65% of American adults play video games.



About 65% of adults, or more than 164 million people, play video games in the U.S., according to a new report by the game industry trade group Entertainment Software Association.

Each year, the percentage of Americans playing games has been going up, as non-gamers die off and younger folks start playing games. The ESA collects data for its annual report, and this year's survey is entitled "2019 Essential Facts About the Computer and Video Game Industry.
The ESA said that three-quarters of all Americans have at least one video game player in their household, and they play across a variety of platforms

The report said 93% of American households own a smartphone, and of those, almost half of them use it to play video games. After announcing a record-breaking $43.4 billion in U.S. industry revenue for 2018, the ESA dug deeper into data that tells more about the individual Americans who enjoy video games and their lifestyles to better understand their interests.

The study shows that these individuals represent a cross-section of the American population and are diverse, active, and engaged in their communities and see video games as a positive force in society, the ESA said.
79% of those surveyed said video games provide them with mental stimulation as well as relaxation and stress relief (78%). Video game players are engaged civically, with 59% reporting they will vote in the next presidential election.

More than half (52%) are college educated. They are also just as likely to have hobbies and interests outside of video game playing, with 56% of video game players more likely to have a creative hobby such as drawing, singing, or writing. Video games bring people together in a fun, innovative way with 63% reporting that they play games with others online or in person.

Video game players are more likely to pursue healthier lifestyles averaging seven hours of sleep during a weeknight, while 32% meditate regularly, the study said.
The U.S. video game industry is one of the nation's fastest-growing economic sectors and provides more than 220,000 jobs in all 50 states. More than 520 colleges and universities in 46 states offer programs or degrees related to video games.

Hey lad,

its come to taste while reading your gaming news + anime news that all you do is copy and paste and I politely ask you to STOP. If I wanted to read this, id just click the link and read it on their page. In no matter should you copy and paste a news article and slap it here in a thread because its disappointing and we were all taught this in school, at one point.

Quote it and create your own opinion on the article.

Video games are better entertainment than TV and what not a lot of the time. Not to mention, a lot of adults are from the generation when gaming started to take off, and we just don't play on stopping.
