New York Game Conference Ask 8 Teens About Their Habits

– When asked what they liked to do the most, the eight teens, which was split 50/50 when it came to gender, and aged between 14-17, all answered that they like to hang with friends. They all enjoyed gaming, but it wasn’t a priority, so they weren’t hardcore gamers to say the least.

Of the remaining dudes, two of them had a Xbox 360 as their main console, while the last one mostly payed games on his laptop.
