Researchers from Stanford University have found that playing video games while angry can make you a worse player. The researchers showed participants video clips that were intended to make them feel amused, enthusiastic, angry, or sad. They then examined how the participants performed in the popular soccer game ‘FIFA 19’. Players who watched positive video clips performed much better against a computer opponent than the other participants. In addition, we observed that players who have greater confidence in their abilities and get more physiologically involved in the game achieve better results, Researchers told IFLScience. The results of the study suggest that inducing positive emotions before gaming can make esports players perform better
