Qualitative Jump of Games Video
Games video is a virtual reality that you enter using an electronic device. For example, a PC or a game console. The most popular platforms are PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
One of the very first on-screen toys was created in 1971 for arcade machines. Called Pong, it is a 2D tennis simulator. The gameplay is dirt simple. Move your paddle up and down to return the ball to your opponent.
But it was almost 50 years ago. What’s changed since then? Everything. The industry moved from archaic arcade machines to home consoles. New genres. New technologies. Better quality of visuals and sounds. Lots of content.
