Gaming as social activity

10041.BuschCarsten.Paper.2520.pdf (3 MB)


Gaming – no matter, wether it's done analog or digital – is a social kind of acitivity. The GamesLab of HTW in Berlin has made an investigation about Gaming in Germany. Some of the results of an representetive survey are: Only 2 % of all Germans don't like to play analog or digital games; 95 % play at least occasionally board games, 43 % play at least occasionally video games or computer games; 74 % like "playing together with others, because it's communicative and interessing".
