    If that surprised you, then you'll be completely blown away when Romney wins in a historical landslide victory.

    "gamers" are always touted as liberal for some reason, and young people (majority of gamers) are always said to be more liberal than older people. So I was a bit surprised. Im a proud gamer and romney supporter, off to play moh beta, download complete:supergrin:

    No suprise to me. They may live in a fantasy world, but it's a fantasy world where they defend America when needed. It's natural they'd align with Romney instead of a Marxist.

    Video games introduce people to guns and to the concept that bad people actually exist, do bad things to society, and have to be dealt with, i.e., pro-2A, realistic tough stance on crime, personal responsibility, and patriotism/nationalism. May not instantly make them Republican, but it affects their long term outlook on life.

    Many of us gamers are in our late 30's on up. We've been gaming since day one. :) Half these kids today would **** bricks to know how many quarters we've forked over in our lifetime.

    Ditto. My grandfather was a hunting/gun nut, but he died before I was even born.
