    Wut.

    I used to play probably twice as much, but since a couple of months now I have almost quit gaming. No idea why, I just don't feel the need to game anymore.

    On another note: 1/3 of hardcore gamers are female? That's A LOT more than I expected...

    Is it still considered playing if you put the game in standby mode and things still happen in the game, such as the thing where you can get pins in The World Ends With You by being near someone else who has their DS and copy of the game with them and have it in standby mode? Or how about the pokewalker? You could easily "play" Pokemon for 12-14 hours every day just by always keeping the pokewalker on you through the day regardless of whatever else you are doing.

    So... if 66% are male, and 34% are female, is the extra 1% of the 101% both? [​IMG]
