Ukraine tops the list of countries that are keen on geek culture and the biggest interest of Ukrainian geeks is in video games.

Such results were concluded after surveying more than 3,000 users from 24 countries on the Skillotron platform, created for testing the technical knowledge of IT-specialists by DataArt.

Earlier this year, the company launched a new section on the platform dedicated to the geek culture. It includes five subsections devoted to video and table games, comic books, movies, TV shows, cartoons, and geek memes. Today, the multi-level quiz consists of about 190 questions, and the number continues to grow thanks to our users who submit them.

During almost three months, players from all around the world were able to test their knowledge of the geek culture by answering the online quiz questions. During this time, over 3,000 people from 50 countries participated in the survey and passed more than 5,500 tests.

The top countries indicated by the users as their locations are Ukraine, Russia, Poland, USA, Argentina, Bulgaria, Kazakhstan, Great Britain, Lithuania, and Belarus (in descending order of a number of players participated in the quiz).

As a result, Ukraine ranks first in the number of active geeks. Ukraine is also first in terms of the number of quizzes passed and the average received the score. Ukrainian geeks spend about 15 minutes on one game session. Among the most popular sections in Ukraine are "video games, movies/TV shows/cartoons, and comics".

The most challenging questions for geeks from around the world happened to be related to romantic relationships. As it turned out, fans of pop culture showed the worst results when it came to the dialogues from "Friends" TV series, kissing scenes in animated series such as "Rick and Morty", Sponge Bob Square Pants, Daredevil, as well as romantic songs from computer games.
