Mobile Game Research – Poll Results

22 Sep

The votes are in, the poll is closed and the results have been verified….

We are, of course, talking about our poll to find out how many games people have installed on their mobile devices!

As stated in our previous post, mobile phone storage amounts have increased somewhat in the past decade resulting in more room for the owner to store anything from movies to documents to photos to games. We now live in an age where the physical size and cost of storage hardware is constantly decreasing. This has meant that we are able to store more of what we love; mobile games!

So, what were the results? Let us find out…

Poll Results

Although only 26 votes were counted, there appears to be an interesting trend in the results shown. The majority of respondents have between 1 and 20 mobile games installed (53.85% of respondents). This is generally as expected as the average user is probably only going to keep installed the games/apps that they regularly enjoy playing.

At the other end of the spectrum, 19.23% of respondents have too many games to count. This is nearly 1/5th of all respondents. Does the availbility and ease of downloading games onto a mobile nurture this trend? It is worth noting that this result may include people who did not want to sit and count the exact number of games on their handset! Either way, this is still an interesting find.

Although these results can’t really be classed as a true representastion of the general public due to the low sample size, it does serve as an interesting brief insight into the area.  It would be interesting to see in a future study what handset people own and the types of games people have installed. Do casual gamers tend to rack up a larger game collection?

Were the results as you expected? Would the results look very different if the poll was run in 2 years time?
