Submission + - Average gamer is 35, fat and bummed 1 1

kamapuaa writes: According to a study published in the upcoming October issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, US Video game players average 35, are fatter than average, and tend towards depression. Specifically, women video games players tended towards depression, while male video game players tended towards large BMIs. While the study itself points to several conclusions, one researcher noted: "habitual use of video games as a coping response may provided a genesis for obsessive-compulsive video-game playing, if not video-game addiction."
