Everybody loves facts and figures, right? Well, I grabbed these nuggets of information about gaming from the Online Education website...
Turns out that the average age of today's gamer is 32 years old, and they spend a paltry 18 hours a week playing! Pah, lightweights!!!
Also worth a mention is the closely fought battle between the Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii for the guys' affections, whereas the ladies love nothing more than the Wiimote in their sweaty little palms.
Nintendo, meanwhile, manages to steal all the Top 5 spots for the best selling games. And not only that, but it's mascot - the minuscule Italian plumber Mario - is apparently the most successful franchise in gaming history - with a staggering 225m game sales.
