Gaming consoles, PC’s or Cell phones, 99% of Boys and 94% of Girls play Video Game on a regular basis.
A recent study, conducted by Pew Internet & American Life Project, has found that 99 percent of boys and 94 percent of girls play video games on a regular basis. Half of the 1,102 kids, ages 12 to 17, polled had played one within the last 24 hours.
So I guess the good old days of playing tag is really long gone. Teens obviously represent a good portion of the gaming industries clientelle. This comes to no surprise to anyone who plays online video games such as Halo 3 or Call of Duty 4. The games are pouring with young voices and with potty mouths nonetheless. The primary finding based on 1,102 includes 12-17 year olds.
Within the same study, half the boys surveyed listed a game rated by the industry’s system as “mature” as one of their favorites. I’ve always said, you can put any rating system you want on a game. Kids will play them. Heck, I did!
Is gaming a social or anti-social activity?
