Analysis of Game Interface PerformancePublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
This study tested the effects of different interfaces on players' performance in racing games. Participants raced each other on three different configurations, a PC with a keyboard, a PC with a gamepad, and a PlayStation2 with a gamepad. Participants switched setups after each race. We found a slight advantage in performance, as measured by lap time, mean speed, and place, when using a gamepad over a keyboard. Learning, experience, and skill had a much larger effect than the interface.
