Study: Gamers twice as likely to go on dates than non-gamers

October 27, 2008

A new study put forward by IGN Entertainment and Ipsos MediaCT found that gamers are actually more sociable than non-gamers.

The best part:

Gamers are twice as likely to go out on dates as nongamers in a given month

I’m glad this goes against the stereotype that gamers are fat mouth-breathers. I personally have been attracted to gamers are all along; they’re fun people! What’s not to love? It’s so fun getting a good frag on the guy you’re crushing on. Perhaps the most romantic, self-less behaviour, though, would be when a guy acts as your personal medic haha ^^ (Of course taking turns is the nice thing to do.)

    “new gamers – those who have started playing videogames in the past two years—are 32 years old on average”
    WoW! Is that console or pc-driven newcomers?
    Overall very interesting, indeed!

    Oh, and btw, what does it means when I act as a personal medic for a friend? Do I have a crush on him/her? Better he not misunderstand it if it’s a “him” haha ^^

    As a mouth-breathing loveless fatboy, I take exception to this study. Literally! 😉
