Soccer has always been one of the most popular videogame genres. When designing a soccer game, designers tend to focus on the game field and game play due to the limited computational resources, and thus the modelling of virtual spectators is paid less attention. In this study we present a novel approach to the modeling of spectator behavior, which treats each spectator as a unique individual. We also propose an independent software layer for sport-based games that simply obtains the game status from the game engine via a simple messaging protocol and computes the spectator behavior accordingly. The result is returned to the game engine, to be used in the animation and rendering of the spectators. Additionally, we offer a customizable spectator knowledge base with well structured XML to minimize coding efforts, while generating individualized behavior. The employed AI is based on fuzzy inference. In order to overcome additional demand for computing realistic spectator behavior, we use GPU parallel computing with CUDA.

Soccer possibly has the majority fans and may be the most fashionable sport in the global sporting field and at least 240 million people frequently participate in soccer (FIFA, 2000). While adolescence players are mostly not professional and have no fiscal worth for their school or probably for their clubs, but their sustained physical condition and security has a critical value. The matter of balance is considered as one of the critical issues in sports especially in soccer. On the other hand human beings ...

Özgider, Can; Koçak, Mehmet Settar; Department of Physical Education and Sports (2016)
Soccer is one of the most popular sports in the world and there has been a growing increase in the total number of stadium attendance of soccer games rates over 50 years. Individuals have different motivations for consuming soccer games. However, it is very hard to identify these motivational factors. Therefore, sport marketers should use these motivations to recognize their intended populations. In this context, the aim of this research was to examine the motivational factors affecting sports fans’ partici...
The Effects of Exercise Order on the Psychophysiological Responses, Physical and Technical Performances of Young Soccer Players: Combined Small-Sided Games and High-Intensity Interval Training

Simple Summary: Small-sided games are very popular training methods, among other commonly used strategies, for enhancing the functional and sport-specific skills of young soccer players. In addition, high-intensity interval training has the potential to increase the aerobic capacity of youths. No study has compared the order effects of combined small-sided games and high-intensity interval training on the physical performances, psychophysiological responses, and technical skills of young soccer players. The...
Raising Awareness Through Games: The Influence of a Trolling Game on Perception of Toxic Behavior
KOMAÇ, GÖKÇE; Çağıltay, Kürşat (Springer, 2021-01-01)
The use of video games for purposes other than entertainment has become an appealing area of research. In recent years, games have become actors that support social and political change by raising awareness, i.e., persuasive games. In this study, we focus on a persuasive game that portrays toxic online behaviors, often considered as trolling: spamming, flaming, trash-talking, misdirection and using offensive language. To observe the influence of a trolling game that we designed as a tool for raising awarene...
