Recently, Sykes, which is a customer relationship management company, surveyed 1500 gamers to find out what people would give up to keep gaming at the rate they do. According to the study, 62% of people surveyed said they would rather give up their social media profiles than quit gaming for a month. Moreover, 54.6% of those that were surveyed said they would choose not to talk to friends for a month rather than give up gaming for a month.
The social media apps that people were willing to give up varied. 68.53% of those surveyed said they would give up Tik Tok for a month. 61.65% of people polled said they would give up Netflix. Only 60% of those interviewed said they would give up their music streaming services.
The company also asked people if they would be willing to give up gaming for a year, and the results looked similar. If gamers had to choose, 67.53% would give up food-delivery applications for a year. 66.4% said they would abstain from using Amazon Prime delivery for a year. 65.67% of those surveyed said they would even give up alcohol for a year rather than give up gaming.
