In Asia-Pacific, gaming has become a more integral part of people’s lives. 77 per cent of gamers believe that gaming is a great way to strengthen connections with family and friends, while nine in 10 gamers reveal gaming as a source of mental wellbeing, and more than half use gaming to improve and learn new skills.
