The Gaming Industry – Infographic

Why hello there! Glad you could join us for another short article on this fine sunday afternoon. Today, I’ll be sharing another pretty cool infographic with you guys. This time, you’ll be able to take a look at the gaming industry, its demographic and some numbers on its size.

Trust me when I say there’s a lot of misconception about the age of gamers. The common argument is that all gamers are kids and teenagers. That is of course not entirely untrue, but it’s important to realise that there are a lot of adults who buy games as well. Turns out the average age of the gamer is 34. And that’s not at all surprising if you think back to the time when video games first appeared, which is when these people where kids or teenagers who got hooked on arcade games like Tron and Pac-Man. It’s great to see that gamers are getting older, because that means we’ll also get better feedback on games, which in turn helps developers make better games.

Anyway, enough rambling. Check out the infographic below and let me know what you think in the comment section below!
