About Eoghann Irving

Overly opinionated owner and author of You can get updated on his posts directly on the blog here or through the usual social networking suspects. What? You expected me to say something interesting here? That's what the blog posts are for. Eoghann has often wondered if people read these little bio things we have to fill out everywhere on the internet and, assuming they do, why?


  • I wonder where they got their stats. I’d like to believe 44% of gamers are female now, but it seems hard to believe. Maybe their defi­n­i­tion of “gamer” is differ­ent than mine.

  • Agreed, +Eoghann Irving . I guess I don’t think of play­ing Wii as being a “gamer” but hey… they’re games. 🙂 And I do real­ize the number of female hard-core gamers is rising, I just didn’t realize/think that we were close to 5050.

  • I know guys (and gals) who will spend hours gaming. They get home from work and spend the next 4 – 5 hours gaming. They spend their entire week­end gaming. That level of gaming just isn’t for me at this stage of life. I like some­thing that I can play for 30 – 60 minutes at a time and then go do some­thing else. I’m not look­ing to master a game, I’m just look­ing to have fun.

  • Play­ing Zelda on a Wii is equally ”gaming’ as play­ing it on any other console.

    And it seems perfectly normal for a lot of people to sit them­selves in front of the tv for 4 – 5 hours in an evening.

  • +Cathryn Orchard Yes, many people do spend 4 – 5 hours in front of the tv every evening. I’m not one of them. I watch about 5 – 7 hours of tele­vi­sion a week, includ­ing what I watch on Netflix and Hulu. I have noth­ing against hard­core gamers. I’m just not one of them anymore.

  • I’m sure I spend more time watch­ing tv than gaming, but part of that is because the TV doesn’t require the unin­ter­rupted concen­tra­tion that more seri­ous games require.

  • Zelda is a fantasy game, of course it “counts” on any plat­form. 🙂 I was think­ing more of my Mommy friends who play Wii Fit or Wii Sports, but do not label them­selves “a gamer.”

  • I think there’s some snob­bery in the gaming commu­nity. If you spend 5 hours a day gaming, you’re a gamer. If you spend 5 hours a month gaming, you’re not a gamer.

  • My mum prob­a­bly plays around 3 hours of Bejew­elled sytle games in an evening and I am sure she wouldn’t consider herself a ‘gamer’. I am going to make her a ‘hard­core casual gamer’ t-shirt since I like the seem­ing contra­dic­tion.
