Industry Vets Define the Modern Gamer Stereotype

Kombo - N'Gai Croal, founder of Hit Detection, a consultant firm that specializes in videogame design, consumer technology and media strategy, said that he "doesn't think that playing Rock Band or Guitar Hero is really gaming."

"I identify the word 'gamer' still with the core audience of the 13 to 30 year old male," Croal said. He "doesn't think this new audience really identifies with those core gamers."
