82 percent of American kids play video games

Posted on Monday, December 07 2009 @ 00:20:08 CET by


A recent study by market research company NPD Group find that 82 percent of American kids aged 2-17 play video games. Interestingly, the report also found that as teens get older, they tend to spend less time on games.
At 10.6 hours per week, gamers ages 12-14 are spending the most time playing video games, with the time spent playing dropping off among older teens, ages 15-17. Teens 15-17 and females are the groups that are most likely to report spending less time gaming and playing online this year versus last year.

"The decline in teen usage of video games is likely due to diversifying, maturing interests, which translates into stiffer competition for their mind and wallet share. In addition to competition from other areas of the entertainment space, more school work, activities, and parent-imposed time limits on gaming are factors which the data suggests may be contributing to this dip in older teen engagement,” Anita Frazier, an industry analyst for NPD Group.
