Video Games: Computer Entertainment For the Whole Family

Many people may think that a video game is just a video game system that is used to play games. But there are many other things that make a video game system complete. Video games have come a long way from the early games played on a cartridge. Video games are now available in almost every home and are often referred to as computer or game consoles. A video game is also an interactive computer game that entails interaction with a user interface, typically including keyboard, mouse, joystick, or even hand held motion sensitive device.


Gaming devices differ greatly from personal computers in many ways. The amount of memory, hard drive space, and speed of CPU are important differences between the two. One of the biggest differences today is that gaming consoles and personal computers can be connected to one another wirelessly through a wireless router or through a proprietary cable. Gaming devices can be transported from one location to another easily as they are not dependent on a base station for connectivity. This makes gaming more fun and flexible.

Some gaming consoles and mobile gaming devices have hundreds of apps, while others have hundreds of games pre loaded. These apps provide customers with a large collection of free games, as well as social networking options and other activities such as news feeds and access to the Amazon marketplace. Mobile gaming has exploded into a multi-billion dollar industry, making it a popular past time for households all over the world.
