Video games a lot more than a hobby or distraction.
They're a form of art. I'm sure you remember your very first video game console - mine was a Super Nintendo - and the many hours of fun you had on that machine.
Those were the good ol' days, right?
Consoles and gaming have evolved by leaps and bounds, and staggering amounts of games have been developed for each console. Each game represents hours and hours of hard work(most of the time) by the developers, artists, and programmers.
It's mind-boggling when you think about it.
Note: If you are a hardcore gamer, check out some nice monitors while you are at it 😀
This graphic takes you through some of the most popular consoles since the NES, how many games were produced for them, and how many copies the best-selling game sold.
