I like these studies. Reminds me that I should finally get that Fallout 3 disc installed.
Studies claim videogame players enjoy richer, better lives – Gaming
The findings of the studies, one emanating from Canada and one from America, fly in the face of typical stereotypes portraying gamers as overweight teenage couch potatoes leading a largely sedentary lifestyle while wholly devoted to their console of choice.
Some of the statistics unearthed by the Entertainment Software Association of Canada study suggest that one in two Canadians is a gamer and has actively played a software title within the last month, while half of the countryâ..s game-playing demographic is female, over 80 percent indulge in a world of videogames for around 7.1 hours per week, and the average age of a Canadian gamer is actually 40.
â..Family gaming is becoming a big part of Canadian familiesâ.. pastime. Mom, dad and the kids are all playing together,â. enthused Nicole Helsburg, spokeswoman for the Entertainment Software Association of Canada. â..Those who grew up playing games have taken that into their adult lives and are now embracing that as a way to spend time with their kids.â.
