    Default 97% of today’s kids are video gamers

    According to a new survey from the *** Internet & American Life Project 97% of young people today play video games in one form or another–boys and girl alike. And when they play video games, they often play them with someone else, ether in person or online. Two-thirds play face-to-face, the survey found, while a quarter play online with other people. “It shows that gamers are social people,” says Amanda Lenhart, a senior researcher at ***. “They communicate just as much. They spend time face-to-face, just as much as other kids. They e-mail and text.”



    The kids these days game fairly often, too, with 50% of them saying they had played a video game the previous day. And even though many underage respondents said they had played or owned several M- and AO-rated games, the *** researchers were quick to distance themselves from making any proclamations about video games and real world violence. Instead, Joseph Kahne, a study co-author and dean of the education school at Mills College in California, said games like Halo–while violent–provided “more than average opportunities for players to help one another.”

    Other surveys concluded that the average gamer is 30+. This makes sense seeing as how people who grew up with NES would be approx 30 if they had NES at 7!

    Think about it pong, coleco vision, atari, you name it all those people are 30+ now. If they stuck with it then... well you get the picture. However im sure more youth are gamers then were from the last generation or so.
