Abstract

This paper reports our exploratory study that investigates the potential of dual monitors in facilitating multiplayer computer games (MCG's). We conducted a laboratory experiment of MCG's played with single and with dual monitors. Dual monitors were used to display awareness information about team players. Participants showed overwhelming interest in playing games with dual monitors. Overall, they found dual monitors useful in supporting their games as dual monitors facilitate team communication and stimulate informal communication.
