Game Experiment: Gamma

Take part in a real-life experiment!
Researchers from the University of York want you to play a game they’ve made – and after you’ve finished, they’ll explain how what you just did helped to create new science!
Not only that, but you will get your results from the experiment and an explanation of what they might mean: You may even learn something new about yourself by playing too.
Take part now – have fun, and also help scientists to understand games (and gamers) better!

What are you greek?

go have another crisis ya shmuck

what was with that "fps"? i stood around for 3 minuetes and then later got asked 14 questions about it where i answered not at all for all because none of it was relevant

this game is boring,and it isn't fun. please don't put accept this.

i like it

When filling the words, I don't think I was affected by playing the shooter game before, but because the words had similar context. If you filled 'do_ as dog', 'c_t / cat', 'fis_ / fish', 'she_p / sheep' and then saw 'co_', you are way more likely to fill in 'cow' rather than 'cog'.
The same here; I think people will know what you want them to fill in just by looking at the words, so they will either do just that, or spend time trying to think up alternatives for the apparent picks. Perhaps adding some unrelated word clutter might make your intent less obvious, but I'm not a psychologist, so I don't know.
In the game itself, the movement speed could be a little faster (jump could also help), but that's not really what this all was about, so it doesn't matter much.

Good Luck with your experiment. :)
