Games were one entertainment that has naturally seen increased use during the pandemic. Although other people are no longer at home with previous restrictions lifted, video games are taking longer than ever.
According to the "Evolution of Entertainment 2021" report by market research firm NPD Group, game play time increased significantly from 2019 to 2020. Average hours of game play per week in the United States increased From 12.7 to 14.8.
This growth is understandable given that most people have been confined to their homes due to the pandemic. But the interesting thing is that the last number is not an anomaly. During 2021, in fact, it increased to 16.5 hours per week. Players between the ages of 45 and 64 have plenty of hours to spare.
With Piscatella slipping, the NPD revealed that the total number of Americans playing video games in 2021 fell from 79% in 2020 to 76%. However, that amount is still above 73 % in 2019. Two and a half months of quarantine at the height of the epidemic, adults spent 110 hours playing.
