Does screen brightness affect how well you play your games?

I usually have my screen brightness on about 20-30% but today I turned it up to 100% and I significantly beat my highscores in Run!, Minigore and two levels of flight control. I was just wondering if anyone else finds that they play better when the screen brightness is higher?

YES definitely, I play Real Racing and A4E better with higher brightness. Things stick out more, and if you don't think it does help, how about you try to play minigore with the lowest brightness compared to the highest. It does help.

Have you tried playing dark games with 20% brightness?
Question should be is there anyone else that plays dark games at 20% brightness?

More contrast makes the game elements more visible, obviously making gameplay easier. Doesn't necessarily make you play any better.

Yup he didn't even say anything offensive. What's with the outright rudeness?
