Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

  • Ford Crown Victoria Mk2 leads as the most popular car, showing up 635 times in video games
    ● In second place is another classic also built by Ford, the Mustang Mk1 (featuring 545 times)
    ● Nissan Skyline Mk1 makes the top 3, with blue being its most popular colour
    ● Chevrolet Camaro Mk5 comes at the bottom of the list with 273 appearances in games
    ● Yellow tones are the most popular car colours in video games, followed by blue and red

With worldwide Google searches for ‘best car racing games’ rising by 180% in the past month*, Uswitch.com/car-insurance was curious to find out which cars are most commonly featured in video games.

After analysing the number of times different makes and models appear in games on the extensive IGCD.net, they can now reveal the most popular cars amongst gamers and petrolheads alike.

Ford Crown Victoria Mk2 leads as the most popular car, featured 635 times in video games. Perhaps best known to audiences as the emblematic cop car, it’s in the form of the iconic NYC taxi cab that the Crown Vic most frequently shows up, making yellow the most common colour for the vehicle in video games. Midnight Club: Street Racing (2000) is the game that this particular Ford is most featured in.

Following close behind is another classic also built by Ford, the Mustang Mk1. It seems that both petrolheads and gamers are desperate to experience the thrill of driving this vintage high-performance vehicle as it makes an appearance 545 times in the list of games analysed. The 1965 model of this signature American motor is the most common, with red being its most likely paint job.

Nissan Skyline Mk1 races into third place. Driven by Paul Walker’s character in the Fast & Furious franchise, the car is not only popular in movies but also in games as it features 440 times.

Geraldine Herbert, motoring journalist and editor of wheelsforwomen.ie explain the difference between the Nissan Skyline Mk1 and its successor, Nissan GT-Rn, that comes in 9th place of the list with 273 appearances in video game: “The current Nissan GT-R may be the first not to carry the Skyline name but it is recognized as its direct successor and its roots go right back to 1969 when the first performance-bred Skyline was unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show”.

Which car colours are the most popular in video games?

When analysing the colours of the most popular cars in video games, Uswitch.com/car-insurance found out that 532 of the cars of the list received a paint job with varieties of yellow tones, making it the most popular for cars in video games.

In second place is blue and its variations of tones with 475 vehicles that were included in the study receiving this paintwork. Following behind is the variety of intense and warm tones of red present in 361 cars.

Ranked: The Highest Earning Female Gamers Per Country!
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

In the wake of E3, many gamers have been left clamouring for more updates regarding their favourite games. Not every game was given the spotlight however, as many high profile fanbases (such as Animal Crossing) were left without mention.

One of the biggest turning points at this conference, however, was how diversity in gaming has been promoted to the main stage. Spurred on by talk of diversity in gaming, ManySpins decided to investigate the 500 highest earning female gamers in the world and determine which country has produced the highest number of top earning female players!

The full results, including the most popular games, can be found on the ManySpins blog post: https://manyspins.com/blog/discover-the-most-high-earning-female-gamers/

The Results:

ManySpins can reveal that, in first place, is the United States. Almost 2/5s of the highest earning female gamers originate from the US, at 161 gamers! Top earning players include Mystik, Emy, and Hafu, and all top U.S. players have earned a combined sum of over £1.3million.

In second place is Russia, with 38 top earning female gamers. Top gamers from Russia include CS:GO champs vilga and Ant1ka. Russian players have earned over a quarter million, with total earnings calculated at £240,061.63.

Ranking third is China, with 37 top earning female gamers. Top gamers from China include Liooon and Eloise, both Hearthstone players, and the combined wealth of all Chinese players is £349,483.77.

In fourth is Canada, home to 35 of the top earning players! The highest earning female player of all time, StarCraft II pioneer Scarlett, hails from Canada and has won more than $300,000 from the game alone! Despite ranking fourth, gamers from Canada have earned the second highest of all with a combined wealth of £610,206.

  1. Brazil = 32 female gamers
  2. France = 30 female gamers
  3. Sweden = 19 female gamers
  4. Republic of Korea = 17 female gamers

In ninth place is Germany, with 13 of the highest earning female gamers originating from the European country. Despite ranking above the UK, German female gamers have not earned as much with a combined sum of only £29,775.93.

Finally, ManySpins can reveal that in 10th place is the United Kingdom, with 12 of the 500 highest earning females living in the UK. Players from the UK have earned a combined sum of £73,849.84.

When conducting this study, Kevin Roos, spokesperson for ManySpins, had this to say;

It’s vital now that we’re in 2021 to breakdown the stereotype that gaming is a ‘boys club’; as Laila Shabir stated in the Take-Two panel at this years E3, ‘nine out of 10 kids play video games, not nine out of 10 boys, nine out of 10 kids’. This makes it incredibly important to highlight the power of female gamers and showcase that their skills and prowess is recognised around the globe.

Gaming Ban: Signs and Tips to Combat Teen Gaming Addictions

Gaming Ban: Signs and Tips to Combat Teen Gaming Addictions
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

With the Chinese government banning under-18s from playing online games for more than an hour a day, RantCasino.com were eager to establish the primary signs that your teen is addicted to gaming.

Alongside this, in-house expert Laura O’Brien outlines top tips for weaning your teen off gaming.

Signs your teen is addicted to gaming:

  1. Increased agitation and aggression

One of the earliest signs of a gaming addiction in teenagers and young adults is increased agitation and aggression. As with most addictions, people are prone to intensified mood swings when experiencing withdrawals, making times such as the morning and coming in from school or work periods of heightened emotion. Such agitation can be amplified by the type of games your teen is playing; consistent exposure to violent games, can subconsciously promote such behaviour. Increased agitation can affect relationships both inside and outside the home environment.

  1. Lack of concentration

Struggling to concentrate or seeming consistently detached and preoccupied is another sign that your teen is addicted to gaming. As a result of the intense visual and auditory stimuli of video games, the real world and everyday interactions become dull and un-fulfilling in comparison. Such a detachment and lack of interest can quickly begin to affect performance in school and extra-curricular activities.

  1. Changes to schedule

Increased screen time is continuously linked to lack of sleep which in turns disrupts a teen’s routine. Such disruption to a teen’s schedule will amplify the other symptoms of mood swings and a lack of concentration. Alongside this with any addiction, you can become preoccupied with an activity to the point of neglecting essential daily tasks. Over time, a teenager will put less time into his or her appearance, cleanliness and overall health.

Tips to combat a gaming addiction:

  1. Positive reinforcement

Positive reinforcement is the key when trying to alter someone’s behaviour for the better. Offering consistent praise for doing exercise, working hard at school and on homework, as well as helping around the house will provide gratification and motivation to keep up productive and social activities. Negative reinforcement in this instance could cause resentment and increase urges to play video games.

  1. Alternative activities

Prompting your teen to be social and try new activities will keep them busy and over time, make them more inclined to crave social interaction as opposed to digital stimulus, promoting a healthier relationship with gaming. Even small steps within the home like having dinner together or going on a walk will offer positive distraction and interaction.

  1. No Gaming in bedroom

No gaming in the bedroom is vital when trying to combat a gaming addiction. Having 24-hour access will inevitably lead to late night gaming and disruption of schedule. Ensuring games are played in communal areas will reduce temptation and allow you to better monitor your teens gaming habits.
