    Video games are a major aspect of technology these days. Ever since the 1970s, arcade games and home video game consoles have gained significant popularity. These computer systems basically work in the home with a control device that is handheld and a game cartridge that is plugged into the console. You can play by watching a television screen and using the controls. However, nowadays you can play all sorts of games online as well. There are even computer and game accessory stores located in most areas of the US that allow people to buy and sell new or used games. It takes many creators, manufacturers, and distributors to handle the massive video game market. Some of things that must be considered when video and arcade games are designed are strategy, rhythm, RPG functioning, sport levels, and cheat codes. Action sequences are also a major element of design. Before any new game consoles or cartridges are released, they are reviewed by professionals. This way, there are no flaws in the graphics or various game levels. Since virtual gaming is a major business, video games are also played on phones and online computers. However, depending on the video game you play, a controller may be required, along with a guitar, gun or steering wheel accessory. In this day and age, you can learn the most about arcade and video console games online. There is a deluge of data pertaining to this technology on the web. Most of the information is free if you simply do a search for video game systems and cartridges.
