More game time than ever
According to our survey results, a third of Americans have increased their time playing video games since quarantining. But with more people online, you may need faster internet to keep up with the competition: 39% of online gamers have experienced increased buffering during the quarantine.
And it’s not just a quick round or two of Mario Kart either—30% of socially isolating gamers play video games for two to three hours a day. And nearly 23% of all our gaming survey respondents played four hours or more every day.
On top of that, 18% of respondents would skip sleeping to get more gaming in, and 14% would skip eating or working. If you think that’s a bit over the line, you’re not alone: 81% of respondents think video games are addictive.
