Can You Be The Calmest Video Game Player?
from the different-sort-of-challenges dept
We were recently talking about different kinds of video game input systems that required much more athletic moves to play a game – pointing out that this could solve some of the issues with gamers not getting any exercise. Well, there’s also some movement in the other direction, as this article describes a gaming device that requires you to be as calm as possible. It comes with three sensors you attach to yourself, which measure your heart rate and perspiration. The calmer you are, the better you perform in the game. This is, of course, a standard biofeedback system for getting people to relax – but now they’re just going commercial with it by attaching it to a game. While it sounds like it has some novelty, which will get it attention, I’m not sure that it sounds any fun at all.

It used to be just steroids.
The real challange.....
Now, it might actually be a challenge if the game were to periodically throw up disturbing imagery or playback loud, piercing noise randomly as to shock the player. If you could keep your calm through that, then you would be the true zen master.
