Breaking gamer stereotypes

When I ask someone what a stereotypical gamer looks like the reply is often a "young, male who plays video games all by himself".

However, this is often far from the truth. 

The Chart of the day from ABC yesterday looked at how online gamers don't fit the stereotype of being young and male.

Interesting, right?

But this is just for online gamers in Australia. What about gamers in general from around the world?

Well, I looked at 3 different surveys from US, Europe and Australia and found some interesting results. 

I wrote a quick article that provides a summary of what a stereotypical gamer actually looks like. And it may surprise you...
