on February 18, 2004 by Martina Comments

Relevant stats today on eMarketer for any marketer interested in advergames. The question is “why people play online”? The main answer, according to a research by AOL and Digital Marketing Services, is “because online games are fun”. However there’s also a lot of people who play because are stressed or bored. The research also tries to tell us which are the activities online gamers are spending less time on as a result of online game playing. Eventually eMarketer quotes a survey by Harris Interactive investigating the percentage of Internet users playing online. Apparently is still rather low, but growing. Harris finds that while 49% of Net users say they never download or play games online, 18% are involved with online games �very often� or �often� � and that�s up from 13% in 2002.
