A new research study from the NPD group surveyed a numbered of kids and their parents and found that more than 64 million Americans between the age of 2 and 17 play video games. What’s more is that the numbers correlate to more than 91 percent of that age group being gamers. Do you know what that means?


It means you were right in thinking that all those little brats flooding into Call of Duty has become a larger portion of the gaming demographic than ever before.

The research data from the NPD group was called Kids and Gaming 2011, with the study taking place in early August of this year. More than 4,136 individuals between 2 and 17 participated in the survey, with mothers helping the young ones who were apparently too young to communicate effectively yet had ample enough skills and coordination to play video games.
