Video Game Stats: The average gamer is 34 years old? [infographic]

Whether your favorite game is Mario Kart, Call of Duty, Rock Band or Madden NFL, it seems almost everyone can enjoy a video game once in a while. In fact, 67% of American households — that’s 2 out of every 3 — have a video game console in their home. Even more surprising, the average gamer is NOT a little kid who isn’t even old enough to get a job. The average person who plays video games is 34 years old. Wow.

Some of the more interesting statistics:
» 40% of gamers are female; 80% of female players use Wii
» 41% of male gamers use Wii, 38% XBox and 21% PS3
» 48% of parents play video games with their kids at least once a week
» The average gamer plays 8 hours of video games per week

Now for the big question: What’s your favorite video game? I personally love DJ Hero, Mortal Kombat, Mario Kart, NBA 2K11 and Madden 10. I really wish they’d bring back Mutant League Football, though…
