History of computer game

The computer game industry has come far, from the days of Spacewar in the 1960s. The then graphics were not as refined as today, and most features were not comprehensive. The early 1970s saw a change in consumer-ready computer game hardware with the first game console, Magnavox Odyssey. However, lack of innovation led to a market contraction in the late 70s. 

The 1980s became the golden age of arcade games, with titles such as Pac-Man and Space invaders being most popular. The Japanese video game industry started booming in the mid-80s, with Nintendo releasing various titles. Sega joined the game, competing with Nintendo for the better part of the 90s. 

Advances in technology and innovation saw the entry of Microsoft (Xbox) and Sony (PlayStation) into the market. Currently, the industry has shifted to include mobile games. 

Different types of games

Many types of games are available in the market. Typically, these games are often categorized by their characteristics or underlying objective. If you ever want to know about different game types, here is a sneak peek. 

As the name suggests, action games are designed in a way that the player controlling the game is often at the center of action, comprising physical challenges to be overcome.
