Notes
Disappointingly little about the ear.... Mainly making the case for using cognitive psychology for computer game analysis and understanding as opposed to semiotic, narrative and linguistic theories etc. Since cognitive psychology is to do with perception, thus 'ear' in the title I suppose.

Quotes
pp.129-130, Chapter 6   "...video games and other types of interactive virtual reality are simulations of basic modes of real-life experiences. This means that cognitive psychology provides many advantages as a tool for describing video games compared with a semiotic approach."   Added by: sirfragalot
Keywords:   Cognition
p.133   "...a purely linguistic model may seriously impede descriptions of those media like video games that rely on a series of nonverbal skills."   Added by: sirfragalot
p.137   Takes Brenda Laurel (1993) to task for comparing the computer metaphorically to theatre since the human faculties required for theatre "are neither exhaustive nor exclusive to theater."
