Poll: The GiantBomb age demogrpahic poll (803 votes)

Male 15-18 6%
Male 19-22 31%
Male 23-26 28%
Male 27+ 31%
Female 15-18 0%
Female 19-22 1%
Female 23-26 2%
Female 27+ 1%

I recently saw the thread by @KindGalaxy inquiring about peoples ages over here ( KingGalaxy's Thread ) and it actually got me quite interested in whats the dominant age demographic for GiantBomb. I spaced out the age groups pretty close as I'm sure most users here are somewhere between 18-25.

So if you wish go ahead and indulge in this little experiment, and enjoy (as much as anyone can enjoy a good ol' Poll!)

Thanks.

Are you a cop?

#4 Posted by Winternet (8258 posts) -

Uh, this poll is pretty much worthless. Where's the less than 15 option? We all know that's where it's at.

#5 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7802 posts) -

I'm 16, and I'm guessing the most popular age demographic will be 19 - 22 or maybe even 23 - 26.

You may as well be dead if you're over 27.

@beachthunder: Life begins at 26 and ends at 27. It's a small window.

23, ugh, that depresses me

#15 Posted by Azteck (7416 posts) -

Women are apparently the 1%

#16 Posted by JadeGL (1072 posts) -

30 female, I am assuming that will be a small category.

In the most popular demographic, yay.

#22 Posted by joshthebear (2704 posts) -

Mid twenties males represent.

#23 Posted by Octaslash (659 posts) -

I'm willing to bet that there's a sizable audience that is under 15. I know I was terrorizing GameFAQs when I was 12 years old.

If you're less than 15 you're not a REAL human being duh.

So no teen girls on here, probably for the best. Other than that I am not surprised by the numbers here.

#32 Posted by Humanity (11828 posts) -

In retrospect I should have added a Less than 14 option.

Fail.18 and 25 are always the start of groups. Why should 27+ be the last group? If you wanted to try and get somewhat of an accurate demographic, you shouldn't have done this. GiantBomb actually has a quite a few middle aged users.

You forget that Jeff and Ryan are up there in age and so why wouldn't we have users the same age or older that were watching them in the old original GameSpot days?

These were the age ranges I was interested in. Maybe it's a tad selfish but I made this thread mostly for my own purposes - while at the same time some others might also find it interesting.

4% of Giant Bomb is ladies.

God, Final Fantasy VII is just over 15 years old. How can that be legal?

#44 Edited by Count_Zero (444 posts) -

Well, if I wasn't feeling old before, I'm sure as hell feeling old now (28).

Shame on you.

Never in my life have I seen an age survey in which everyone over 27 is lumped into one category. My guess is that @Humanity must be about 16, and thinks those of us in our 30s might as well have been born in the 30s. :)

I am only 1 percent! I feel so lonely! D:
