Males play games for the thrill of conquest, science says so

0

I seriously wonder who it is that actually pays for these so-called studies. A highly useful piece of research has shown that men are particularly drawn to videogames because they are internally wired to love competition. The need to conquer is provided by a videogame, hence their popularity. And we needed a scientist to tell us this why?

According to the tests, women and men have the same basic understanding of the appeal of videogames, but women lack the same driving instinct to win -- it's just not that important to them. Obviously these researchers have not played Call of Duty with Lauren Wainwright.

"I think it's fair to say that males tend to be more intrinsically territorial. It doesn't take a genius to figure out who historically are the conquerors and tyrants of our species – they're the males," said Captain Obvious Professor Allan Reiss of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences Research at Stanford University, California.

"Most of the computer games that are really popular with males are territory and aggression-type games."

Men tend to be more competitive, is the basic message of this study. I am sure none of us had an inkling of that before it was confirmed by a bunch of lab rats and brain scans. Chalk up another victory to science!
