Hello all, I wrote this in 2007 but the facts remain the same today.
When you and the fellas get going on some Gears of War, NBA Live, Madden. . . people just need to understand, WE NEED THIS. Ladies we love you but sometimes we need to sit back and be men... so understand we need our time.
In Tyler Perry's "Daddy's Little Girls” Gabriel Union's character says she's looking for "a black man with good credit, who speaks grammatical English and who doesn't play video games."
Ok, wow....What's the problem? That's like saying I'm looking for a black woman who doesn’t like shopping and/or fashion. Don’t get me wrong I know it can get bad... fellas if you want to play XBOX360, PS3 or Wii more than you want to be with your lady then you need to take a look at your life and get your priorities together. A form of affection should be higher priority than beating the Heat on your NBA Live Season. Please ladies AND men give your loved ones just a few hours to get some gamage in . . .
Yes, ladies game too.
The average age for a video game player is about 30, a number slowly increasing as people that were kids playing the first arcade, console and home computer games continue playing now on current systems. The gender distribution of gamers is reaching equilibrium, according to a 2003 study showing that 57% of gamers are male and 43% female. (ESA report on the sales, demographics and usage data of the industry)
Wow 43 percent, that's a lot of women. If you're out there reading this ladies... Will You Marry Me? Haha, I'm just kidding I'm married, but seriously its just a sign of the times... 20 years ago men got together and had poker night. Now . . . we game. It's not just another night of the week... it is the very fabric that keeps man sane... the comraderie and competition mends all wounds of the world and act as catalysts to propell the patrons of gamage toward a better mood... a better state of mind so we can deal with the weight of life, work and relationship.
To all my gamers out there, men and women alike, keep gaming. . . Maybe I'll see u out there on XBOX|Live
