A fifth of Android gamers name the bathroom as the best gaming spot (infographic)
We knew mobile gaming was addictive – we’ve seen people do it in the subway, we’ve seen people do it in parks, but there’s one private area no one peeks at – your home. And if we’d have to account for the 3,500 Android gamers surveyed over at Androidandme, that’s exactly where the action happens. Where exactly you might wonder? While nearly a third go with their home as the favorite gaming spot, a solid fifth of all users specifies that their favorite place for games is… the bathroom.

Interestingly, an impressive 23% of respondents play games for over 5 hours weekly in total. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that people tend to spend a lot on games – actually most users wouldn’t pay more than $3 to $5 for a game and only 12% are willing to sacrifice over $10 for an app. Combine this with only 1 purchased game a month, and the survey, carried around Android users, shows that they might have well live a happy life with the plentiful free titles available on the platform.

The majority of users also didn’t have more than 2 to 3 apps and didn’t found multiplayer to be the most needed feature for Android games. Do some of your own gaming habits coincide with what the summarized data shows?

hey maby google location could start adding bathrooms to gmaps!!!!

It would be easy... everytime a game is played gps reports location... it then appears as an icon of gmaps as a restroom.

It would so work, I know I play a lot of games on the crapper.

I'm not an Android user and there are many-a-times when I've stayed in the bathroom long after I'm finished with my business because I'm trying to beat a level.

Another reason why should never touch someone's smartphone...
