Abstract

The paper is devoted to the analysis of the problem of characteristics of players’ personality of different genders. Computer games are the very popular form of entertainment which is liked by millions of people around the world of all ages. The computer games industry is growing rapidly and becomes the important form of entertainment for millions of people around the world. In 2014 it was revealed that 1.5 billion people are the number of people who regularly play video games, which is about 25% of the world's population1 (Burke, 2014). This fact clearly shows that the gaming industry is one of the most popular and important at the moment, and influences the life and behavior of many people. The continuous development and improvement of video games led to the existence of many different types of games, commonly called "genres." The wide range of genres which are available today shows that players have their own ways of choosing and using a computer game. More and more women play computer games. We discussed gender features of gamers and made the conclusion that these features play important role in gaming behavior. We revealed the reasons and rationales for gaming behavior by persons of different genders.
