PC online gamers are not fat but can be more depressed, says study

The typical stereotype of an online PC gamer is someone who doesn't take care of himself physically as he or she spends hours at a time in front of a monitor. A new study of Everquest 2 players, however, puts this idea to bed but brings forth another more troubling issue for such gamers.

The study brought in 7,000 players of Everquest 2 (promising them a unique in-game item if they participated) and according to a story at Newscientist.com they asked the players questions about their physical and mental health while also checking out their online playing statistics. The survey's results state that gamers have a average body mass index lower than the national average and the average gamer does engage in exercise. However the survey also revealed that gamers tend to have "more cases of depression and substance abuse than their compatriots".
