Video games have been around since the early 1990s, but it wasn’t until the arrival of mobile gaming in 2009 that the world finally saw a real shift.
That shift began with the launch of the Apple iPhone and its ubiquitous apps and games, which launched in 2010 and 2011.
The rise of mobile platforms like Android and iOS has made the game industry exponentially more dynamic, as more games are developed and released each year.
Now, thanks to the proliferation of smart devices like tablets, phones, and laptops, the gaming industry is increasingly open to a wider audience, and as such, video games have gained more of a foothold in the marketplace.
Nowadays, video game publishers and developers have a lot to do to keep their games relevant to a wide range of audiences.
As a result, the industry is in a much better position to continue to offer games to children today, as well as to capitalize on the next big wave of technology adoption.
What is a game?
A game is a computer-generated interactive narrative.
It’s a narrative in which the player interacts with the world, using a variety of skills and tools to solve puzzles, explore locations, and defeat enemies.
Some games use a mix of text and interactive elements to tell the story; others rely on graphics to enhance the experience.
The word game derives from the Latin word gamere, meaning “game.”
Games can be played in a number of ways: by a group of people, as a group, as part of a single project, or as an individual.
As with other forms of entertainment, interactive games have become much more accessible to kids in recent years, thanks in part to the availability of smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices.
Games can also be played offline, and some of the most popular games in the industry include games like Pokémon Go and Clash Royale, which let players explore their online Pokémon communities by using their smartphones and tablets.
Video games, like movies and music, are also much more popular with kids these days.
Many video games, including many popular titles in the video game genre, are available on mobile devices, but not every game can be accessed on a traditional TV.
And as more video games become available on streaming platforms like Amazon Video and Hulu, video gamers can easily stream their favorite titles to their devices without having to pay a monthly subscription fee.
As of late 2015, the number of games available for mobile devices was estimated at more than 1.5 billion, according to Nielsen.
Some popular titles that are available for smartphones include Angry Birds, Clash Royale (both iOS and Android versions), Farmville, The Sims 4, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
Some of the best-selling games for smartphones in the U.S. in 2015 included Pokemon Go, Super Mario Maker, Minecraft, and Minecraft: Xbox One Edition.
Some children’s favorite video games include Call of Duty: Ghosts, Pokémon Go, and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare.
What do you need to play a video game?
While video games are not technically a new genre, their popularity has been steadily increasing in recent decades.
They’re now being played by more kids than ever before, and the number has grown significantly since the late 1990s.
This growth has helped push the industry to develop better, more interactive games that are appealing to a broader range of gamers.
Today, there are more kids playing video games than ever.
The average age of a gamer in the United States is now 16 years old, up from 12 years ago, according a Pew Research Center study.
The number of kids who play video games is growing, too, according with the report, Video Games as a New Generation of Gamers: Are They the Future?
, which found that more than a third of the gaming audience was 12 to 15 years old at the end of 2014.
This has led to more and more children playing video gaming on devices like smartphones, while also allowing parents and teachers to engage more with their children in ways that were previously limited.
Games are increasingly used as part and parcel of the school day, with a growing number of students using games to learn and socialize.
Video game players spend an average of nearly a half hour a day playing video game, according the report.
They play games on average for about 12 hours a day.
And with a variety the range of games, it can be challenging for parents and kids to get the game in their hands quickly enough.
The Pew Research report also found that while there is a growing awareness of the need for video games in schools, there is still a lot of misinformation about video games.
In fact, according for example to the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST), more than 60 percent of schools do not currently have any games for children in grades K through 12.
There are also misconceptions about what constitutes a game and how to teach it, the report found.
These misconceptions have led to concerns about the safety of children in school and the need
