Creating good random map generators is a difficult task in video games, and something we’ve seen done with relative success in all of the Diablo games. Diablo 1 had four dungeon types with quite different maps for each area, though all were just big squares with different arrangements of the pieces within them. (The Hellfire […]

31% of Diablo Players are FemalePosted 26 Mar 2012 by
According to a Brand report from MCV females make up 31% of the Diablo community. The report was based on findings from 6,725 gamers, of whom 526 had played in the last six months. There isn’t much data publicly available from the report but it does show that some age groups are larger in the Diablo community than the average gamer – for example over twice as many females fall into the 30-34 age bracket amongst Diablo gamers than with games. With males the biggest difference comes in the 20-24 age bracket with 12% making up the average gamer but 18% the Diablo gamer.
Even though this report takes a sample of the gaming community and not specifically a Diablo community it will still be interesting to see what the gender make up of this community is. We have ran this vote before but many moons ago and if memory serves it came back around 6% of us were female. We shall run a poll for that sometime in the not-too-distant future to see if that has changed.
If you’d like the full report, it’s yours for £480.00 or $765.00 or EU574. A bar chart of the breakdown of ages across the genders is after the break.
