Women gamers up, again

As Ars Techina reports:

According to the [Entertainment Software Association]’s measure of 2013 sales, women ages 18 and over now constitute 36 percent of all measured gamers, compared to boys under the age of 18, who represent 17 percent of the total population.

Overall, 48 percent of those playing video games now are women. And nearly 4 in 10 of all game players are now 36 years of age or older.

    So the idea that “Women” play more games may seem hardly complimentary; I would imagine it’s akin to saying “Those who chew more gum” relates to a group having any serious significance.

    I wondered if the ‘games’ they were counting were things like Bejeweled and Farmville.
