Diversity

There’s no debate at this point in time. Video games are the greatest entertainment medium in the last few years. After just a few decades of being the provider of fun and entertainment. The gaming industry has grown up and become a magnificent entity that now can be a way of life for many. Professional gamers, game journalists and streamers have become relevant and the industry continues moving forward.

Who plays video games? Which genre is most popular?

The video game market is mostly localized in two regions, Japan and United States of America. The latter was the subject of study of the Paw Research Center. Which started to determine the variety of players in the country through a survey.

Let’s start with gender, Paw Research Center showed that men are the people who play video games the most. With seven-in-ten men younger than 30 (72%) say they play video games often or sometimes, compared with 49% of women in the same age group.

You might also be interested to know that gaming time is also varied according to education. College graduates (36%) are significantly less likely to play than adults with some college experience (50%). While people who did not attend college (42%) saying they actually play video games. You’ll be surprised to know as well that adults who work part/full time (47%) are as likely as the people who are unemployed/Looking for work (43%).

In regards to the popular game genres, the Paw Research Center mentioned that Strategy and Puzzle games are dominant. About six-in-ten adults who say they play video games often or sometimes report that they typically play these types of games (62% each).

Other genres such as adventure, shooter, role-playing, team sport or racing and simulation games are all somewhat less commonly played, with about half of video game players or fewer saying they typically play these types of games.

These are just a few of the many stats the Paw Research Center has provided about gamers. It certainly seems like surprising results and I’m kind of bothered that genres like “Horror” weren’t included. We can only hope the gaming industry and community continue to grow like this!

I always wanted to be a journalist who listens. The Voice of the Unspoken and someone heavily involved in the gaming community. From playing as a leader of a competitive multi-branch team to organizing tournaments for the competitive scene to being involved in a lot of gaming communities. I want to keep moving forward as a journalist.

After the recent port to PS5, Microsoft is “really pleased” with the overall sales and performance of Sea of Thieves. As a result, more people are playing the Xbox and PC versions as well. Matt Booty, president of game content and studios at Microsoft Gaming, said this:. He also said that the success of the series means it can grow and that more money should be spent on a Variety podcast interview.

Microsoft is bringing four games that used to only be available on Xbox to other systems. Sea of Thieves was the last of these games to come out. The others are Pentiment, Grounded, and Hi-Fi Rush. Even though things have been going well lately, Booty says that more ports will be dealt with “case-by-case.”

News spread before the port came out that Sea of Thieves was being used as a “key test” to see if more Xbox-only games would be ported to PS5, PS4, and Xbox One. In May 2024, the game was the best-selling PS Store game in both Europe and the US. It also did well in the weekly sales charts.

Aside from the four games that have already been ported to Xbox, nothing else has been officially confirmed. However, news reports say that a lot of exclusive games may be about to come to other platforms. Some say that PS5 games like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Starfield, and a rumored remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved are all being thought about.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.
