Hello! I am conducting an experiment for my pyschology class.

And with that, a test subject is needed. (You guys)

My Topic: Does playing videogames affect reaction time?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For those of you who would like to take part in the experiment:

1. What is your age and gender?
2.Do you play videogames at least once a week?
3.If yes, what is your most played genre? (eg. fps, rts, sports, etc.)
4. What is your reaction time? Use this site to test! http://www.fetchfido.co.uk/games/reaction/reaction_test.htm
(Report your average score)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I would be GREATLY appreciative of anybody who decides to help me as this experiment accounts for a large chunk of my grade

thanks!

That's weird because I remember doing a reaction test when all i used to play was FPS's. That was about 0.4 average back then. Really strange since I used to kick ass online.

on a side note, my brother has dyslexia and played a lot of video games as a kid. Dyslexia can affect hand eye coordination, my mum reckons playing video games is the reason his was never that bad.
Good Luck!

1) 17, M.
2) Yes.
3) I don't play much now. The only real game that I still play (occasionally) is WoW, and I still think that's an overstatement because I find myself swarmed by work every week, so other than the 10 minute farm session I had for Jeeves I did not touch WoW at all recently.

Other than that, I've been playing O2Jam (A rhythm game) to get my video game fix, but not have to spend too much time.

I've also spent 5 years playing Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory seriously, a first-person shooter. Have played other FPS, but never liked the way the avatar handled in the other games.

4) 0.124.

Naw just kidding. 0.257.
