Makes me wonder if the number of female gamers will ever be equal to the number of male gamers.

jneul2878d ago

haha atleast there are more of us:-D

Dark_Charizard2878d ago (Edited 2878d ago )

Gamer or not, there are more males on the earth. We are made to dominate everything! :P

@Dark_Charizard

Is that right? I know that as far as birth rates go, you have about a 50.5% chance of having a girl and 49.5% chance of having a boy. Women also have longer life expectancy. So if what you say is true, it must be because of things like the one child policy china had and the desire to have a boy, meaning there are only more men because little girls have been left to die on the street....

@ thor

While I can't disagree with the one child policy (since that is fact), the last part about little girls being left out on the street is a bit of a stretch.

That is what I was talking about... things like this would be the only thing to sway the population to having more men... the other factors I mentioned should mean there are more women...

Had no idea the average gamer age was 32.

iamnsuperman2878d ago

Same that's the one that shocked me the most

Dark_Charizard2878d ago (Edited 2878d ago )

The average user's age on N4G is still probably 12...

ReBurn2878d ago

lol...N4G. Where middle school lasts forever.

Ducky2878d ago (Edited 2878d ago )

I'm guessing it includes all the 95 year olds that play wii sports?
:D

Simon_Brezhnev2878d ago (Edited 2878d ago )

that couldnt be true for 360 crowd probably PS3 and Wii. Since the Wii has old to young audiences.

etowntwo2878d ago

I'm 35 ... and this is probable the 6 gen of consoles I'm playing.

Video games have just become so much more mainstream and accepted cause it's just the new age of entertainment like movies and it's only going to get better and better.

Chug2878d ago

It's really not that surprising. That age group (which includes myself) grew up playing Atari, NES, Genesis, etc.

Drekken2878d ago

Why wouldn't we be avg of 32? The entitled generation of today is by far not the first gen of gamers.

Gaming is not just a kid thing. It is a legitimate source of entertainment for all ages.
