That’s more than two thirds of the entire population of the country. Some of these might be the prototypical hardcore gamer playing online via a console or PC, while others take a few minutes per day to indulge in a free-to-play mobile game on their phones.   Is it any wonder, then, that aspects of gaming have seeped into so many other areas of life?
