I read the article and I believe they also meant phone games, because they included older people in the category too.. Also, I don't know if they loosely referred to people who play games as gamers or actually hardcore gamers as gamers..
@JDavid25 You know that's a good point, because there is a difference between just casual gaming- like playing "Candy Crush" on your phone, versus hardcore gamers that play more competitive games. I think the overall point of the article was to say, "Yeah, females and older individuals do play games..." at least more than society assumes.
