Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Ok i lied this is where it goes.

    Average gaming hours/week seems really low to me.

    That means on average people play about 2.5 hours per day. I thought it would be at least 3, closer to 4-5.

    Based on the server logs for my signature and avatar, I'd put it closer to 10% of the users here surf the forums from a Mac. And I use a Mac and visit threads I've posted in a disproportionate amount.

    If the average age were lower I would blame it on people living with their parents and counting it from that, but as it is I dunno. I suppose druhim's age probably puts the average by about 10 years though.

    Some of us have lives. After a full day at work, plus commute, I get about four hours of free time in the evening for myself. I'm married, so at least half that has to go towards the wife.

    It could mean in the gaming sense. Lots of people don't use their PCs to play games.

    I didn't tick "PC" under consoles because all my computers run Linux. I do game on them, but I suspect that the point of the survey was demographic info for advertisers, so it wouldn't really be appropriate to count me as a "PC gamer"given that the games I can actually run tend to either be the very limited selection of games with Linux native versions, or the selection of older games that run acceptably under WINE.

    EDIT: Also depending on how the survey software interprets answers it may have counted the figure I entered in Pounds as US Dollars for household income.
