jill/txt offers commentary on a survey that shows that more women than men play video games in certain age brackets. I'm not what I would consider a gamer, but I do play once in a while. I used to play a lot: children and fulltime work keep one from gaming. I often play games with my kids or watch them play. I am always frustrated, as Jill obviously is, that the gaming marketers still assume women don't play.
A side note: I've been on a bit of a rampage about tech podcasts that exclude women and insult them in much the same way that gaming marketers do. Come on, people, women really do like technology and games. We're not just simpering little sex kittens.
