The input device used for games, the game controller, varies across platforms. Common controllers include gamepads, joysticks, mouse devices, keyboards, the touchscreens of mobile devices, and buttons, or even, with the Kinect sensor, a person's hands and body. Players typically view the game on a video screen or television or computer monitor, or sometimes on virtual reality head-mounted display goggles. There are often game sound effects, music and, in the 2010s, voice actor lines which come from loudspeakers or headphones. Some games in the 2000s include haptic, vibration-creating effects, force feedback peripherals and virtual reality headsets. In the 2010s, the video game industry is of increasing commercial importance, with growth driven particularly by the emerging Asian markets and mobile games, which are played on smartphones. As of 2015, video games generated sales of USD 74 billion annually worldwide, and were the third-largest segment in the U. S. entertainment market, behind broadcast and cable TV.
Words. Games have a lot of them. Some of them are just the sounds bandits make when you shoot arrows in their face, or phrases that have become so ingrained into videogame culture they’re impossible to ignore. Others are surprisingly meaningful, and might even teach you a thing or two about life. We couldn’t choose just 25 of them, or even 50, so we settled on a round 100. Get ready for a schooling in videogames, people, as some of these quotes might even bring a tear to your eyes. Hey, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
