Infographic: Would You Date Someone Not Interested in Video Games?

In celebration of the PlayStation’s 15th anniversary, Sony has designed an infographic that answers the more ‘unique’ facets of gaming culture. Like how many gamers will only date fellow button-mashers.
Yes, it does sound a little ridiculous, but 7% of those surveyed said yes to having gamer-only partners, and 23% won’t date anyone who sets limits on their gaming.
In all, a total of 40% of PS3 gamers “cannot be in a relationship with a partner who gets in the way of their gaming,” Sony found. And we thought it was the other way round—that non-gamers would find the obsession a tad repulsive.
The other interesting find: hardcore gamers don’t like snacking while playing, preferring instead to lend the TV screen their utmost concentration.
So maybe the overweight, South Park-style gamer stereotype is a little misleading. Judging from the infographic, they all must be pretty skinny, especially since a good 22% of them have played for 10 hours straight.
Still, congrats to PlayStation for coming this far and continuing to lead the market with innovative products and features; but for those game addicts out there, take the infographic as a sign of what could possibly be harmful in the long-run. Unless a life-long bachelorhood is something to be desired.
