A recent survey from The Insights People about the behavioral habits of teenagers in the UK found a new phenomenon. The survey shows that teenagers in the UK are very interested in video games. Even 84% of young women in the UK can be said to be gamers.
Of course this greatly outperforms the number of young men who like video games. Not only that the realm of esport in Britain is now also starting to be dominated by womenfolk. From the survey there are also statistics that 15% of these teenage girls watch and are interested in the world of esport. They not only play games in their spare time but also see the development of their country’s esport.
Of course this has denied the stereotypes that women used to hold that they were just hobbies for shopping. But now their hobbies have shifted towards video games. The survey increased by 10% from the previous year that only 75% of teenage girls in the UK liked video games.
But the genre of games that young women play is certainly different from men. While teenage boys prefer Fortnite and Call of Duty games, young women tend to play Nintendo games such as ARMS and Smash Bros, and other online games.
The survey was only conducted in the United Kingdom alone. Until now there has been no follow-up survey about the interest of young women throughout the world on video games. But from that all can be concluded that every year, girls who like video games are getting more and more.
