A Pewinternet survey has found that 53 percent of all American adults play videogames.

The report – which sampled over 2,000 people – also concluded that 23 percent of those aged 65 and over play games. Which sounds a little odd.

The results:

The percentage of Americans in each demographic category who report playing games online or offline, using a computer, cell phone or any other kind of gaming device:

All adults – 53%

Men – 55%
Women – 50%

Aged 18-29 – 81%
Aged 30-49 – 60%
Aged 50-64 – 40%
Aged 65+ – 23%
