Adults play video games. Deal with it. In a study last year by Entertainment Software Association, it was determined that women over 18 comprised of 36% of the gaming population (including mobile, PC and console platforms. Adult males accounted for 35% of the population while teenage boys (under 18) only make up 17% of the gaming demographic – contrary to popular belief.
