With new data from a Pew Research Center survey, we know that women play an even bigger role in the gaming community. Of the 40% of Americans who own a video game console, 42% are women and only 37% are men.
Fun with stats!
I love it. In the article, it emphasizes that mobile devices don’t count as consoles, because literally the immediate comeback of male gamers who are confronted with stats like this is “lol but that includes candy crush right?”. I just choose to downplay my gaming in most social situations because I just don’t want to deal with that kind of condescension, gate-keeping, and/or being treated like a magical unicorn (which is arguably the worst part of it).
