#MakeoverMonday: Mobile is taking over the global gaming market

No comments
After a week on holiday and skipping writing a Makeover Monday blog posts for the first time in 4+ years, I'm back with a topic that I can attest to give my boys' affinity for gaming.

This week's chart is from Statista:


What works well?

  • The title clearly explains the story in the chart.
  • The colors are easy to distinguish.
  • The bar chart helps us see the increasing revenue.
  • Placing mobile at the bottom of the stacked bars makes it easy to see the increase in the mobile share.

What could be improved?

  • All of the labels make the chart look quite busy.
  • Is the image of the platforms necessary?

What I did

  • I wanted to look at the relationship of share and revenue over time, which led me to a connected scatterplot.
  • I thought it was important to look at each platform independently, so I placed them inside "cards".
  • I included BANs based on the estimated revenue for 2021.

Let me know what you think.
