We Ego-men are decisive creatures. We know what we want, and we want it damn well now. We like our beer cold, our movies actiontastic and car-chasey, and our sexy ladies photographed and presented to us in easily digestible form. Usually with a snarky headline or something attached. When our lady lust du jour gets out of a cab having forgotten to put any undercrackers on that morning, we want our paparazzi on that straight away.

That's just how we all do things around here. You know it, we know it, the universe knows it.

Meanwhile, if there's one video game that's a big freaking deal here in the Ego-world, it's Fallout 4. You can't have missed it, there's coverage out the wazzoo flying around the Internet right now. It's a powerful game, there's no denying that. But did you know it had the power to distract us all from our porn ogling?

Oh yes indeed. The vice president of Pornhub, Corey Price, has said that the site lost a lot of visitors on Fallout 4's release day. ‘On November 10,' Gamesbeat reports, ‘traffic started to drop at around 5 a.m. after most people finished downloading and installing the game. That decrease from normal patterns continued until around 3 p.m. Gamers then seemed to disappear again beginning at 6 p.m.'

The ‘hub being all about the hard data (/wangs, natch), they busted out a graph showing the trough in traffic:

"We can't say we're too surprised with what happened to our traffic during peak gaming hours," Pornhub vice president Corey Price told GamesBeat. "Based on the data, it looks like a huge surge of people decided to indulge in some wasteland wandering by taking the day off of work and school to play, while the rest of the world had to wade through what we assume were the longest hours of work ever in anticipation of some alone time with their consoles. As huge fans of the game, we can't say we blame anyone for swapping Pornhub time for some Pip-Boy surfing instead. We would have done the same."

Don't worry though, the story has a happy and/or fappy end. Pornhub and its oglers were later reunited, as visitor numbers went back up. Among other things. Hit the link for the full story.
