Which Video Game Should I Play?

A gamer who unwraps the gift unravels a tremendous escape into vibrant virtual worlds powered by software shielded from the harsh realities of real life. Games provide an escape from life and include fun fantasies ranging from villainous venturing to sports heroics and everything in between. In a video game, a player can jump high, battle valiantly, create or rewrite history, and take advantage of a special ability.

The video game that jumpstarted intrigue in electronic games was 1972's Pong, produced by Atari. The video game industry experienced major ebbs and flows in the following decade. Pac Man and Donkey Kong (released in 1980 and 1981 respectively) catapulted into pop culture and helped create a competitive gaming scene. The following year, the infamous E.T. virtual disaster nearly destroyed the video game industry.
The industry recovered, and by the '90s, companies competed for a treasured place in gamers' hearts and homes in response to the demand for home console gaming. Sony released the original Playstation in 1994. The Playstation 2 debuted five years later, becoming the best-selling console in history — an honor it still comfortably enjoys today. Systems, system features, software, accessories, controllers, and games themselves endured exponential evolution. Today, Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony wrestle for the heavyweight championship waged in the "console wars." Sony defends a respectable lead, with the PS4 selling the most units of the current generation and the PS5 outselling the latest edition in the Xbox series. Personal Computers serve as a more expensive, more powerful alternative to console platforms.
