"Fallout 4" causes traffic drop in Pornhub as the site reveals how most of their viewers are also RPG addicts.

In a recent statement from the site, Pornhub actually admitted that their traffic had fallen by as much as 10 percent on November 10, the day the Bethesda role-playing-game was released in the U.S.

Apparently, gamers comprise much of the website's daily viewers based on a Google Analytics "affinity" data.

"Thanks to the nifty (and entirely anonymized) "affinity" data that Google Analytics provides, we can see that many of our 60 million daily visitors are interested in gaming, based on their Google search and web browsing habits," Pornhub explained.

A significant chunk of this 60 million viewers seem to have forgotten their habit of visiting the porn site after "Fallout 4" was made available for gamers who use PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and their PCs.

"Compared to an average day, we saw a slight 5% increase in traffic among gamers in the early morning hours from 3-4 am," Pornhub explained, citing a chart of the site's traffic change among gamers provided in the blog post.

"At this point we assume everyone's download completed and the gaming commenced. Starting at 5am traffic began to drop, down as much as 10% from 7am till noon," the statement continued, adding that while traffic returned to normal in the afternoon, the chart revealed that it plummeted again after 6 PM.

This, says the site, may be because gamers who had to work from 9 AM to 5 PM had already arrived home and fired up their gaming machines.

After a couple of hours of continuous drop, the Porn Hub traffic then began increasing until it even exceeded the normal number of daily visitors by 15 percent.

Aside from that, the website shared the Google "affinity" data on what specific kinds of games their visitors usually play.

According to the chart, the largest decrease in Porn Hub traffic came from fans of sports games with -13.7 percent trailer by action gamers with -7.7 percent.

Those who love adventure and strategy games contributed to -7.2 percent while those who are fond of first-person shooter games had interestingly has the lowest percentage of -1.2.

This, says Game Spot, is a surefire sign that the game is "clearly off to a strong start" after 12 million copies had been shipped to retailers for its launch.

Game Spot further noted how Bethesda hinted about the "Fallout 4's" upcoming DLC expansion packs with game director Todd Howard telling Red Carpet Report: "It's going to be well deep into next year. It's like the game is done [does air quotes] but it's not done, because until everybody plays it, it's not really done."
