Surveys are an interesting way of seeing how people fall into certain categories, for video games, these surveys can provide fascinating insights into the how the players interact with the game, play the game, decide on what to do with the game, and so on. Recently, a student did a survey for Destiny and posted the results on Reddit, and now, another Reddit user has revealed their results for a similar survey done for Mass Effect. This was done by RaisKream, and below are some of the statistics.
First off, nearly 2,000 players did this survey, which is an impressive amount, of those 2000, 55% were between 18-25, and 79% of the participants were male.
When asked about when they got into theMass Effect series, the responses were all over the board, but in equal amounts. Some bought the original game and stuck with it, while others were brought in by the sequels, or even by the recent Mass Effect Andromeda.
37% of the participants have played the entire trilogy 3-5 times! While 24% and 22% said they played it either more than 5 times, or a solid 2 times. Either way, that’s a lot of play time. Players were also asked if they played one game more than the others, with Mass Effect 2 winning handily with 40% of the vote. Many agree that the second entry was the best in the franchise.
In regards to the player character Shepherd, 29% of players admitted that while they primarily play as Male Shepherd, they have played as Female Shepherd as well. And 25% admitted that the did the same in vice-versa. This is likely because they wanted to see not only how the other Shepherd acted, but see how the relationships were different with the changed genders.
The rest of the survey dives even deeper into things, and shows some surprising results, we definitely recommend checking it out.
