IS IT MORE IMPORTANT TO YOU TO MAKE FRIENDS OR BE BETTER THAN THEM?
Millennials grew up in a very different way than Gen Z, and we even had a very different approach to video games that influenced the way we appreciate them.
For many of us it is important to maintain indicators that reveal our ability, because in this way we show that we are better.
Interestingly, a recent study showed that millennials tend to be more competitive in video games than Gen Z, although this is not necessarily a good thing.
Being competitive is often seen as a virtue, unless it becomes an obsession and you seek to stand out regardless of the cost and who you may affect.
Recently the entertainment brand, Whistle, revealed a study in which it analyzed the way millennials and Gen Z view video games.
The results obtained show that the former tend to be more competitive and see it as important to be better than their friends, while the younger ones take gaming only as a social activity.
The funny thing is that they compete more professionally.
If you are a millennial, you are probably already thinking about something that demeans Generation Z by now; however, it is they who take videogames as part of their identity.
MILLENNIALS DON’T CREATE AS MUCH COMMUNITY AS GENERATION Z
The study also showed that younger people tend to create a larger community, especially through platforms like Twitch, which they also use to make friends.
In addition, they tend to consume a greater number of video game videos on this platform and on YouTube, so they are always connected with their favorite influencers.
We could say that playing video games is the new ‘going out for a walk’, and although Generation Z is not as competitive as millennials, they are the ones who can generate more income doing what they like the most… play.
