🧵 THREAD 🧵

So, a couple of months ago the lovely @SteffanPowell went on @PeterCrouchPod to talk about #PressXToContinue and mentioned the stat that the average age of a UK gamer is about 40.

Last weekend, @BBCMoreOrLess tried to debunk it.

Here's how they introduced the topic:

"Surely, while there are plenty of middle-aged Xbox or PlayStation fans, the typical gamer is a child, a teenager, or a twenty-something."

This, of course, is the stereotype that prompts people like Steffan (and me!) to bring out that stat.
So, the stat (which actually puts the average age at 43) comes from @uk_ie, who got it from Nesta research by @hasanbakhshi and Karol Jan Borowiecki, which they based on data from the UK government's Taking Part survey of 10,000 adults aged 16+.
