5 Areas that Technology Changed in the Gaming Industry

  1. Graphics. You will agree with me that during the arcade days, graphics are pix-elated. You can see them in every move of Pacman or even the first Super Mario games. Now, everything comes in 3D, it can even look so real in virtual games, thanks to hardware upgrades and fresh minds that made it possible.
  2. Portable. From the big machines in the arcade, you can now take your game anywhere as technology made gaming more and more compact to the point that it is small enough to pocket.
  3. Three dimensions. In the era of Kong, there are only two dimensions. Players are limited to what the platform has to offer and eventually they grew exhausted. These days most games are three dimensional and looked better with graphic enhancements. These combination has made gaming so much better with greater challenges.
  4. Online gaming. The internet has brought together good players, gamers from all over the world, testing their skills, and getting the right recognition they deserve. It’s an in thing, you no longer have to pay your neighbor just to spend some time to play with you.
  5. Playing against computers. In a more fancy term, the Artificial Intelligence. It gets boring when you get to play on your own and challenge yourself all over again. In this era, you don’t have to play alone and do the same stuff that you already know. Challenge the computer, with Artificial Intelligence, you will even get better in the gaming world.
