On the subject of color, pyschology, and video games.
« on: July 04, 2015, 10:01:54 pm »

After watching Derpduck's Video I couldn't help but think about something I had read about during the course of my studies.

There are many studies conducted on the subject of competition; fairness, equality, psychological effects the game has on the player and what not. However there's one thing that's been over looked:

Color
Yes sir, the  :x10:'s and the  :x20:'s have been a staple in competitive environments, sports and video games alike. However, certain studies have show there to be an advantage to each color.

This video goes more detail if you wish to read on/ watch a video about the subject.

Summarization:

Red represents: Anger, Destruction, Violence, Death, Blood etc.

Blu represents: Peace, Relaxation, etc

This is why RED is my favorite color and team
I literally watched this video earlier today and I was thinking of posting it in the forums but meh.

It's non-trivial though that encouragement to aggressivity leads to higher win rates.
Seeing as most good players I know happen to prefer playing red for some aesthetic reason, my first instinct would be assigning it to that. Especially as there are some maps where the more aggressive team wins, and other maps where the first team to move out generally gets rekt.

(...)Similarly, a pro gamer isnít goint to lose to a scrub simply because she was randomly assigned to Blue.
Not even "they"...
Also, a typo.


Also, when I was younger, I would always pick black when playing chess, because it's more manly. It indeed made me feel more aggressive and eager to win.

I bought a RED TF2 T-shirt not too long ago.

I'm wearing it now; I'm still cool and collected. #MongolsAreTheException

Also, what is a Pyschology? Can I eat it?
