  • OMG! Your mom is a gamer!

    The following is quoted from my GameSpy Daily Newsletter.

    Mom: Night Owl Gamer? - Prophet
    According to a survey conducted by AOL, women over 40 years old are spending the most time playing casual online games, outstripping teens and males by a large margin. The survey was conducted online with a pool of 3,613 between mid-December and mid-January. According to the survey results, U.S. women over the age of 40 spend nearly 50 percent more time each week playing online games than men and are more likely to play online games on a daily basis - more than men or teens. The survey also found that for some 20 percent of women over the age of 40 said that online relationships grew into real world relationships. The survey was conducted online with 3,613 respondents between mid-December and mid-January and conducted by Digital Marketing Services.


    Woot to all the gamer women out there!

    Damn. Why couldn't the demographic have been "women ages 25-35"?

        I'm sure they're relieved they don't have to worry about running into the likes of you, then.

                      I saw this bit on Fox News a couple days ago. Didn't surprise me at all. Now you all know that I never pretended to be 16 years old and this oldie does not play puzzle games. I did help a student of mine get through a tough section in Halflife during class one time and used to be part of a UT clan at school.....got in trouble for that. So be afraid. The oldies are infiltrating.......now where did I put my bifocals....
