Do you listen to Gorillaz? Are you looking forward to X-Men: The Last Stand
? Do you watch Family Guy
and The Simpsons
? And do you have a positive opinion of Google and Apple?
According to a recent survey conducted through IGN.com
by IGN's GamerMetrics
, the answer to the above is "yes" for a large number of gamers. Describing IGN as having "one of the largest concentrated audiences of young males on the Internet", the survey's results show a fascinating slice of modern interests.
Given that one of the arguments for in-game ads includes the fact that younger demographics don't watch much television, the number of gamers following Family Guy
(68%) and The Simpsons
(64%) may seem surprising. On the other hand, it would be interesting to see these results for different countries; the brand voting and TV choices show the American skew of the survey respondents.
