Women Play Harder Than Men in Online Games

A new study finds that women play longer and harder than men in online games…well, at least they do in EverQuest II. The study sounds a bit fishy, claiming that women gamers exercise more, weigh less, play well with others and play longer but brag about it less. Wait, there must’ve been a girl on the research team.

In fact, women who played EverQuest II tended to exercise more and weigh less than the average American. Another shattered stereotype: The pimply teenage gamer. The average age of the 7,000 players in the USC survey was 31, and gamers in their 30s outnumbered those in their 20s.
