[QUOTE] When I say “gamer,” what image pops in your mind?

A middle-aged man? An attractive young woman? Or a basement-dwelling, burrito-chomping post-adolescent with 10 Internet handles but not one hair brush?

Unfortunately the latter stereotype seems to prevail on our mental landscape of all things video games. In an opinion piece on [URL="http://www.gamese****ch.com/"]www.gamese****ch.com[/URL], writer Douglas Wilson identified this stereotype as a symptom of the thickly insulated subculture that has become “The Church of the Gamers.”
