How Video Gaming Has Evolved into Everyday Life

When video gaming first came on the scene, games were vastly different from how they are today mainly because there was little choice other than black and white (with shades of grey), computer tennis, or the still rather popular space invaders, although a more basic version.

However, the world of video gaming progressed and morphed and is now a multi-billion-dollar industry that is still changing. Leading top tech companies to create new methods in which the average gamer can experience their chosen games in more realistic ways.

From console

Although most people think video games started out on desktop computers, they actually evolved on game consoles which could be plugged into the back of TVs. Cassettes and cartridges, which were then followed by CDs, held game data, and the video game era was born. With well-known makes such as Sega, PlayStation, and Xbox all fighting for supremacy over each other, it is no wonder that the progression was fast and vibrant. 

Even now, the console can still hold its own as games can be updated and downloaded from the internet. However, it is important to remember that the old-school consoles may not be in production anymore but are now, along with certain games becoming very collectible.

To desktop computer 

Of course, the computer has managed to keep a grip throughout the console era, and now offers even more games and user experience than consoles ever did. With graphics becoming so realistic and games requiring large storage data such as that which is offered by the cloud it is no wonder that games have moved on from CD storage in the days gone by. 

In addition to having games played on PCs, including laptops, there is now the opportunity to connect with others that are also playing the same game. This makes these styles of games more challenging as you will not be playing against the computer but against a human being. Alongside this, there needs to be collaboration. So, teams, guilds, and alliances can unite against a common enemy.

To mobile gaming

However, both of the previously mentioned forms of gaming require a level of control. This means that you have to be either sat with a computer or a laptop or, for that matter, in front of a TV. For the modern person, this is not enough. There is a willingness to play games wherever they happen to be, and simply the desire to wait until they are at home is not there anymore. 

The addition of gaming on cell phones and not just the games stored in the phone’s hard drives but online games means that you can play games while you are on the move. While enduring the boring commute to work, relaxing on the way home, or in all of your breaks or the odd 5 minutes grabbed during the day. The opportunity is there to play, relax and enjoy yourself.

Final thoughts

It has indeed been an exciting and exhilarating experience to watch how far video games have gone, and the journey is far from over. Now gamers are starting to experience virtual reality within their gaming worlds to make the games more real and life-like, and they can only wait with barely concealed anticipation to see what will follow after.
