More than 45% of male teenagers claimed to spend more than 60% of their browsing time in playing online games. The most popular games played by them include online flash games, multiplayer games and even social networking site games such as Farmville, Mafia wars and others. Another 25% of the teenagers said they were active in some sort of online games and maintained a character there.
The older participants of the survey, aged 35 to 55 years, spent less than 10% of their browsing time in playing online games. They are more likely to checkout sites related to social issues, casino games, business purposes and other forms of entertainment.
“A large number of teens seem to spend most of their time playing online games. The growth in the online gaming industry has remained strong and even the leading social networking sites such as Facebook, Myspace and Tagged have been used by game developers to take advantage of the large number of gamers,” said Jack Wills, PR Manager at Casinator, a game bonus and reviews site involved in the survey.

There has been a huge growth in the number of game sites coming up to meet the ever rising demand from users worldwide.
The gaming industry is expected to show strong growth in the coming years due to the ever increasing sophistication level of multiplayer games and social networking sites allowing developers greater reach to untapped audiences worldwide.
