Do you think gamers are out of touch couch potatoes? Think again.

If your library is not offering gaming options, check this out and think again about offering some type of gaming opportunities for teens and adults.

Videogamers Not Lonely Introverts; More Valuable Consumers than Non-Gamers

who play video games are more likely than non-gamers to influence their
friends’ attitudes about pop culture and new technology purchases and
are more social than commonly thought, according to a study from IGN Entertainment and Ipsos Media CT.

Findings from the “Are You Game?” research study break long-standing
stereotypes of gamers as solitary introverts and shows gamers are more
outgoing, more active and more valuable as consumers than those who do
not play video games, IGN said.
