Harassment faced while playing video games in the U.S. 2019, by game

Video gaming is no longer just a hobby of teenage boys - thanks to developments in gaming technology and the accessibility of many games, the activity has become very popular among both genders and young and old alike. Despite its popularity, the anonymous nature of online gaming leaves some gamers open to harassment and negative experiences. During a 2019 survey in the United States, 79 percent of respondents who played Dota 2 reported experiencing some form of in-game harassment.
