—SPREAD THE JOY: Further proof that video games are becoming mainstream entertainment: A survey by the Pew Internet & American Life Project found that more than half of American adults play video games and one in five play just about every day.
As people who grew up with games get older, those numbers are going to rise. In the survey, 81 percent of respondents between ages 18 and 29 said they play games, compared with 23 percent of people age 65 and older.
"As various people become more accustomed to spending their entertainment time playing games, we will continue to see this spread throughout society," said Pew researcher Amanda Lenhart.
