Research & Analysis

Researching players of all experince

I interviewed gamers of varying experience to better understand their expectations and how they interface with games. I broke these down into two general categories, casual gamers and hardcore gamers. Some of my key takeaways ar

Casual Gamers

  • Mainly play games on mobile devices.
  • Prefer to play one handed with gesture controls.

Hardcore Gamers

  • Mainly play console and computer games.
  • Prefer a two handed gamepad layout with tactile buttons.
  • Feel that casual games are simplistic.
