11 Billion Gameplays In 2011

Posted by GG Goblin On February - 1 - 2012

The annual State of Gaming review conducted by Spil Games, which operates three social gaming platforms –  GirlsGoGames.co.uk, AGame.com and Games.co.uk, has revealed some interesting facts.

 
“What we’ve noticed over the past year is that more people are playing more online games – and for longer,” said Peter Driessen, CEO of Spil Games. “The benefit of social gaming platforms like ours is that they encourage players to create, connect and share. 2011 marked the year online games came of age, and we expect the number of players to continue to grow, cementing their position as the most dominant way we’re playing.”

 
Highlights from the State of Gaming Review:

 
- By the end of 2011, four of the top five games for women were social or had a social element
- Teens prefer racing games, particularly those in which they can show off their achievements to their friends.  They submitted more than 33,610,844 high scores in 2011
- Social games are especially popular with girls, with Pet Party being played the most
- Overall, gamers around the world notched up 11 billion gameplays in 2011 – that’s 350 games every second
- The busiest day of the year was 17th December and people are most likely to play on a Saturday
- The city with the most online gamers was Cambridge
