Video games as a gendered activity
Far more interesting than the article itself, in my opinion, is the reaction to this news by the readers. They immediately begin decrying the methodology of the survey, and insulting anyone who took the time to fill it out. Honestly, I am trying to formulate some questions here, but I am just so flummoxed by some of the vitriol I encountered when reading those comments. I'm hardly what I'd call a hardcore gamer, and I stick to consoles, so I feel a bit out of my element here.
-What's your response to this article?
-Do you feel that video games are an inherently masculine or feminine activity? If so, why? If not, do you feel that others might, and if so, could you come up with some reasons as to why?
-Essentially, what is all the fuss about?
-How common do you feel these views are? Do most gamers feel this way, or is this more of a "vocal minority" situation, or perhaps something else entirely...?
