Abstract: Brain lateralization refers to hemispheric dominance for different tasks. Lateralization of the brain and body has been consistently reported in the literature. An extreme right-hand preference has been reported among most people throughout the world. However, gesture control involves coordination among the eye, hand, and foot, and the lateralization pattern of all three is expected to influence such gestures. This study examines the effect of lateral bias in gesture-based video games. The experiment involved 23 students playing a gesture- based game on an Xbox console to determine the interplay of hand-foot lateralization in gesture-based games. The findings are discussed in light of game design and lateral bias in gesture-based games.
