    Default Mobile users play games 3-4 times per week on average, but are reluctant to identify

    Despite the already-high and growing popularity of mobile gaming, those who commonly play mobile games are reluctant to identify as gamers, both in the US and the UK.
    AppLovin, partnered with CensusWide, conducted surveys of over 4,000 US and UK respondants regarding their mobile habits, and discovered that while mobile users in both countries play multiple times a week often for long periods of time, most are hesitant to be called gamers. In the US survey, smartphone users reported playing mobile games four times per week on average, but two-thirds of those players did not identify as gamers.
    US men were more likely to identify as such, with 36% of men and 22% of women acknowledging the label. Nonetheless, 40% of women who said they had played a smartphone game before reported playing mobile games every day.
    In addition, in the US survey 55% of respondants said they played mobile games to pass the time, such as in a waiting room, and 44% said they played to relax. 33% of adults age 55 and older reported playing mobile games every day.
    The UK survey had fairly similar results. 75% of UK smartphone users reported having played a mobile game, and on average smartphone users in the country play mobile games three times per week.

    In general I play mobile games to pass the time, playing mobile games is not the same as playing at the console.

    That's funny, but there are even serious topics on forums: which games to play in a queue. The surveymonkey created the resent poll - the winners are Binding of Isaac and Darkest Dungeon.
