There are millions of kids across the world that are enthralled with their new gifts on birthdays, Christmases or simply because they got higher ranks and parents are very happy. Among all, video game is something that is more valuable than any gifts. Gone are the days when video games used to be ‘hot favorite' among kids, children and adolescents, in today's world, even adults cannot keep themselves aloof from this mesmerizing ‘pack of entertainment'.

Video games can be based on home computer systems but for the most part, these video games are operated on handheld game consoles having special devices and joysticks. It can also be played on different multimedia consoles or multimedia platforms. With the advancement and betterment in electronics, those devices that were having wires are not wireless and most of them are now working on infrared systems.

The earliest example for video games goes back in the year of 1947, where the idea for a ‘Cathode Ray Tube Amusement Device' was thought by Thomas T. Goldsmith Junior and Estle Ray Mann. That first ever attempt for video game contained an analog device, which used to allow a user to control a vector drawn dot on the screen to shot a missile on the targets, which were described by drawings that were fixed to the display-screen.

The advancement in technology was obvious and so the craze for the video games among children. Revolutionary products like The Xbox 360 multimedia platform, PlayStations, the Nintendo DS created mileposts in the genre of video games and those video games were much better than just cartoons or flash designed tanks, bullets, arms and other video games characters. The software used there is hi-tech and capable enough to get you realistic flairs. The sound quality and graphics have reached their best and still there are chances of more betterment. Video games have different genres like action, arcade, board games, horror, movie-based games and many more.

Today, these game systems are equipped with wireless technologies and many of them feature USB 2.0 connectivity. Video games can be played with great effect of surround-sound or speakers could be built-in. Right from the mini-sized video games as we have in watches and cellular phones to big-sized HDTV screen mode games are always there to get you to another world of fantasies where you are the hero and you decide, how your world should be.

The Realism of Video Games

If you are aging nearly about 30s,do you remember the games you used to play with some cents paying on the counter and then getting a ‘video game coin' and then put it into machine and then, you favorite red or blue capped ‘Mario' is ready to jump on the ducks? You used to take crowns that appeared like mushroom to make you bigger and then taking flowers to fire that could bump on the ground!

Now, change the scene and look at your kid who plays with some PlayStation or Nintendo DS or Xbox 360 multimedia platforms with hi-tech gadgets on hero's hand with extraordinary graphics giving realistic appearance of the enemies and the sound of bullets making your heart beating faster. You really get afraid when you play ‘The Mummy' or ‘Undying' with lights off and sounds on! Video game manufacturers now do not believe that those ‘cartoon' character pleases today's advanced generation anymore and hence, they are in more idea that describes the realism of the video games.

The world is moving towards globalization and simultaneously, advancement and betterment in latest technologies is something like ‘never ending' story. Sky is the limit and you never know Xbox, PSs and Nintendo may come up with something that is more realistic than your own real world! The realism of the video games is not limited just to the action games; you now have realistic games having real players' and teams' names. You have real kings and pawns on the chess-board. It now really looks funny when you play oldest version of chess with flash-designed pieces with no note of 3D graphics.

Manufacturers are now aware of the surroundings that carry real news and those events can be utilized very well that can catch everybody's eyes and while children are playing, adults too get attracted. You can have the real Gulf-War or Afghanis fighting for their survival. Your hero also needs to fight against Nazis and rescue soldiers that are kept somewhere in the castles across the country.

‘Need For Speed', ‘The Medal Of Honor', ‘Spider Man', ‘Matrix' etc have either based on the real events, the movies or they are based on today's generations' passion. There are many techniques and theories as to the dearth of reality-based video games. The advancement of video game graphics can turn it easier to make real world wars, conflicts and issues appear that are much, more, real, on the screen with real sound effect.
