Do you think you are addicted to some games too?
Gaming is a multi billion dollar industry and makes more money than Hollywood movies. There are many video games that individually generated revenue in billions of dollars. Today. I will talk about one of those games which is Commandos Call of Duty series and made over $3 billion by the end of 2009. This game is composed of several versions such as Behind the Enemy Lines, Beyond the Call of Duty, Men of Courage, Destination Berlin and more recently Strike Force.
The newer versions are three-dimensional with advanced gaming features making them look more realistic. But the older version ‘Behind Enemy Lines’ and ‘Beyond the call of Duty’ were classic games. Just like we cannot ignore the classic video games of old 80s such as Pacman and Tetris similarly these earlier versions of Commandos were classic even with a two-dimensional gameplay.
Not sure why but after every six months (more or less) there arrives a need to install those old versions of commandos and play from the very first stage. I would say there are people on planet that are more than addicted to this game even after several years, so I need addiction help. This made me complete this game more than 10-15 times as I am not sure the exact number myself! Some of my friends are facing same problem making me think this game is perfect masterpiece and this sounds true when we look at the amount of profit it received.
I think these cool voiceovers are one of those reasons that repeatedly attracts me back to the game: “Coming right over sir”, “Are you crazy?”, “Wish I could do that Sir”, “Yaaa”, “Alfalista”, “Alarm alarm”, “Consider it done boss” and the list goes on. I could …
The amount of video game use we see in society today is arguably inescapable. Mobile games such as; Candy Crush, Game of War, or Clash of Clans, record daily revenues in the millions, and someone is bound to recognize one if not all of these game names. This exposure to gaming in everyday light seems to be bringing in a new and unseen age in gaming, where gaming could be seen as a sport.
Ever since the first two people booted up “Pong” on the Atari 2600, gaming has been competitive. When you think about it, playing a game of soccer and playing a video game aren’t all that different. The object is always to win the game but the level of competition and players in the game can vary. Growing up I played Call of Duty on a fairly competitive level but I had no idea how big the competitive gaming industry would grow to be. The growth in this industry can be traced to a number of factors. The financial growth in the gaming industry has been incredible. The recent stance that “nerd culture” has taken in the popular media through means such as The Big Bang Theory. The push by people who genuinely enjoy gaming culture and want to see it get a spot in the limelight has brought gaming into everyday life for the general public.
So what is causing video games to turn into a source of entertainment that people would watch from home like they would football or soccer? The answers might surprise you. In July of 2014 “Defense of the Ancients” or DOTA was played by teams around the world for a community raised prize pool totaling $10,923,980 U.S. dollars. Teams of five would play against one another and eliminate the competition as …
Major League Gaming (MLG) is the home of professional gaming and it has been since 2002. Today we are in 2015, professional gaming has been around for 13 years and has grown tremendously since it started. The atmosphere, locations, games / consoles, and prizes have all changed in these past 13 years.
When Major League Gaming first started most people thought of it as a joke more than anything. People thought, professional gaming really? Yes really professional gaming was a thing then. It did not get a lot of attention from outsiders and or non-gamers, but that would change. The atmosphere at the beginning of MLG was nothing spectacular, the only emotional feeling you could get would be from the players, and the tiny amount of spectators. It was equivalent to watching a sports game with a tiny amount of viewers. Over the time period the atmosphere grew to a whole new level; over time of course. Today the atmosphere is crazy. You can feel the intensity as a viewer, you can see the hype from the players, and there are actual crowds of people watching. Not only are they watching but they are supporting their team, just like a sporting event. Fans make signs, and cheer for their favorite teams and players. Looking into the future, this will only continue to grow. There will be more fans as time goes on and that means more of an atmosphere and excitement. Also, as time goes on new players will come into the scene and add more excitement to the atmosphere. I guess we will see what happens.
At the beginning of MLG tournaments were held in banquet halls. The events were held in these locations for a while. I do not know when MLG had gotten their arena but currently …
