Hello I was just curious as to what the answers were for these three questions. I dont want just one person to answer them i want a full variety of answers.

1. Who do you think are the target audience for Minecraft? E.g Gender, age, race, country etc.

2. What gender do you think plays Minecraft more Boys/Girls?

3. How many hours a day do you play Minecraft?



I dont expect this thread to go anywhere, but any input would be much obliged.

1. Everyone with a computer.
2. Men, because there are no girls on the Internet.
3. It varies wildly.

Is that a joke? Or are you retarded?

Well that was... Vague.

If you have a computer it doesnt mean you play Minecraft.
I know more girls than boys on the internet.
I asked for how many YOU play.

But if you have a computer you are in the target audience.  Your question was asking for the target audience and Mojang is trying to get Minecraft to appeal to everybody that has access to it.

I dont find being called retarded funny. Think of an insult that isnt a disability.

1) Anyone really...Mojang just wants to appeal to everyone, but if I had to pick an age group I'd say 10-25
2) Males obviously play more, however the number of female users are rising, pretty fast I might add. I would say 65%-35%, respectively.
3) About two hours average on weekends. About an hour on average on weekdays. Average is being emphasized because that is certainly not the case everyday. Those guestimations include my extreme highs and extreme lows.

1. Mostly 7-13 year olds, but there are some older out there, like 15-21.. but that's not common!
2. Males play more, as on average males play more games than females! But, the server I go on there's 6 girls, so it's not all guys!
3. As I have a fractured knee currently, it's kinda difficult to find things to do, when I've done the daily things, like cleaning (cause I live in an apartment) But If I wasn't injured.. maybe an hour.. max.

1. People with computers, working internet and at least 15 brain cells (which seems to be a fairly high requirement based on what happened back when I worked in tech support).
2. Guys (girls on the internet? The thought alone makes me laugh!).
3. Well, I normally play about two hours a day, but since last Friday when I got rather awfully sick, it's gone up to an entire 5 hours a day.

Yeh. I got the users mixed up. He is still a prick though. Goomba was only trying to have an opinion.
