Are most video gamers male?

Recommended Posts

Most video game players seem to be male. Why do boys enjoy video gaming more than girls? Personally, I think it's just another gender based sterotype and you should do whatever you enjoy most and don't be influenced by your friends and family. Your individual in your own way.

Yes videogames are for all genders, but definitively there are more male gamers than females. My girlfriend only likes Zelda games and Pokemon go but doesnt understand how to play shooter games. Its an interest topic as to why boys tend to like video games more than females.

I agree. Do you think it's because of social pressures and stereotypes? Why do you think there are more male gamers?

No I dont think it has nothing to do with society or stereotypes, up until this day in my life every girl that I have met has never been that interested in Videogames. I'm not saying that there arent any female gamers, but it may be that boys and girls like different things. For example I dont get Soap operas and every women in family likes them.

I believe women play games as much as men, however, some games are more liked by one gender than others. This is purely an interest based. I am a woman and I play a lot of games, I see a lot of women playing games.

I'm a female and I know plenty of girls who enjoy video games. I'm not really sure if more males enjoy it but males tend to be "louder" I feel so maybe they just get seen more. In either case, it's definitely something for both genders. Having grown up with a mother who is a gamer, I never felt it was anything exclusive to males.

There's no denying that for many years the games were made directly to the male audience. But nowadays, the scenario is quite different right now and women are fighting very well for their space in this market (and they're doing a pretty good job).
