NPD study: Video games are family activity and stress reducer

A study done by "bringers of the sales data" NPD found that people prefer to play video games together and that a majority of gamers view playing as a way to alleviate stress. Once again, like many studies, there's a lot of "duh" here, but the thing about studies is that until somebody actually does one the data stays anecdotal. The study finds that 63% of the US population play video games, with 30% saying they are playing more games than last year, 30% saying they are playing less games, and 40% saying they are playing about the same amount.
