QuoteIf you had to visualize someone who self-describes as a "gamer," what would you see? A 13 year old boy who doesn't have many friends? A college student who prefers playing games on his futon to going to class? An overweight guy in his 40s living in his parents' basement?  Let's face it: the stereotypes for gamers aren't glamorous. However, a new report based on a survey by LifeCourse Associates for the gaming site Twitch has found that gamers have more positive attributes than their non-gamer counterparts.

It's all true, every word of it, apart from the bit where it says people that play Candy Crush are gamers, that might be pushing it a bit too far  :LOL:

Good read   :thumbsup:

I'm on level 268 of candy crush. Do I count as a gamer?

Good article.
