About 50% of US and UK gamers want more variety of characters in video games

Analyst firm Newzoo conducted a study in which they surveyed 4,000 gamers in the US and UK. It dealt with the variety of characters in video games.

54% of American gamers think variety is important in playable characters. 47% added that they had avoided playing the game in the past because they felt it was not made for them. The results were slightly lower in the UK, where 47% of respondents recognized the importance of different characters, and 41% avoided playing games that were not for them.

A third of all those surveyed said they prefer to play characters similar to themselves, and a significant proportion of them want publishers to take a certain position on social issues.

In terms of racial diversity, 13% of British gamers said they belonged to an ethnic minority, and a third of American respondents were black, Hispanic, or Asian.
