Debatably true, but who's to say they're not slacking in style? A quick spin around the Internet will turn up loads of fashionable finds for the home that would keep any gamer happy.
Whether your tastes run to 1980's kitsch (Pac-Man), 1990's nostalgia (Tetris), or modern gaming (Mario Kart), our roundup has a little something for every gamer's style:
