Okay, so i cosplay. I don't go to conventions or anything (i'm not a weirdo) i just dress up as video game characters to play the games in the comfort of my own home. People say it's weird, but it's not. It's just the next step up from playing using surround sound. The reasons i do it are not just aesthetic, oh no. When i'm dressed up i feel more in the game. My reflexes are a little faster. I see items i would otherwise miss. My overall in game performance goes up, and therefore my score. I'm currently working on a way of proving this. I've never been one to follow the scientific method since it's too restrictive, but i'm going to film myself playing three games wearing normal cloths, record my scores etc. And then film myself playing the same three games dressed up as the character i'll be assuming the role of, and again recording the scores. It is my hope to revolutionise the way video games are played. So future releases may actually be packaged with an outfit to wear whilest playing, to enhance both the in game experience, and performance.
