That's not the only gamer data that's a bit on the worrisome side:
"The study notes that half of gamers are between 18 and 49 years old, while 25 percent are 50 and older. The CDC also pointed out that of online gamers aged 8 to 34, nearly 12 percent showed multiple signs of addiction."
I wonder what signs those are? I wonder how many of us here at Anime Vice show some of those signs, whether it's for addiction to games or to anime? Another interesting tidbit is that women say they're looking more for a diversion from their normal lives while men are more likely to use gaming as "a reason to get together." Does that sound at all accurate for your style of gameplay?
Als-- we all knew the stereotypes about fat, socially awkward gamers. But are any of you surprised by the average age?
