British researchers conclude hard-core gamers are not all acned teenagers

Shock, horror. The findings are not entirely unexpected:

“Over 60% of players were older than 19.
About 85% of players were male.
Fifteen percent of people play for more than 50 hours a week.
A “significant minority” (15%) adopt a character gender opposite to their own.”

But it’s good to see some research along these lines.
