Poll: The GiantBomb age demogrpahic poll (802 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.

FIGHT THE POWER

Oh, I see the category just gained a point! Haha, I am on the winning side! :D

Now get older fast and join our rise to power! Fighting alongside each other is way better than fighting against each other!

... although women seem to enjoy the latter more ;)

24 and still figuring shit out. I guess when I go over 27 I will have either attained enlightenment or go out in a blaze of glory and booze.

I'm loving the continued endearing trend of misspelled thread titles too.

4% of the site are age-appropriate females?

I was thinking of the exact same comment, I shit you not. I'm freaking out right now.

#62 Posted by Humanity (8808 posts) -

I'd like to claim the typo was intentional but I suppose I just wasn't paying attention as I was too excited of gathering data! Still a happy 'conincidence' !

#63 Posted by DuskVamp (681 posts) -

And now I just feel old and lonely.

#65 Posted by Claude (16254 posts) -

Claude's going to love being in the 27+ bracket.

Hell yeah. My group is usually pretty damn small.

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

My Appendix thought that. I turned thirty and three days later had to go to the hospital to have it removed. Stop aging people.

According to this poll in just a few months I'll leave the ranks of the healthy, vigorous, wily young men and instead I'll be a decrepit, senile old man by this websites standards.

Will anyone come to visit me at the retirement home after you ship me off because none of you will want to take care of me in my waning years? I very much doubt it.

I am in the 6%. Kinda expected a bit more 15-18 year old males.

#69 Posted by YoungFrey (1321 posts) -

Come back with real age ranges.

#70 Edited by FunkasaurasRex (847 posts) -

Wow, I figured there probably wouldn't be very many women and I know this is only a small snapshot of the forum community but holy crap there aren't very many women.

#71 Edited by ShockD (2393 posts) -

Cool! Statistics!

according to the last demographics poll thingy, I think the woman demo is at like 10% or something. I totally forget, but just remember there are people who don't engage in the forums (especially now that it's in it's own ghetto).

Old folks represent.

I was under 15 years old when I gained interest in this website.

I didn't know sub-humans were able to use the internet. Luckily you have evolved, friend.

At least males 27+ isn't further broken down into OLD and EVEN OLDER categories...then I think it would me me, the staff, and like three other dudes maybe.

There are quite a few users in your demographic that I know personally on the site. You're not as alone as you think!

#83 Posted by Aegon (5401 posts) -

Saw 19-22 and immediately cast my vote, but didn't realize it was the female section. I'm a dude and wasn't aware that your poll was gonna be SEXIST.

#84 Posted by C2C (855 posts) -

As expected, there are a bunch of dudes on this site.

Yeah, I figured that's the case. 10% really doesn't sound much better though; kind of a shame that the community/audience is so homogeneous. Hopefully no one makes one of these for racial demographics as well or things could potentially look way more depressing.

I never would have thought that my age demographic (27+) is so well represented on here. Go old people!

#96 Posted by Cathryn (545 posts) -

Late to the party and totally not surprised at the results.

Female, 32.

#97 Posted by bombHills (632 posts) -
