I’m not into video games, but so many of you are I thought you might be interested in knowing that today is National Video Games Day. A new survey asked people to name the best video game franchise of all time.  And there was a CLEAR winner.

2.  “Call of Duty”, 21%.

3.  “Donkey Kong”, 19%.

4.  “Grand Theft Auto”, 19%.

5.  “Pokémon”, 16%.

6.  “Zelda”, 13%.

7.  “Sonic the Hedgehog”, 13%.

8.  “Final Fantasy”, 9%.

9.  “Halo”, 9%.

10.  “Crash Bandicoot”, 7%.

31% of people in the survey said they play video games every day . . .

41% play phone games WHILE watching TV . . .

39% play in bed . . . and

34% kill time playing games on the toilet.

It’s not on the list, but if I had to pick one it would be Pac Man. What about you? What video game is your fav?
