Evolution of Video Games
Do you ever wish to just be able to free your mind and escape reality?
Ever since video games have been around it has been a pastime for those to escape the world and free their mind for that short period of time
Nowadays tons of people spend a lot of hours each day just playing video games and has made it a hobby for them to enjoy
Technology has really progressed throughout the years especially with their development in video games
Today I am going to explain the evolution of video games from the past, the video games that we see today of where it’s at and the future for video games and what the future has to come for it
I will be explaining about how video games have come a very long way ever since they started to get popular
Arcade games was the start of video games console development
A game called Pong which was an arcade table tennis game was created by Atari and was starting to gain a lot of attention by others as Pong was put in an arcade to see how people would react to the game and was soon to find out that the machine was having technical issues with it because the coin machine was jammed due to a lot of people playing the game
Atari had released a video computer system called the Atari 2600 which had a joystick, was playable in color, able to switch the cartridge out to play different games
II. I will be talking about how the video games consoles that we see today is totally different than the console models that we have seen in the previous models
The consoles that you see today allows you to interact with other players from all over the world through an internet connection for example consoles like the xbox or playstation
Most consoles back then you would have to play them at the comfort of your own home until they created handheld consoles like the gameboy and nintendo DS which allowed people to play their games on the go and wherever they wanted
The consoles back the controllers were stuck to the console and can only go up to a certain feet while the consoles that you see today have wireless controllers
Nintendo wii, Playstation and Xbox
III. For my last main point I will be talking about the future of video games and what the future has to come for it
Gaming Virtual Reality
Headsets that are mounted onto your head and display a 3D type of gameplay
Can interact/talk to others that have it
B. Haptic feedback
Could create a much more immersive type of haptic feedback rather than just having the haptic feedback in your controller, having a body suit to give you the full sensory detail when playing a game
C. Have advanced simulation of your character or person in game
Gaming directly from your brain/body
If you move then your in game character moves as well
Perform a certain action in real life in order for your character in game to mimic those same moves
The technology and evolution of video games has really come a long way since the first console that Atari had released.
Video games have always been a pastime for those to escape the world and reality for a short amount of time and for those even considered as a hobby.
Throughout the years of development we have seen such a big difference of how video games were made back then than how it is now.
Seeing how videos games are and where it’s currently at in today’s society with things like virtual reality gaming really goes to show that I don’t have a doubt that many years from now in the future video games with continue to get better.
