p.66   While discussing the variety of video game representations of space, the 10th type is the three-dimensional environment (interactive). "Battlezone was also the first game to feature off-screen sound and events; sounds of the player's tank getting hit indicated an off-screen tank's attack, alerting the player to turn and fight. The first-person perspective increased the importance of off-screen space because it positioned the player within the space subjectively, as opposed to the third-person objective view in eariler games. This shift also allowed a more mature usage of off-screen space and one closer to that of cinematic off-screen space."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
