Embrace the Revolution



Violet grew up playing her big brother's Nintendo. The last game she played was Super Mario Bros 3 in 1990. Now, she's all grown up and a member of the Revolution.

Why are 'traditional' gamers so down on the new gaming audience prepared to take the world by storm? Is it because the Revolution is something different and they fear change? Or is it because the typical male-dominated, testosterone-filled gaming community is about to be home to a whole host of new players?

If the games are focused on being fun, more and more people like Violet will be playing games. If gamers would just get away from their 'boys club' mentality and play some games that aren't focused on sports and/or killing, they may find that there are a whole lot of members of the opposite sex that may enjoy spending some quality gaming time with them.

Embrace the Revolution

UPDATE: There is now a larger version of Violet's picture available.

I think you'll find the U.K gaming demographics pretty interesting and good supporting evidence.
