Lens Blur

Lens blur is a fullscreen effect intended to replicate the visual acuity of a camera in the virtual environment. It is also known as depth blur, depth of field, or focus blur. It creates a focus-field, usually by means very similar to an alpha blend of the final image in the video buffer, which renders only objects at a given depth as solid. The others get rendered increasingly fuzzily as they move away from the target depth.

There do exist methods to determine how gamers rank in types of personality in comparison with one another, but that is a far cry from actually trying to determine the relationship to the development of the gamer personality.?
