Gaming Sector Scorecard - Thematic Intelligence


The top three companies on the thematic screen of GlobalData’s gaming sector scorecard were unaffected by the replacement of M&A with artificial intelligence (AI) in Q2 2023. Tencent tops the ranking, scoring 5 out of 5 in six of the 10 themes that matter most in this sector, including mobile gaming, social media, ecommerce, esports, game development, and China impact. It scores 4 out of 5 for the AI, metaverse, and cloud gaming themes.

Key Highlights

AI is already ubiquitous in the gaming sector, and the advent of generative AI should create unique and compelling opportunities for gaming companies in the coming years.

Game developers can use generative AI to generate new content endlessly. This keeps games fresh and reduces repetition. Furthermore, players frequently interact with non-playable characters (NPCs) within games. Generative AI can make NPCs more believable and intelligent by honing their conversation skills, giving them personalities that evolve as players progress. This will make gaming more engaging and intuitive.
