I think anyone over 21 is considered an adult, so maybe in their survey, most of their 20 somethings said yeah they game, but the 40+ crowd only a few, so it avg's to over half...

It fails because your parents dont? Well I dont think they make up over 50% of the population.

My stepdad does. I think the Wii also added a lot to that number.

i work at gamestop (nothing to brag about the place sucks balls) .... you'd be quite surprised....and they probably included all the systems just says "Video games"....i didnt read the article but consider Wii and Wii Fit......more to old people than kids (at my store) buy games for the wii...old people want to bowl without going anywhere...and Wii Fit sh!t i get so many old people call about Wii Fit it is aggravating...just look at ebay Wii Fit like #1 for how long LOL.......anyways in my conclusion...i agree with them...i dont know about 50%..mabye like 40% but still.

Someone needs to find a way to have that Achievement/Trophy sound happen when her kids accomplish something.
