Top 2021 Mobile Games for each generation
AppAnnie has recently produced a report breaking down mobile gaming in 2021 based on monthly users’ age (among many other things).
Mobile gaming is a market that shows no sign of stopping (as indicated in AppAnnie’s report), and that is set to surpass $120 billion (USD) in players’ spending for 2021 ($100 billion USD in 2020, AppAnnie).
This spending prediction corresponds to 3.1 times the spending observed on consoles/PC.
Note that the data below is determined by monthly American users based on their group age.
Gen Z (16–24)
#2 Among Us
#3 Pokémon Go
#2 Toon Blast
#3 Coin Master
Gen X and Baby Boomer (45+)
#1 Candy Crush
#3 New Words With Friends
Are you playing the top games for your age?
We most certainly are not, but it remains interesting to see that older people have a higher tendency to play casual games that require less of a long investment (time-wise), compared to younger generations. Clearly, they are generally more likely to have responsibilities and engagements that will require them to be able to disconnect rapidly.
