In 2009, Rovio released a small, mildly amusing title called Angry Birds. Since its debut, it has exploded and taken over nearly every device we own. I say nearly, as my microwave is still flying bird free.
Research firm aytm has assembled an impressive infographic showing the addictive path of Angry Birds and it includes some mind numbing stats.
Angry Birds has been downloaded over 300 million times and is on track to top 1 billion pretty soon. All of those gamers are putting in about 16 years of nonstop game play every hour of every single day.

I’ll be the first to admit that the game was pretty addicting at its release, but the never ending expansions just repeat the same stuff over and over, and I’m not quite sure how they’ve roped in such a diehard fan following. You won’t see me sporting an Angry Birds T-shirt any time soon.
