Child psychologist Tanya Byron might have surprised everyone by taking a very sober view towards gaming and giving the UK Government what many consider a fair and smart review of the gaming industry. But now she made headlines by hosting a show on BBC 2 called Am I Normal?, an investigation into game addiction. That’s fine – television needs material to sell. It’s just this little quote that caught my attention:

“Michelle Hart is not what you would imagine as a dedicated gamer. She’s an intelligent, 39-year old woman with a decent job and no history of psychological problems.”

So, what do people imagine a dedicated gamer is? A retarded madman without a job? How would we afford the games?
