PopCap survey: Many cheaters in social games are cheaters in real life
While a tiny 8 percent of social gamers surveyed admitted to using hacks, bots or cheats either regularly or on occasion, a surprising 49 percent of those cheaters admitted to cheating while in a committed relationship. More than half of social game cheaters admitted to cheating on tests, stealing from hotels and parking in handicap spots when not legally allowed. Worse even is that 43 percent of the Facebook game cheaters revealed that they has cheated on their taxes. You know, like, fraud?
In comparison, just 14 percent of those who do not cheat in your CityVilles or The Sims Socials admitted to cheating to get ahead in the real world. The survey also found that while women outnumber men in social games across the board (55 percent to 45 percent), more men cheat in said games than women, to the tune of 56 percent versus 46 percent.
