Konami Digital Entertainment polled 500 Japanese men to find out.
Questions asked include things like if they thought of themselves as a herbivore male (almost 64 per cent said yes!) or whether they enjoyed in-game romance (42 per cent said affirmative).
The grass eater term was coined by a Japanese columnist to describe effeminate young Japanese men who are less interested in, say, dating the opposite sex.
Konami's poll—if you are one to believe Konami polls—seems to indicate a significant interest in video game characters: One in five Japanese males polled stated that they have felt like falling in love with an in-game character.
Ten in ten Japanese females said this was creepy. Kidding!
