“Gamers are too lazy to engage in real life!” says pizza delivery company

“Gamers are too lazy to engage in real life!” says pizza delivery company

Important science news from the Daily Mail here, with the revelation that gamers can sacrifice a huge amount of time and an awful lot of dignity at the alter of their console worship. No amount of real life can get in the way of their obsession, as this story paid for by a takeaway delivery service clearly convinces us:

The research was commissioned by Domino’s Pizza to celebrate the launch of Microsoft’s Xbox One on Friday and Sony’s PlayStation 4 the week after…

Domino’s spokesman Simon Wallis said: ‘With the number of new launches coming up this month, including PS4 and Xbox One, we’re expecting a spike in orders from across the country as gamers batten down the hatches and prepare to stay in and test out their new high-tech gadgets.’

That’s right – if you’ve exciting things to do like celebrate the launch of a new console, why bother doing menial things like cooking your own food – that’s what Domino’s are for! Pay no attention to the fact that Domino’s have added to a deeply-ingrained negative stereotype of gamers as disgusting slobs disengaged from real life, because, y’know, pizza!
