Icelanders Average an Hour a Day on Video Games

Icelandic gamers spend an average of almost one hour a day on computer or online gaming, Vísir reports. A new Gallup poll found that 66%, or 2 out of 3 Icelanders are gamers, with 50% playing on phones, 25% playing on tablets, and 27% on gaming consoles.

41% of Icelanders were found to play video or online games at least once a week. Gamers spend an average of 54 minutes playing each day. On average, women play five hours a week, as compared to the seven hours that men average a week.

The survey found that 94% of children aged 6-12 play video games and 86% of teens aged 13-17. A surprising number of young children, or 65% of 3-5-year-olds and 14% of children aged 0-2, were also found to regularly play video games of some kind.

More than 700 respondents aged 18 or older took the survey, which was conducted online, during the first week of February.
