When we cover children’s online gaming we focus on games played by the under-12s But with so many children over 12 years-of-age still playing browser-based games it’s about time we posted on this age group too.
The slides below are from a survey of 732 children and highlight that while some children’s games suffer a significant drop-off as kids reach their teens it’s not bad news for all; some games, like Runescape and Lord of the Rings Online attract more users as kids get older.
We also look at the gender divide in the games’ users – from the boy-dominated Runescape to the girl-focused Stardoll there seems to be a game for everyone.
