5.1 Summary of findings
From this experiment, we can conclude that different games do not result in different heart rates. However, there is a change of the subject’s heart rate when they are gaming compared to when they are relaxed.
5.2 Practical Applications
This can be applied to other studies on gaming and also let others know that all genres of video games makes us feel excited. This could also help people know what is happening when they are playing video games, and discourage people to play video games before activities such as revision or sleeping as all video games increases our heart rate.
5.3 Areas for further study
We can include a reflection for our test subjects, asking how they felt when gaming, whether they were very excited, tense, etc.. We can add a section for video games with high physical activities such as WII games to the experiment. We can also try to use neural sensors on our subject. We can also make observations on the behaviour of the subject, for example, when the subject get closer to the screen.
