In an article written by Forbes titled “Research Report Shows How Much Time We Spend Gaming “, it states that gamers are playing games 20% more than last year. While that doesn’t seem like a lot, lets look at the study of 4,000 consumers surveyed.

On average, gamers are playing for 7 hours and 7 minutes each week. Which to me does not sound like a big number because I play a lot more than that. However, this number is actually up nearly 20% from last year. That’s a huge increase and if we look at the 26-35-year-old age group the increase is even more dramatic. This group is playing for more than 8 hours a week, which is an increase of 25% from last year.
