Social Media Marketing Agency, fishbat, Inc, analyzes the increasingly social nature of video gaming as the Atari video game company celebrates its 40th birthday on June 27, 2012. Millions of games everywhere could pay homage to the first video game released by Atari, a simple two dimensional game known as “Pong.”
"Video game consoles were a form of very early social sharing. Not everyone could afford one, so groups of people would get together and play video games. Fast forward to 2012, and we can see the evolution of the video game from a micro social entity to the massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) that they are today. Millions of people play these games, networking, communicating, and making friends with people in the same neighborhood and across the globe. There are hundreds of stories of couples who meet online through MMORPGs," says Eileen McGovern of fishbat, Inc.
Even on the smaller scale, as in Facebook games, one of the main points of those games is to connect with friends and make new friends. The computer industry can credit the computer gaming industry for part of its growth, as computers had to grow and evolve quickly in part due to the requirements of new games.
Video games in the United States have helped to spawn a multibillion dollar market. Whether they are game developers, hardware manufacturers, or even the merchandise lines that inevitably come out, this is all progeny of the video games. Multitudes of movies have also sprung forth from video games.
