Abstract

A plethora of research has examined video games in the context of training and violence. However, little has been done in examining the individual differences that may exist as it relates to success or failure during game play. Few studies have focused on empirically testing usability and performance issues specifically related to sports games. In this study, a football simulation video game was used to investigate how video game experience interacts with football knowledge in explaining performance within the game. Football video game simulations are a complicated game that appears best played when the user has both knowledge of football and experience playing video games. This study has implications for the individual differences that dictate performance within games.
