    A new study shows that people who like videogames and have nothing better to do, play more of them than people who have less free time. In other news, the sun has been discovered to be a major source of light.

    “…77% of senior gamers reported being retired.”

    The other 23% are unemployed!

    One of the hazards of using this data to support claims about popular video games is that the data collection doesn’t distinguish very well between, say, a bit of Wii Sports at a family gathering, or a few minutes of Solitaire while bored at work, or Tetris/Snake/etc. on the phone while waiting for a bus, and playing GTA IV or BioShock. The data on platforms gives us a little information, but not enough.

    In other words, while the data shows the people who play games, it doesn’t show how many of those might consider themselves ‘gamers’.
