Nintendo Survey

Today, Nintendo published the results of a survey (conducted by Wakefield Research, and meant to promote Mario Party: Star Rush), that shows that parents simply don’t have enough time to play with their kids:

  • eight times a week: how often parents tell their kids they don’t have time to play with them;
  • 48% of parents said they spent more time commuting to work than playing with their kids;
  • 33% of kids prefer playing video games with their parents, as opposed to other activities;
  • 52% of parents avoid playing family games because they find it too stressful to find a game everyone wants to play;
  • 36% of parents are afraid of kids ending up bored;
  • 31% of parents are afraid of kids arguing about whose turn it is.
