How do you define "video gamer"?  Do any of you have actual data from market research on the gaming demo?  From a quick Google search, I found this:

http://www.itfacts.biz/65-of-us-households-play-video-games-38-have-consoles-40-are-female/10918

No idea how accurate it is, but it seems like some of you are making some cartoonish stereotypes about who plays video games.

GOP are more pro-censorship, so definitely dems.

I'm an avid gamer and consider myself a right leaning Libertarian.  Own all the current gen consoles, PS3, 360 and Wii.

Considering most people who play video games are people screwing around with a downloadable Tetris on their smartphone (many of whom are quite old), I don't really think it's any different from the public at large.

I'm thinking (and probably so is the OP) that this means people who habitually play video games as a hobby, not just Angry Birds.

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

I'm a Republican gamer.

Most gamers I know are either Rawn Pawl Libertarians or socialists.

If we only count people that play over 5 hours a week:
Xbox: even D/R more libertarians than general population(about 2-3x)
PS3: Lean D
Wii: Republican
PC: Democratic, a lot of anti-capitalists.
Here's the leading ideology of the games based on forums I visit
Wc3: social democrats, half of posters from EU half from US
Sc2: US "liberals"
Dota: no coherent ideology, just drunken rants.
