5 Shocking Gaming Facts

The world of gaming is forever evolving, with technology pushing changes both in what we can achieve, and the people who are a part of it.

While we have plenty of stereotypes that form our view of this exciting industry, the true makeup of the gaming community may in fact shock you.

“Gaming is Just for The Young”

We tend to forget that the older generations were the first gamers. These people haven’t just given up gaming because they “grew up” in fact, they still play now. We just have to look at retro gaming to prove that gaming has a history and was even used to buy a huge gold deposits.

Another factor that leads to gamers of all ages playing is how accessible a pastime it is now. Whether it be Candy Crush Saga, a strategy game, or adult-only games like online slots and sex games, mobile devices make them easy to access and are designed so we aren’t stuck at a computer or console. This is leading to a greater diversity of players.

“Gaming is for Boys”

This is one fact that always seems to be popular, but isn’t true. In fact, 52% of gamers are female, and this isn’t just down to the rise in mobile gaming. You just have to look at game streaming sites or explore more to see female players of games like Counter-Strike Go or Call of Duty or even League of Legends.

There are enough girls who play video games that some guys have even got girlfriends while playing games online. If you’re talking to a girl in-game or on a dating app, SWAGGER Magazine has some great tips for keeping the conversation moving smoothly.

“Professional Gamers Start Young”

The rise of E-Sports has brought us professional gamers. These gamers tend to start young and retire young, based on the style of play that is required. The youngest professional so far was Victor De Leon III (‘Lil Poison). Said to have started playing at the age of 4, he became professional at 7. It’ll be interesting to see if the next big star will start even younger.

“Video Games Are Bad for Your Health”

While sitting on a couch or gaming chair for hours on end can’t be healthy, playing games can actually be good for you. Boosting brain power and increasing mental sharpness, strategy games have shown to be a good form of entertainment for the brain.

There are many other shocking facts about gaming, these are just a few we decided to include here. Hopefully, though some won’t be as shocking in the future as our perspective on gaming continues to change.

How Technology Revolutionised Payment Methods

With the Internet revolutionizing our lives and the way we do many things, we have had to adapt to a new way of life. This has included how we pay for things; as more conventional payment methods can’t be used. In a digital world, physical money is no use to us, no matter what it’s worth is.

Now that most of us use our debit or credit cards to make payments, this method has worked well for us for some time. Technology continues to evolve though and we are provided with newer and more secure ways to pay for our goods.

Contactless Payment

This form of payment is more about ease of use rather than added security. The ability to just swipe your card over a reader and pay for goods up to around £30 is very convenient and saves plenty of time. With around 300 transactions every minute being made using this method it is obvious that this has become a popular way to pay.

Apple Pay

Apple Pay is an extension of contactless payment and allows the owner of an iPhone to swipe their phone over an Apple Pay reader and make a payment. While this is dependent on the phone being an Apple device, other companies like Samsung are providing similar services through the Android operating system. With Apple being such a big company though, it is no surprise that many stores are rushing to allow this functionality to its customers.


Bitcoin is one of the newest currencies and is totally digital. With no connection to banks, and a lack of centralized organizational structure gives it a true free feel.

Its use is also anonymous so many people like the feeling of not being tracked. It is expected though that restriction will be placed on Bitcoins in the future to allow the user to be traced in some way.


PayPal is a way to pay that has been around for some time, and its connection to eBay has helped it build up a trusted reputation. If you were to try mobile bingo, you’d notice that most of the popular sites allow this payment method because of its ease of use, and at this time of all new payment methods, this is probably one of the most popular.

This is what it means in Vietnamese.

Be with the one that makes you happy, the one that makes you smile, the one that makes you laugh, and each day worthwhile, live life for the moment, try hard to make it last because life is so short, it goes by so fast, so when you find love, don’t let it slip away, hold it forever, and cherish it each day, as long as you are happy, that is what you should do, love that someone and let them know before your life is through.

I Love You

I told you i would cause you to stress,i told you i would cause you pain,i even told you the reason why i cry,out in the rain,i told you i love you,and you knew it true.

Help Me

Are you ok?..yeah.. I am fine..I say this, but on the inside, i’m screaming no I’m not. I have lost my way and I don’t know if I will make it cut alive,i don’t know why I feel like this..please help me…

Empty Arms

My heart longs for you, my soul dies for you, my eyes cry for you, my empty arms reach out for you.

When I Feel Alone

I love you because I know you’re always there, there to catch me when i fall, there to listen when I need you, there when I feel alone.


Silence burns inside, thoughts are constant and kept inside, so far from others, disturbing for you..knowing who you are is who you’re never going to be, fight back, take a stand or not..the justice has never been found.look at yourself.nobody else is there to cry.

To The Heavens

You tore my heart apart, you held it so tight, it bled from the outside. Because of you I’m doing this, because of you it’s true, because of you this is occurring.. because of you, I flew.
