The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) yesterday revealed the results of a new study conducted by Peter D. Hart Research Associates that shows more parents of gamers are becoming gamers themselves. The survey looked at a random national sample of 454 "gamer" parents-defined as parents that play computer and video games, but who do not solely play desktop card games or children's games, and have children between the ages of 2 and 17.
The research found that 39 percent of gamer moms play computer or video games at least once a week and 37 percent play games with their children at least once a week. Gamer moms also play games with their spouses fairly often. 59 percent of couples that said they play computer and video games reported playing together.
