A study from OnePoll asked 2,000 Americans about coping with stress during COVID, and found that almost three quarters of us turned to video games.

The study also found that 66% of people reconnected with old friends, or made new friends since the pandemic began.

3 in 10 Americans said they definitely have played video games through a conference call, which makes sense being most of them could've just been an email.
