Infographic on gaming by Suckstobeyourgirl Infographic on gaming by Suckstobeyourgirl
I had a load of questions playing around my head about statistics of gaming and i found it quite hard to find straight forward concise answers to these questions. So i decided to create an info-graphic which was simple and to the point yet graphically beautiful, so i created this along side 3 others, basically blown up statistics. They were designed to influence peoples judgement on gamers, as the majority of non gamers have a narrow minded view, such as, saying gaming is a waste of time, and makes people lazy, etc

Hope you enjoy it, Please leave comments.

p.s Sources are at the bottom of the page, secondly i apologize for the watermark but i don't want this stolen and spread round the net without sourcing me. If you want it without then purchase a print. Thanks for looking

p.p.s

What the actual fuck, 9GAG stole my infographic?
I uploaded this to tumblr last year, you can double check the URL, i uploaded it before i submitted this for my Final major project, i was asked to moved around some of the images to make it flow better. So i decided to upload it again to tumblr and a friend recommended i upload to deviant art and try get some money out of some prints.

Original post on Designers of tumblr, submitted by me.

It's pissed me off you think i stole this. And i can't believe someones stolen it and claimed it as their own, i'll provide the bloody PDF and drawings of planning to prove it. Fuck sakes :/

The visuals are simple and pretty, but the flow of reading is a bit confusing ; I think it'd look better if the facts were standing out more from each other, and read from top to bottom instead of left/right/up/down... if you see what I mean (sorry if it's confusing)
The color scheme is really nice too !

These are some good illustrations and statistics, but I don't think they really make an argument about gaming as a positive element. (Sorry people are stealing it, though. 9Gag is just full of plagiarism.)

Eh this all seems legit but ummm...artist? Where did you get the info regarding genders while gaming? I know there are female gamers, of course, but that they make up nigh half of the population? Pffft. It just really confounds me. I mean as a high school student, nearly every single dude in my school of 1600 people plays video games at least somewhat faithfully, about 90 or so percent or so of males, and a good portion of that plays them constantly, like at least several hours daily, dozens every week. Where as only about 5% of chicks at my school even care about video games, and the ones that do only play mario cart or something every now and then.
Question: What definition of gamer did you use?
Do you classify gamer as anyone who plays video games in general, thusly a person who play angry birds a lot on an i phone would classify or as some one who plays proper video games on consoles or PCs for extended periods of time?

And if your definition of a gamer is someone who has a passion for video games, wouldn't that allow someone who doesn't even play video games, but tries to exploit the culture for fad appeal (like a hipster for example) to be classified as a gamer? I bring this up because personally, it's common place to see chicks who use the gaming culture as a way to seem nerdy or geeky (another growing fad) where as I've rarely or never seen dudes do this.
