There may be more E games out there then other category but that does not mean that games are still just for kids. I will gladly play a Mario game and have fun with it. I just think E stands for every one like it does. It means any one can play it. It will not be to hard for a new comer or be boring for some one that has been playing games for a long time.

Also for the part about that in 06 that there was only 14% of M games on the market that does not mean they do not sell, It happens to be the opposite they sell through the roof and that is why you have people like Jack get all mad when they sell.

But there will always be E games yet at the same time it does not mean only kids are playing them. If they are fun that is all that matters to me.

Yea tell that to the surplus of Wii and DS owners. Along with the many who bought the systems with their own money they got from their jobs.

edit: not to mention the boat load of M rated titles out there that sell quite well.

This business people are stupid. More adults own PS3 than kids.

It's not just the PS3 man, the average gamer is over 18 anyway. Hell check out how many kids there are in WoW's 9mil+ subscribers.

Chubear4664d ago

NO. Actually, the average gamer is 33 not 18.

Skerj4664d ago (Edited 4664d ago )

That's why I said "over" 18 :D At the time I couldn't remember the average age but I knew it was over 18, which is considered the age of adulthood. Which everyone knows 25 is the age you're truly an adult, insurance premiums go down woot.

...Bioshock was a "sleeper" hit?! Yeah, hardly anybody knew about or bought it. Really under-the-radar that one ROFL!

I just think it's funny that a large portion of the public has the misconception that only kids play videogames, while a large portion of gamers have the miconception that only kids play the Wii.
