    Study: Average Gamer is Overweight, Depressed
    By Jane McEntegart, published on August 19, 2009 at 1:50 PM

    " A study has shown that the average gamer is 35 years old, overweight and depressed.

    MSNBC today reports that a study by the Federal Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Emory University and Andrews University shows that the average American gamer is 35 years old, overweight and often depressed.

    Researchers gathered information on the gaming habits of 552 adults in the Seattle-Tacoma area. According to MSNC, the areas was chosen because of its size as the 13th largest media market in the United States and because its Internet usage level is "the highest in the nation."

    Done in 2006, with the results analyzed in 2008, the study found that adults who played video games also reported lower extraversion. Female players were more likely to be depressed or have a "lower health status," while male video-gamers were more likely to have a higher BMI and lower extraversion.

    The report will be published in the October issue of American Journal of Preventive Medicine. "

    If you didn't drink so early in the day then maybe you wouldn't be depressed?

    I'm 37, depressed, overweight...but NOT a gamer. Maybe I should start. It sounds like my peer group.

    Just gives an even bigger excuse to stereotype the gamer =/. And what exactly defines a "gamer? Someone who plays WoW 8 hours a day, or someone who plays counterstrike once every week? (There's a big difference)

    So, I've been depressed since 1986? 1986 is when the "Nintendo Entertainment System" came out
