Best Value Video Game Stocks

Video games are interactive games that you can play on a console, PC, mobile phone or using a virtual reality headset. The first video game was an interactive, simple tennis game, similar to the classic 1970s video game Pong, with the objective of keeping a virtual ball bouncing between two competing targets. In this early version, players twist knob to adjust the angle of the ball and press a button to hit the ball toward other player. Pong was developed in October 1958 by physicist William Higinbotham, and quickly grew to be hit with both players and observers at Brookhaven National Laboratory open house. Today, video games are much more complex and immersive, with branching storylines, HD graphics and distinct control systems. Video games are often produced by major tech corporations that issue stock, but many video games are also produced by independent development teams and released to online PC gaming marketplaces like Steam or gog. Com. Most complex video games are referred to as AAA Games, informal classification that indicates that the game was produced by a major publisher. AAA usually has high marketing and development budgets and are similar to films produced by major Hollywood studios like Disney or Universal Pictures. AAA Games might attract gamers with movie-like storylines, high quality rendering, expansion packs and more. Because of this, AAA Games are usually expected to sell more copies and produce more profit than Games released by smaller studios.
