According to a study, PC gamers are smarter than PlayStation and Xbox gamers
A platform called Royal Panda conducted a study to compare the IQ levels of players. While the research revealed that the smartest players were PC owners, it was understood that PlayStation owners were smarter than Xbox owners.
The “Royal Panda“, known as the platform that plays online gambling games, has conducted research covering only gamers. In this study conducted with the participation of 1001 gamers, it was found that PlayStation owners had higher IQ levels than Xbox owners. According to the research, the average intelligence level score of PlayStation owners is 110.7, and the average intelligence level score of Xbox owners is 103.8. The average IQ of PC owners was higher than those of gamers who own a game console. PC gamers scored an average of 112.3 points in the intelligence tests they entered.
The intelligence test conducted at the Royal Panda included four different categories. These categories are; verbal intelligence, mathematical ability, logical reasoning, and visual reasoning. Tests have also revealed that players who have different game tools are more skilled in different areas. For example, PlayStation owners were better at logical and visual reasoning, while PC owners were much better at math with verbal intelligence.
Female players have higher IQ than male players
According to the research, the IQ level of female players is higher than male players. While the average IQ level of female players who achieved more successful results in all four categories of the Royal Panda was determined as 108.4 points, the average intelligence level of men was announced as 102.3 points.
Audience with the lowest IQ, mobile game players
According to Royal Panda’s research, the gamer with the lowest IQ level is mobile gamers. Mobile players, whose numbers have increased significantly in recent years, were able to get an average of 99.4 points in the intelligence tests they entered. As for gamers who own Nintendo Switch, mobile gamers narrowly passed. It has been announced that the average IQ level of Nintendo Switch owners is 101.3 points.
The smartest players play Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege
The research also reveals which game players with the highest IQ level prefer to play. Accordingly, the “smartest” players with an average IQ of 120.3 points prefer to play Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege. While the average IQ level of Among Us players is 118.9 points, we see that Minecraft players get 116.3 points, and The Sims and Fortnite players get 103.6 points. Players with the lowest IQ score play more Angry Birds. According to the research, the average intelligence level of Angry Birds players is 95.8 points.
Android users are also smarter than iPhone owners
Royal Panda has also reduced the comparison between players between iOS and Android platforms. In the research, the average IQ level of Android users was 110.3 points, and the average IQ level of iPhone users was 102.1 points.
