A recent report from the Entertainment Software Association revealed that the average age of someone who plays games is 31 years old. In fact, more gamers are over the age of 36 than between the ages of 18 to 35 or under the age of 18.
It's somewhat refreshing to see many of the age-old stereotypes debunked, regarding both the age and genders of gamers in 2014.
There is no longer a stereotypical game-player. Most people have a job, relationship and responsibilities, and fit time in for a game around that, whether it takes us four hours or four weeks. But none of us fit into one nice easy-fix box, suitable for marketers.
The report contains a fascinating amount of data, providing essential reading for anyone with a genuine interest in games industry. For instance, this is the first time digital game downloads now represent 53 percent of software revenue.
