dc.description.abstract Previous research has examined the connection between exercise, games, and virtual reality. The present study examined the influence of augmented reality exergaming on positive and negative affect, intentions for future engagement, and enjoyment. Participants were randomly assigned to one of two conditions, a more immersive condition that utilized a virtual reality (VR) headset for the exergames or a less immersive condition that utilized a large screen. Participants’ positive and negative affect were measured using the Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS), and their enjoyment was measured using the Physical Activity Enjoyment Scale (PACES). Contrary to what was hypothesized, there were no significant differences in pre- and posttest positive and negative affect between conditions. In addition, there were no significant differences in intentions for future engagement in the exergame. Furthermore, greater enjoyment of the exergame was not reported by participants who engaged in less regular exercise. Finally, participants did not underestimate the amount of time they engaged in the exergame. Future researchers might focus on extending the intervention length or manipulating the immersion level to a greater degree.
