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.

Submitted to gamefreaks yesterday night also submitted by me and my tumblr

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 :/

Someone ought to present this to the NRA, who think that video games instead of guns are the problem.
(Not that I support gun bans, but blaming video games for violence is just ridiculous).

I had no idea about the girl gamer one, I would have guessed like 15%.

It surprises me because so many games are really negative to women. (I'm mostly thinking of those games where women are running around in little more than bras and panties and the men kill a bunch of stuff.)

Ah awesome.
Andddd the wow one was specific to a TED video i watched which was all about how much we achieve in gaming and how we can take that and bring it into real life goals and challenges.
Heres the link :) Might make more sense then :)

I am, an ex pc gamer. Currently an avid console gamer, the idea was to do with video games in general, what does it matter if the stats are mostly related to console gaming? More people console game than Pc game. Its a fact that pc gaming requires a lot more money, and a lot more knowhow to keep up the habbit, where as a console you have the element of 'ease of access' the console is basic, you buy it once, you only ever have to upgrade if it breaks, and plus, casual gaming (wii) etc.

Console gaming costs just as much as PC gaming, I've been down both roads, made the calculations. In the term of 1 or more, the cost of a console and all games (Only calculating the higher price of console games compared to PC games) you spend around 12 000 Swedish Kronor, which is roughly and simply 1200 British pounds. Thats the cost of a highend gaming PC along with games for it. And there is no online-fee for it. Also take in count that PCs are an open platform, and they perform other tasks than simply gaming.

Yeah, I've always hated 9GAG. All of their stuff has been copied off another site.

I saw it on GraphJam as well, which was what led me to here, seeing as they haven't removed the watermark.

for "blown up statistics", I guess you really achieved what you want, now a lot of people will think it's gold. I believe everyone should just be as wise as you and contribute to the internet in this manner. ...it's a pity I can't even read this afternoon's work properly without paying for it..

By blown up statistics i meant, i took some of these stats and blew them up to Bigger posters, not bigger over exaggerated stats, all the stats are 100% accurate in accordance to the sources where i found them.

I love this, everything is spot on and i realy like the W.O.W fact, it cracked me up. XD

I think that if more people saw this then it would eliminate most of the bad reputation surounding gams and gaming.
If a game is 'to violent' then it feals like, at least to me, that it is much more prone to get a bad reputation than a movie with an equal level of gore and blood.
It's sad that it tend to be that way. :(

I really like this because its true, games give so much from skills to everlasting memories of the wins the losses and the fun times in between, yes there are a few who do ruin it for otheres, such as the insulters and hackers, but the best hackeres are not interested in winning but beating the system, where normal gamers just want to push thebarrier, to see where and what they get where as hackers try push it further, online capabilities have allowed communication and friendships to form from all over the planet, under one banner, working together for a common goal, to get those kills to running around with a flag. Games allow developers to dive in the impossible, to allow storys to be re - lived the gamers way, so many perspectives are produced, not just one.

I lso like the art work very much, i think the colours compliment each other very well, The simple images are nice because they are eye catching but also informative. I want to move on to do gaming posters with a similar colour scheme, not the same colours but the way they have been combined to get a similar effect, soft, serious but uplifting, I can see alot of time and effort has gone into this and its sad that someone has used it for the own gain, it is a fickle world out their for artist which is wrong as art is needed for everyone to make themselves, piggy backing isnt right.

I was told once that employers associate video games with a lack of productivity and so I should not put "video games" under the "What I do for Fun" section of my resume. I'm glad this can prove them wrong!

I think it was "hobbies" or something? But it was for a class assignment and it was listed as something I should put on there. I think I ended taking off that section anyway. =/
