Who Games More? Guys Or Girls?

Hi Everyone.

Did a search and got no hits, so here it goes. Do you think that guys game more than girls? By game I mean video games and board games. If so, why do you think so? I've been gaming for a little north of 25 years now and in my experience, I've noticed that there tended to be more guys that game than girls. I could be wrong though. I haven't met every girl in the city that games. What puzzles me is just how can anyone say with any degree of certainty that guys play more and vice versa? Below is a link to the good people at Wiki Answers. They all seem very sure of themselves. I'd be very interested to know your feelings on this.

One thing to take into consideration,

With the widespread popularity of Apps within phones and facebook Gaming in general has been widespread far more in recent years.

I'd say 10 years ago it was men for sure.

Nowadays, I'd say its about even

Casual stuff like smartphones and tablets has definitely broadened the horizons, but as far as home console/PC gaming is concerned I think it's still very male dominated.

While the number of female players has increased astronomically from the past 30 years, console gaming is still indeed a predominantly male hobby. How can anyone say that...the statistics speak for themselves.
