Gen Z identifies the 5 best characters in the game
Princess Peach, friend of Mario and Luigi, is only recognized 79% of the time.
HOUSTON (KIAH) – When it comes to entertainment, gaming is the number one choice for Gen Z.
Gen Z is more likely to identify video game characters than cultural icons, according to a poll by getcenturylink.com. They asked 1,800 Americans between the ages of 16 and 24 to match video game characters and famous people with the right portraits.
According to the results, Gen Z correctly identified video game characters at an average rate of 80%. When it comes to public figures, Gen Z identified public figures with 56% accuracy.
Respondents recognized Princess Peach, a friend of Mario and Luigi, only 79% of the time. The most recognized video game character is Pikachu. The least recognized character is Lara Coft, with only 68% being able to recognize her.
For public figures, Gen Z recognized a wide array of icons featuring two artists, an activist, a politician and a CEO. One historical figure who did not make the cut was Thomas Jefferson, with just 43% of respondents identifying him correctly out of five founding fathers.
