See Table 3 for differences in male players' and female players' liking of video game genres. Hypothesis 7 posited that young men will be more motivated by competition than young women will. Male players reported their gratification of competition (M = 3.87, SD = 1.47) higher than female players reported theirs (M = 2.73, SD = 1.41).
