Yea using a pool of 2300 gamers should not be the overall consensus.

So true.

I think this more applies to people who have libraries of games that span different genres.

Not sure if people who exclusively play FPS's are.. that cultured

What are you talking about? I've learnt a myriad of things about Russian culture from counter strike. LIKE, "RUSH B CYKA!", but yeah playing DOOM wouldn't exactly engage you culturally unless you're into Alien culture I guess, heh.

Hmm well i think the combination of Japanese games and of course anime has made me interested in Japanese culture which probably extended out to all(well many) Asian culture(s).
But it's hard to say as many Asians live here and i went to school with many and work with many and i like cricket (big in some parts of Asia such as India and etc).
So i guess there are multiple reasons as to why i have interests in Asian cultures.

But yeah a lot of people i know cant tell the difference between the different Asian races, usually not gamers or anime fans or just dont play Japanese games.

I dropped out of school during year 11 so i wouldn't say that iam well educated in that regard.

I think gaming has has SOME negative impact. More so being anti social at times and probably not being physically active at times.

Guess i read on my pc and phone and in video games a lot but not books or manga, I used to draw, i go to the cinema sometimes but not that much.

There's no doubt that being a gamer my whole life has been educational though. And lead me to learn about computers and how to build them and I've tried to educate myself a lot. Learn about a number of things a lot.

at least they included the total number of users surveyed.. unlike this infamous poll and other similar polls 9 out of 10 ? 1 out of 5 ?... the end if coming... etc..




and definitely better than personal blog released by a cuck from newyorkpost-- at least these people provided # of people in their study unlike the examples mentioned
