questions regarding the impact on wellbeing. Game Transfer Phenomena (GTP), a research approach focusing […]
Gamers have reported perceiving objects outlined or glowing, similar to the visual effects in the video games. These seems to be fleeting and non-malignant visual experiences. Interestingly, visual distortions of physical stimuli (e.g. objects or persons) does not seem to always occur randomly or in a generalized way, but with particular […]
Abstract A variety of instruments have been developed to assess different dimensions of playing video games and its effects on cognitions, affect, and behaviors. The present study examined the psychometric properties of the Game Transfer Phenomena Scale (GTPS) that assesses nonvolitional phenomena experienced after playing video games (i.e., altered perceptions, […]
Some gamers have reported feeling sensations of body movement while lying in bed after playing. This has been reported in games that include high speed, flying or floating. Perceiving the sensation of motion (e.g., rocking, swaying, bobbing, tumbling) can take place after traveling on boats but also via air or […]
Some gamers have gotten surprised because things were not as in the game; for instance blocky trees. Click here to visit the collection of GTP adventures. I create the cartoons based on gamers’ experiences with the goal to inform, raise awareness and demystify Game Transfer Phenomena experiences.

In mid June I was invited to talk about my research into Game Transfer Phenomena at a PubhD in Nottingham. It was delightful thanks to the brilliant audience 🙂 Different events of PubhD (a space where PhDs have the opportunity to talk about their research in a colloquial way) take place in different parts […]
Some gamers have reported seeing images from the game when trying to sleep. Click here to visit the collection of GTP adventures. I create the cartoons based on gamers’ experiences with the goal to inform, raise awareness and demystify Game Transfer Phenomena experiences.
It is not common that academic research inspires an international TV series. I’m happily surprised to see my research featured on the American series CSI, as a result of my PhD at Nottingham Trent University supervised by Professor Mark D. Griffiths. My research about GTP has flourished at NTU, and […]
