A Brief History Of Video Gaming

We often think of computer games as consisting of complex, lengthy and highly-detailed programs where we are required to use sophisticated and abstract calculations in order to win. However, video gaming is a different beast altogether. In fact, video gaming requires no such skills and can be enjoyed by anyone of any age. In fact, many children are now taking to gaming very seriously, and the phenomenon of ‘grown up’ gamers has become very popular over the past few years. Gaming is now more popular than ever, and its global reach and influence are truly global.


So, why are so many people playing video games? To answer this question, one needs to look beyond the traditional reasons why people play computer or console games. One reason, clearly, is for the pure entertainment value provided by the experience of playing. Playing a game gives the player the opportunity to have an experience that is almost like being in another world, a virtual reality in some cases. Video gaming allows players to escape into a world where they are free to roam and engage in non-stop action, adventure and interaction with countless other players all over the world.

Gaming is also important from a social perspective. The internet has opened up possibilities that were never possible before. Gaming allows people from all around the world to come together and enjoy their shared passion for electronic games. For instance, in recent times, many online communities have been formed for people who enjoy playing racing games. Gaming has given these groups a common platform for social interaction.

However, gaming goes far beyond simply having fun. It has also brought about major advancements in communication and information technology as well. For example, video games such as the World of Warcraft franchise have brought about major advancements in the way that people interact and communicate on a global scale. In fact, World of Warcraft has grown so popular that it is now the most sold computer game of all time. This popularity has helped pave the way for other similar massively multiplayer online role-playing games to be developed. Some of these games include CounterStrike: Reflex, DayZ, and Age of Conan.

Online gaming has also been crucial in introducing many innovations in modern technology. For example, new image-shooting technologies, such as the use of green screen technology have been introduced to help gamers focus on the game better. Gamers can now virtually travel to different parts of the globe while playing games. This is possible thanks to the introduction of streaming video technology. The use of realtime online gaming has also made video broadcasting a widely accepted practice, allowing millions of gamers from around the world to get in on the action at any given moment.

All in all, the advent of state-of-the-art video games and the growing popularity of consoles has resulted in a brilliant explosion of technological advancements that have transformed gaming in terms of both its structure and content.
