The good people at Electronic Arts recently assigned the University of Oregon’s Warsaw Sports Marketing Center to survey NFL fans who play the Madden video game versus average NFL fans. (read: fat slobs vs. fatter slobs):
The survey revealed that those who played "Madden" were 60 percent more knowledgeable about the game than those who just classified themselves as non-gaming fans of the league.
The survey found that those who played Madden were 79 percent better in their general knowledge of the game, 54 percent better when being quizzed about game situations and 28 percent better on the rules of the game.
... And 100% of them are still waiting to see their first set of non-digital tits.
Good luck, gamers!
