Many assume that time spent gaming is a detriment to success, which is completely false. Our survey indicates that gaming is an outlet, not distraction, in a wealthy man’s life.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
One dating site is proving that not all gamers are created equal—in fact, your Call of Duty teammate may actually be a multi-millionaire "IRL." SeekingArrangement.com surveyed 13,728 wealthy men ($100,000 min. annual income) to disprove the assumed negative correlation between the hours spent gaming and the likelihood of success.
To the website’s surprise, over 54 percent of the surveyed men (7,413 men) admit that they still play video games at least once a week. Furthermore, 41 percent said they preferred the XBOX 360 compared to all other consoles.
Here are the results of this survey:

The site’s founder and MIT graduate, Brandon Wade, believes that these results bring a whole new meaning to the phrase, “work hard, play hard.”
“Many assume that time spent gaming is a detriment to success, which is completely false. Our survey indicates that gaming is an outlet, not distraction, in a wealthy man’s life,” says Brandon Wade, Founder and CEO of SeekingArrangement.com. “The difference between a successful man and an unsuccessful gamer is moderation. Whether it be regularly dating or regularly gaming, the key to enjoying any outlet is moderation."
