Finns prefer Solitaire

The Hypermedialab in Tampere, Finland has put out an amazingly thorough report on Finnish gaming habits.

  • Solitaire is the most popular digital game.
  • “During the last month 66 % of the respondents reported playing traditional games, 59 % money games, 31 % digital games and 4 % engrossment games [LARPs etc].”

And lots more.

I guess the cliché is that winter is so dark in the Nordic region that we have nothing to do but play games or code. I would really love to see comparable data from other countries.

  1. The popularity of solitaire makes sense considering its accessibility is unparalleled. Also, study said most active digital-gamers are relatively young, and I wonder if that’s because that age group grew up with digital games. That is, will we start to see an older age demo playing digital games?
