ESA research shows more Americans are playing games on smartphones, tablets, and handhelds; consumers spent nearly $25 billion on game content, hardware, and accessories in 2011.
And nappy Parents sanctioned the survey.
No way in hell am i clicking on that video.
^ What Tommy said.
It says the average age of a U.S. gamer is 30 which makes sense since gaming has been around 40+ years. TBH I figured it would be a tad older as I am older than 30 as well as all of my gaming friends.
Same here. *Gaming Geezer High Five*

But I thought we knew this last year?
"ESA research shows more Americans are playing games on smartphones, tablets, and handhelds" Oh here we go. Mama plays Angry Birds and Pops plays solitaire, so they're "gamers" I played Baseball once, too. Guess I'm an "athlete"
And I've moved my lips without saying anything. That must mean I'm a singer! Where the hell is my millions of dollars?!
It just goes to show that hardcore gamers are indeed a minority.
No, it doesn't. It shows that people are using the term "gamer" too loosely. People have been playing solitaire on their computer for decades. They were never considered gamers back then, so what's changed? Gamer has always meant someone who had more than a passing interest in games. Not just in one game, not in a game every now and then. In GAMES. In GAMING. All this crap about how casual "gamers" still count as "real" gamers is just that: crap.
