The Evolution of Video Game Systems
I used to be an arcade nut. I spent most of
my time in the local video games hot spots to play the latest
fighting, shooting, and racing games. I would also frequent the
video game stores at the mall with my friends. We would compete
against each other in popular arcade games like Street Fighter II
and Mortal Kombat. Video games were a teenagerís favorite pastime
back in the early 90ís. I must have spent a fortune in quarters in
those video games machine.
Itís almost the same when I would tell customers how much they had
spent on video rentals so far. I always find this quite amusing. The
customersí first reaction would usually be a wince; then they would
snicker at the ridiculousness of it all, but finally most of them
went home ticked off. I think some of them wanted to have their
money back. Thatís just the way people are. What they donít know
wonít hurt them. Well, most of the time anyway. Nevertheless, when
it comes to arcade and video games systems, millions of people were
hooked long ago. The only significance nowadays is that modern video
games systems for homes have become more advanced and sophisticated.
Arcades nowadays are not as popular as it was during my time. Most
kidís these days are investing in video games system of their own.
Systems like Game Cube, Playstation 2, and Xbox are very popular.
Why would kids go to local arcades and to spend their money on video
games, when they can simply receive a system of their own during
their birthday or at Christmas? Modern personal video games are not
very expensive and most kids can own portable versions like the
Gameboy Advance Sp. The advancement in gaming makes personal video
games more fun and exciting.
Video games during my childhood and teenage years seem prehistoric
when compared to contemporary video games systems. The first system
I owned when I was in elementary school was an Atari. Then later
down the road, video games systems evolved into Nintendo. These
games are obsolete in comparison to modern systems, but they
represent the evolution of video games into their present status.
This evolution will only continue and you can expect more exciting
developments to video games systems. Hop online and discover the
latest games, models, and accessories.
