If you survive more than 20 seconds on your first go of Speedway Online you are better than us. This game is hard, simple yes, but very very hard. You have to drive as far as you can without crashing. Simple right? Wrong!
If you’re anything like us then you’ll play games wherever and whenever you can. Personally I reckon about 25% of the people I see locked into their mobiles in the morning on the London Underground are playing games. Usually it’s football, driving, or puzzle games like cut the rope or angry birds. It’s pretty cool, I love to just kick back and relax when I travel so these games are a welcome relief from the zombies on the trains.
So, where do people play mobile games? According to MocoSpace 53% of us play in bed! Well I might seem a little boring but I like to fall asleep reading or playing games on my iPad (if my dog isn’t sitting on it – damn you dog!) ok well this is my dog, she loves to play puzzle games too such as “get the ball from the forest” or “give me food”:
Anyway I digress…
So yes, 53% of people play mobile games in bed, and 96% of people will play mobile games in their house at least once every day. That’s a lot of people (ok this is an American survey but you get the picture).
64% said they play games when they’re out with friends or school, basically anywhere where they technically shouldn’t be playing. I’m not sure if being at Grandmas counts though. But here are the biggies:
83% said they played while waiting for an appointment – how else can we alleviate the boredom?
72% when trying to avoid the zombie stares when commuting
Now I’m calling lies on this one – apparently bathrooms are not very popular gaming spots, 5% said sure I’ll game while taking a dump. It has to be a lie. Unless of course people spend most of their time in the bathroom texting, which is slightly more believable.
So here is our question to you, where do you game?
