Amount of time gamers spent playing video games Singapore 2020

According to a survey on gaming in Singapore in 2020, 19.8 percent of respondents stated that they spent about two to four hours a week playing video games. This figure was expected to increase this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Frequency of gaming

Gaming is a popular past time in Singapore, and many Singaporeans engage in playing online or video games daily. For the majority of Singaporeans, an average gaming session would last between less than an hour to three hours. However, this changed significantly with age – the majority of older gamers average only up to two hours per session. Singapore ranks among the top countries in Asia for time spent playing video games, and this has had consequences on everyday life.

Gaming in COVID-19

Too much time spent playing video games was seen by Singaporeans as being detrimental to mental health ; however, the effects could be just the opposite during the COVID-19 pandemic. Playing online games has become a popular and even healthy form of spending time during lockdowns and quarantines. Furthermore, socially interactive online games such as multiplayer games provide people with an outlet to communicate with others during a time when social interaction has been limited.
