Lawrence Chan, Managing Director, MyRepublic Singapore said, “The pandemic has supercharged our gaming habits, and we’ve got the numbers to prove it. Our recent inaugural study of gamers in Singapore shows that people are spending more money and time gaming than ever. There’s no better time to launch a new season of Achievement Unlocked to take their gaming to the next level and offer real-life rewards to complement their in-game accomplishments. This is only the beginning; we have more initiatives to engage gamers in the coming months, so stay tuned!”

In December 2021, MyRepublic GAMER conducted its first-ever study of gamers in Singapore based on a survey of its broadband subscribers, which uncovered a treasure trove of data about the habits and preferences of gamers in Singapore.
For one, respondents living in the North are Singapore’s biggest players, with 48% gaming more than 15 hours a week, compared to 41% across all regions.
Conversely, those living in the Central region were the lightest gamers, with the majority (68%) saying they game for less than 15 hours a week.
Across all regions, PC takes the top spot as the preferred gaming platform (60%), followed by Sony PlayStation (21%) and mobile phones (16%).
Work From Home? More like Game From Home!
The survey also found that close to half of respondents (48%) working from home are sneaking in some game time during the workday. In fact, respondents living in the North-East region (52%) were the most likely to game during office hours.
Unsurprisingly, an overwhelming majority (91%) saw gaming as a way to destress, making it the top reason why they game. While some regard gaming as a way to rest, others also see gaming as a form of recharge, with 62% of respondents saying it keeps their minds active and engaged.
“It’s clear from our survey that gaming is no longer a niche hobby reserved for a select few ‘geeks’ or ‘nerds’, but a mainstream activity that’s enjoyed by both young and old,” Lawrence added. “More than 350 gamers have participated in Achievement Unlocked since its inception, and we hope Season 3 will give our community more reasons to celebrate their love and passion for gaming.”
