London, UK, 19th March 2014  – Today, the UK's most-watched YouTube channel the  Yogscast and the world’s fastest growing digital retailer  Green Man Gaming are sharing their SECOND infographic, featuring more results from their super duper winter survey.

With 64,620 surveys completed, the results draw attention to the key motivations of a gaming ‘millennial audience’ (70% of responses were from the 13-21 year old age range) that are heavily engaged with YouTube as their main source of information about videogames.

Highlighting how video is becoming the dominant way people make play and purchase decisions about games, Green Man Gaming and the Yogscast proudly present:
