According to a recent study conducted by Twitch and social researcher Neil Howe, it turns out that the image of a lonely antisocial nerdy kid in his parent’s home is a bit more than inaccurate. The study actually shows that Gamers tend to be more social well Educated and successful than Non-Gamers.
gamers are more likely to be living with others, such as family, friends or significant others, and are more likely to agree with the following statement: “My friends are the most important thing in my life”, having 57% of gamers agree with the statement. – eteknix says
Also gamers turns out to be more likely to work full time with a 42% of Gamers stating they have a full-time job compared to a 39% of Non-Gamers.
Our Opinion : While we all know this fact as Gamers, we have to note that one could question the results. Since gamers could have deliberately answered the questionnaires the way they did in order to boost their image. In our point of view, even though the above could be true, the study results do depict the actual state of Gamers.
