If 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.

Gamers are more likely to consider family a top priority than non-gamers (82% vs 68%) as well as placing a high importance on friends (57% vs 35%).

  1. I have been surfing online more than three hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web
    owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
