Women Play Video Games Too

Now more than ever, women are showing off their skills in the formerly male-dominated world of video games.

The trend seems to be partially fueled by the recent increase in the popularity of interactive social media, but other factors come into play as well.

As a gamer myself, I can attest that I do, on occasion, after the chaos of a mind-shredding video combat session, realize that I have just suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of a girl, but I’m a modern information age man, so I can take it in stride.

That’s not to say that video games never cause friction between men and women. In fact, internet and video game related habits have ruined marriages.

Not only that, but women aren’t the only dynamic demographic in play.

For instance, lots of people over 50 are buying video games for their own use.

The Entertainment Software Association recently did a survey to develop a cross-section and opinion profile of gamers. Some of the results may surprise you.
