Study says guys are drawn to video games. Duh.

videogamerSometimes, I really have to wonder what the world of academia really does with its time. We have tons of studies that seem to point to the obvious. Here’s another one for you.

According to Stanford Professor Allan Reiss, in a paper published by the Journal of Psychiatric Research, he found out that guys are naturally drawn to video games. The study was conducted on males who played video games while their brain activity was monitored.

Excuse us for giving a collective "yawn."

Reiss says, "The males were just a lot more motivated to succeed. I think it’s fair to say that males tend to be more intrinsically territorial. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out who historically are the conquerors and tyrants of our species."

And we might add, it doesn’t take a genius, or a study for that matter, to figure out that guys naturally gravitate towards video games.

We can hardly wait to see the next study on how gamers like video games that are in color!
