Perhaps it would be worth looking at where all that money comes from, then.

In 2012 US consumers spent $8.4 billion on console games, including your preorders of Medal of Honor Warfighter and Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor.

That same year the Candy Crush crowd spent $6.5 billion on casual websites, mobile gaming and social network based games.

If your criteria of "Gamer" means "spends a lot of money on games", then that's a fifteen billion dollar pile of gamers right there. It's not until you change the definition to mean "only likes the kind of games that I personally like and only in the way that I like them" that you get to pretend that 43% of that demographic doesn't exist.

Oh and btw, where are all the complaints when a game character is a muscled 6 foot tall guy who can lift a ton?

Is he only allowed to wear clothing that can fit inside of a Tic-Tac box? Is his entire purpose in the story to tell the female protagonist how awesome she is and then get killed at a dramatic moment so that she will have something to be angry about? And are there copies of him in half of the movies, books, video games and TV shows on the market?

No? Then it's not the same thing at all.

Don't like a game? Don't play it and shut up.

I'm curious. Would you like us to do as you say, or do as you do?

In the glory gays of gaming you could swear and taunt and not have to worry about getting arrested for homophobia, racism, anti-semitism, misogyny etc.

Whereas nowadays SWAT teams are standing by to immediately arrest and imprison people for inappropriate use of language.

Heck, I'm still picketing the Supreme Court demanding the release of Mel Gibson.

Is a person who blows up banks an econoclast?
