We already know both men and women game. I mean, unless you live under a rock or are brain dead, you know that. But how do male and female gamers react during playing mobile games?

Amazon has teamed up with Harris Interactive, a national market research firm, to peer into how behaviors associated with gaming has evolved with time, specifically within the realm of mobile gaming. The survey asked participants of both sexes if they would feel competitive when it comes to particular scenarios, whether reviews swayed them into purchasing mobile games, if they would be more inclined to complain about glitches or bugs, and whether or not and how they would share any potential top scores.

The results aren't exactly surprising. In fact, they're pretty much in line with what you would stereotypically assume, with men coming out as more competitive than women in mobile games and women leading the pack when it comes to free-to-play games.

Additionally, the survey found that women tend to be less social about their mobile gaming achievements, and male gamers are more prone to complain about issues such as bugs or glitches in their games. Of note, however, are the percentages. For the most part, they're pretty close when it comes to the responses women and men gave except in some instances, such as the F2P trend.

It's not a particularly exciting survey, but it does make you wonder what types of games (if any) were referred to in the survey and what genres, or what kinds of F2P titles were mentioned, as those variables can almost certainly alter the outcome.
