WHAT IS GAMING?
Fundamentally, gaming is the art or practice of playing video games. That being said, there are many different facets to gaming. Gaming is played through consoles, computers, mobile phones, or another type of electronic device. Gaming itself refers to regularly playing video games to the point where it’s a hobby. With gaming, you can either play by yourself or with other people in an online interface. This makes gaming fun because you get to play against other people. Those who engage in gaming are called gamers.
With inauspicious beginnings, gaming continues to grow as a popular pastime as the technology makes the video games themselves much more realistic and interactive. Smartphones have helped gaming grow, as well as the proliferation of other hand held devices, such as iPads. Gaming has grown so much that there are now two classes of gamers: those who engage in casual gaming (who don’t play all that regularly) and those who engage in hardcore gaming (those who play frequently and tend to look at gaming as more of a hobby). Hardcore gamers are those who love Magic Micro Computers, which offers the best custom gaming desktop and who build their own gaming computers.
To better understand gaming, let’s take a look at what drives gaming itself: video games.
WHAT ARE VIDEO GAMES?
Video games by definition are interactive games with user interfaces that gives feedback as the video game continues based on the actions of the players. Video games are played on platforms, with some video games being exclusive to only one platform or some having the ability to be played on multiple platforms. Gaming platforms include Nintendo, XBox, and arcade games.
There are various game controllers used for gaming platforms. These include gamepads, joysticks, mouses, keyboards, touchscreens on mobile devices, and even your body for motion gaming.
Video games, although now found in two-thirds of American households, began as research topics for doctoral dissertations in the 1950s. The first combat video game was invented in 1962 and at all places, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The first console (known as The Brown Box) was invented in 1967, which led to the first arcade video game in 1972 called Pong, which was released by Atari. Video games hit the big leagues in 1977 when Atari released the forerunner of the gaming system, which was a home console that featured joysticks and interchangeable game cartridges. This was the big leagues because the system could play games with many colors and a higher form of interaction for the user.
