A content analysis of popular video game soundtracks

The aim of this thesis is to investigate and identify if a certain element of a video game's soundtrack, whether it be the dialogue, sound effects, or music, develops more immersion in a player than the others. The preliminary research of this Thesis offers recommendations for future studies and experiments as well. Two video game soundtracks were examined by the researcher and then reviewed for the aesthetic and immersive qualities within each of the individual elements.
