Age ain't nothin' but a number: a recent study has some surprising news about the facts and ages of gamers — specifically, that the average age of a gamer is 35.

The study also found that gamers are typically heavier and less healthy, which is not a huge surprise, but a disappointing affirmation of a stereotype that I often defend.

I know that casual gaming is hot for seniors, but I'm a bit surprised to hear that the average age is 35.


Sure, my Atari generation is growing up, but a new gamer is born every day — I thought it may be younger.

What do you think?
