    In my opinion, part of the problem is that kids become fat cause they get way into video games, and don't do anything but eat and play video games. That gets them fat, but not really bad. Then I think some of them get tired of that, but they are too fat to really do much about it.
    That's not everyone though. I'm 6'2" 200, but its more muscle than fat. It just depends how much you do other than gaming.

    I think its just stereotypical to think they are all fat, im from the UK and maybe here it is different but a group of friends and i play games with eachother for hours every night typically about 6-8 every night and none of us are fat and none of us play any sports; the only thing we are into is weightlifting.

    This keeps us sweating hard and we have no need for any other sports, we are all of the 'no life' category and are actually more fit than alot of the people we come across.

    See, now i consider myself a 'hardcore' gamer doing at least 4-10 hours of playing either on PC or 360 each day.

    Yet, i can still keep my figure ;)

    I think it is a common mis interpretation that all gamers are over weight.

    Yes, I am a gamer, and yes, I am indeed chubby, but that does not mean all of them are! A large number of the people are in deed over weight, if thats all the do is game, over course they will be overweight!
