'Why Gaming is a Positive Element in Life' Infographic Sheds Lights Gamers

Geeks can now feel a little less guilty about having their eyes bleed for hours in front of gaming screens with the 'Why Gaming is a Positive Element in Life' Infographic. This poster shows the common misconceptions of gamers and addresses them as falsities.

In reality, only nine percent of children under 18 years of age that play games are considered "hardcore gamers." For those who believe the common consensus from adults renders gaming as ill practice, you may be surprised to know that 63 percent of parents believe that gaming is a positive part of their children's lives. Furthermore, the ratio of female to male gamers is nearly 1:1. These are merely a few facts that show what gaming is really like in today's culture and that letting it be might not be such a bad idea.
