Are you a fan of video games? Would you believe that today we celebrate Video Games Day? If you are a gamer, then today gives you more reason to embrace your favorite video games that you love and enjoy. My favorite video games that I played in the arcade were Galaga and Centipede.
As defined by Wikipedia,
A video game is an electronic game that involves human interaction with a user interface to generate visual feedback on a video device. The word video in video game traditionally referred to a raster display device, but it now implies any type of display device that can produce two- or three-dimensional images. The electronic systems used to play video games are known as platforms; examples of these are personal computers and video game consoles. These platforms range from large mainframe computers to small handheld devices. Specialized video games such as arcade games, while previously common, have gradually declined in use.
The input device used for games, a game controller, varies across platforms. Common controllers include gamepads, mouses, keyboards, joysticks and the touchscreens of mobile devices. In addition to video and (in most cases) audio feedback, some games include haptic, vibration or force feedback peripherals.
Video games have become an art form and an industry. The video game industry is of increasing commercial importance. The summer American science fiction action comedy film highlight produced by Columbia Pictures, scheduled to open on July 24, 2015 is Pixels. That should be a fun treat for many gamers. By the way, what is your favorite video game, whether you played it in an arcade or on your mobile devices?
