    I wonder where they got their stats. I'd like to believe 44% of gamers are female now, but it seems hard to believe. Maybe their definition of "gamer" is different than mine.

    Well I don't think they're limiting it to hardcore gamers.

    I have a LOT of female gamer friends, fwiw.

    It seems fair to me. I know as many female gamers as male.

    Agreed, +Eoghann Irving . I guess I don't think of playing Wii as being a "gamer" but hey… they're games. :) And I do realize the number of female hard-core gamers is rising, I just didn't realize/think that we were close to 50/50.

    Wii gaming is about the only sort I do. Anything else is just too time consuming these days.

    I know guys (and gals) who will spend hours gaming. They get home from work and spend the next 4-5 hours gaming. They spend their entire weekend gaming. That level of gaming just isn't for me at this stage of life. I like something that I can play for 30-60 minutes at a time and then go do something else. I'm not looking to master a game, I'm just looking to have fun.

    Playing Zelda on a Wii is equally ''gaming' as playing it on any other console.

    And it seems perfectly normal for a lot of people to sit themselves in front of the tv for 4-5 hours in an evening.

    +Cathryn Orchard Yes, many people do spend 4-5 hours in front of the tv every evening. I'm not one of them. I watch about 5-7 hours of television a week, including what I watch on Netflix and Hulu. I have nothing against hardcore gamers. I'm just not one of them anymore.

    I'm sure I spend more time watching tv than gaming, but part of that is because the TV doesn't require the uninterrupted concentration that more serious games require.

    Not to imply that you were one of them Keith :)

    Zelda is a fantasy game, of course it "counts" on any platform. :) I was thinking more of my Mommy friends who play Wii Fit or Wii Sports, but do not label themselves "a gamer."

    I think there's some snobbery in the gaming community. If you spend 5 hours a day gaming, you're a gamer. If you spend 5 hours a month gaming, you're not a gamer.

    My mum probably plays around 3 hours of Bejewelled sytle games in an evening and I am sure she wouldn't consider herself a 'gamer'. I am going to make her a 'hardcore casual gamer' t-shirt since I like the seeming contradiction.
