Gaming in Russia is a PC, online and a way to escape from problems

For example, a study found that 84% of gamers started playing again. Only here it is not very clear what this means. This hardly means that 84% of the respondents had not played for a long time, but this year they suddenly returned to their old hobby.

Speaking of more useful statistics, it should be noted that only 10%, as it turned out, play alone. The vast majority of gamers now prefer online in one form or another. In most cases, this means playing with friends or just other gamers in a particular project. But 38% also play with their children, and 13% have connected their grandparents to this, which is also very amusing.

It is also important to note that 57% indicated that playing helped them cope with loneliness, and for 37% it was a way to cope with anxiety. That is, games, at least in our country, for the most part have value, not as some kind of entertainment, but as a way to escape from problems.

It is also important that 59% of gamers in Russia prefer PCs, smartphones and tablets are chosen by 27% and only 14% prefer consoles.
