Video Game Craze

Technology plays a more prominent part in society now, than it ever has before in human history. It has developed at a rapid rate, making phenomenal strides in the past 50 years.  It goes without saying that one of the greatest pleasures of technology is video games, but with the release of more than 70 different video game consoles, who’s to say which one is the best one?

When we asked Roamlers how many game consoles they have owned in their life, 67.06% of Roamlers who submitted the task said that they had owned 5 or more video game consoles! In fact,  only 4.55% said that they have owned 1 game consoles. With that said, it shouldn’t come as a surprise seeing as Roamlers are a tech savvy community.

The growing popularity of video games also means that people spend more time on average playing video games now, than they ever did before. It turns out, that just under half of the Roamlers who submitted the task spend 1-5 hours a week playing on their game console, and 17.05% of Roamlers who submitted the task spend less than 1 hour a week playing on their console. We would like to think that these Roamlers prefer to spend their time completing Roamler tasks 😉

Here are the top 3 most popular video game consoles that are currently owned by Roamler’s who submitted the task, and the most popular reason for why:

  1. Wii –everyone can play it, it gets people off the couch and it is a fun family activity
  2. Xbox360 –can play with other people online, and it has great graphics
  3. Playstation 3 –so many different games


When we asked Roamlers what their all-time favourite game console was, the top two were: Playstation 3 and Wii. Additionally, popular favourites included the Super Nintendo, the Nintendo 64, the Sega Mega Drive, the Xbox 360, the Game Cube, the Playstation 2, and the Nintendo NES.
