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.

Alfred is the Atlasian equivalent of a malevolent deity.

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.
