Happy National Video Games Day from theTUNDRA! If you’re a Gaming Enthusiast, that means it’s time to dust off that old Nintendo and start slaying dragons and saving princesses. According to a new study released by the Entertainment Software Association, about 65% of Americans (nearly 210 million people) play video games on at least one type of device — a statistic that has been steadily increasing since the 1980s. From the early days of Pong and Pac-Man, gaming has made significant advancements not just with graphics, but demographics as well — more than 46% of gamers are female according to the ESA’s recent study.
