Video Games

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,[1] but following popularization of the term "video game", it now implies any type of display device. 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. Video games have gone on to become an art form and industry.

The input device used to manipulate video games is called a game controller, and varies across platforms. For example, a controller might consist of only a button and a joystick, while another may feature a dozen buttons and one or more joysticks. Early personal computer games often needed a keyboard for gameplay, or more commonly, required the user to buy a separate joystick with at least one button.[2] Many modern computer games allow or require the player to use a keyboard and a mouse simultaneously. A few of the most common game controllers are gamepads, mice, keyboards, and joysticks.
Video games typically use additional means of providing interactivity and information to the player. Audio is almost universal, using sound reproduction devices, such as speakers and headphones. Other feedback may come via haptic peripherals, such as vibration or force feedback, with vibration sometimes used to simulate force feedback.

HAH! You had just read one of my great copy paste "WIKI" technique. Heck do you really believe that I'm a video game addict? Well? ..................................... Hell I am! Got down to this hobby since the Atari 2600 series was released until the late PS2, also don't forget the all famous Personal Computer games. Been there done that, is all that I could tell my costumers in my computer rentals business, hehehehehehe. But now adays, hell, I stop playing for keeps, just remembered the old day............ "FLASHBACK"......................................
It all started when my older cousin (Ate Lani) got an Atari 2600 series from Hawaii, we played Pacman w/ it's joystick (the real one) for 8 hours a day or until we drop. Heck, I was a kid then! Then the Family Computer (NES) came w/ it's all amazing keypad (YEAH you heard it right, KEYPAD), the mario brothers to any different kinds of games that you can remember, we even go outside to rent a unit per hour in a secluded houses near schools just to try our differences w/ the public. Then came the SNES & Megadrive, more addiction inside those rent houses. The came the Arcade inside malls & little sari sari stores, heck those things are the real bandit, "THE ONE EYED BANDIT", my 20 pcs 1 peso coin just disappears in mere minutes, WHAT THE!? Then came my College days, the new era for gaming, the PS1 & Sega Dreamcast was born. I joined some public tournaments like Tekken 3, School Rivals & Marvel VS Capcom, I tried my best but heck I only got best mentions in the Tekken 3 game, got 3rd place in Ever Gotesco Recto, 4rth place in Robinson Galleria &  6th Place in Megamall, hell those times are great! Then the PC, 1st XBox & PS2 came, along w/ my business w/ them & since then I become the game master in our area even host my very own tournaments. Those are the golden days of my gaming life, well for now, gaming is in a little kind of low these days, many kids don't like challenging games, they just love to play those moronic games of today.
