It's a rare occasion that a professional report becomes a free download. A company called Newzoo created a gift for all of us. I recommend reading through the whole report, but here are a few highlights:

Decided not to start another thread for this and post here instead. A new study from Fandom is now available.

According to Fandom’s “Inside Gaming” report:
  • The younger generations of gamers are more interested in competitive gaming and making social connections, while older gamers gravitate more toward games with potential for intellectual stimulation.
  • Among gaming genres, adventure, sandbox, survival and fighting games are most popular with Fandom gamers of all age.
  • Tweens, however, are most likely to play battle royal (49%), racing (46%) and survival games (39%); while Millennials gravitate more toward MMO (41%), strategy (27%) and RPG (26%) genres, with games like Elden Ring or World of Warcraft.
  • The biggest drivers for Gen Z and Millennials are character and storyline, with rich and complex backgrounds; while younger gamers gravitate more toward competitive games, with an emphasis on coordinated teamwork.
The report found that 52% of Millennials surveyed rank playing video games as their top interest and 40% of Fandom’s Millennial audience spends over 22 hours per week gaming, compared to only 29% of tweens.


And a note about Gen Z vs Millenials etc:

"Anyone born between 1981 and 1996 is considered a Millennial, and anyone born from 1997 onward is part of a new generation."
