Leading video game genres in France 2018  According to a survey conducted in September 2018, the most popular video games genres among French web users were casual games and mobile games, accounting for 42 percent of the preferences. Second came role play gaming and platform gaming, mentioned respectively by 30 and 29 percent of the respondents.  
A quick profile of French gamers

The penetration of video games in France appears to be strongly dependent on the age group. Among French people aged from 13 to 24, more than 4 in 10 respondents had at least one contact with gaming on an average day, while only 16 percent of people aged 65 years and older were playing video games. Furthermore, in 2018, almost 20 percent of women played video games daily, a slight decrease compared to 2016. Finally, the 2019 Statista Global Consumer Survey asked French people how many hours they played video games in a week: results show that more than a quarter of the respondents declared spending one to five hours gaming per week.
