So, is your question about gaming? Well, not really. Its actually about people who do game. So the question then becomes, why not include information about gamers?
This is a controversial topic which has come up a couple times on different questions. On this site we use a democratic processes to decide these sorts of gray areas. In this case people can vote to close, or vote to reopen. These 5 people felt that this question was far enough off topic that it wasn't relevant to the site. Now 5 other people can vote to reopen the question as they see fit.
An important note about voting: Because we don't want people just going out and finding 5 friends to endlessly wage open/close wars, we do restrict reopen/close votes to people who have distinguished themselves as being part of the community. We do this through the system of rep. In this case it takes 500 rep before you can vote to close/reopen a question.
