Seeking perfection since… I forget when

Online Gamers


This week New Scientist will have an article entitled, “Online gamers are fitter than you think“.

It seems the stereotype that gamers are overweight is in fact quite wrong, at least according to a US survey. The typical avid online gamer is actually in better than the current US average, with an average BMI of 25.2 compared to the overall average of 28.

Should this be surprising? Nope, I have often become so focused on my game that I can completely ignore any hunger I might be feeling.
