lol

Agree, a better question to use would of been, "How many hours a day do you spend playing video games?" or "How many hours a week?".

Though, had a lot of peeps in tech school wondering how I manage to play video games, draw, and study all in one day. Time management is very useful tool. thumb.gif

Hmmm, I see they broke down into age groups, but don't see by gender in the age group.

The rural one don't surprise me. Internet sucks out here, especially the cost of it. So online gaming is a no go most of the time.

The reason I said that because every mother I know would say "that xbox/ps4/whatever is mine, I paid for it"... even though it's most likely in the child's room and they wouldn't even know how to power it on.

The only real exception would probably be the wii. That's a mom-friendly console. lol

She should have bought some lingerie instead. Would have saved like $150.

See this is what we call a smart man right here.........though I will say if a girl bought a gaming console just for me to visit more often, it would be super effective.

That goes with what I said earlier in this thread. My mom bought every console I owned except for my last 2 Xbox 360's. She bought me an N64, PS1, PS2 (best Christmas evar since they were all sold out), Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, Original Xbox, GameCube, PS3, and the first 2 Xbox 360's I had. idk who bought the Sega Genesis we had lol

Yes but difference being that the lingerie would be used less frequently than the console

Wow, reading this thread and it suddenly makes sense why women often have a hard time online.

Last night I had a great time playing Portal 2 with a girl I'm seeing - she played with a controller on my HTPC whilst I played on my computer. It worked out pretty well because she is used to a controller from playing on her xBox a lot. She also has a Wii.

I've never had a console, hence why I suck at using a controller.

Sounds like a keeper - making an effort to share an interest with you is a good thing, and ultimately more important in a relationship than the... other stuff.

Guys, lingerie was never a problem to begin with! I'm a lucky guy. Now she's considering building me a mITX computer to leave at her house so we can play Guild Wars 2 together more often when I'm at her place. Sounds like a win for me!

What kool-aid are you guys drinking?

What agenda are you talking about? The one where some members of a household purchase things and others don't?

At what point in the article or the study to they make any feminist, "SJW" arguments?

They would ask who purchased the console, just like the study says... it is very clearly a study on who purchases products, not who uses them.

Where did this even come from? Why is it relevant?

Hint: A vast majority of Baudrillard's work is on how mediated images (i.e. the way the press disseminates information through "disaster porn", 24-hour news cycles, catastrophes both ecological and manmade, etc.), like this study, are used to skew perceptions of reality in order to fit political agendas and establish order over a discourse's subject - kind of like you are arguing... are you sure you know what you're talking about here? doh.gif


Don't get me wrong - I have no real stake in any gamergate nonsense (other than observing knee-jerk reactions to apolitical statements that allows otherwise reasonable people make hyperbolic twists in logic), and I don't think this study means anything, but that's just it - there's no feminist agenda here, there's no talk of women being the new gamers or whatever, Anita Sarkeesian and co have not used this study to further any agenda... so what are you guys on about?

As far as I can read the study merely shows which demographics purchase which kinds of technology... any other conclusions you folks draw are just leaps of your own imagination, and the very thing you're accusing "SJWs" of doing...
