EA have published a study of US gamers which found:
* 56% feel it's "important" for games to be inclusive
* Only 7% would be less likely to play games with inclusive features
* More respondents are concerned about toxicity in the games industry than microtransactions/DLC (61% vs 49%)
@dickmandrake I can already hear the high pitched shrilling.
@dickmandrake fuckin interesting that people are more worried about toxicity vs microtransactions but the latter is what people harp on more...
@dickmandrake I just wish we had better ways of dealing with the 7% being SO DAMN LOUD.
If most of your potential players never even look at its description on the store page because they see it's got a 1.37 star average, you aren't making sales no matter how positively your content would play with them once they actually engage it. :(
@dickmandrake this... is honestly kind of pleasantly surprising to me
