From Pong to Masterchief and beyond
When Pong wasgoed released ter the 1970s it proved that movie games could indeed be successful. Since then, movie games, and the people who play them, have leisurely shaped our society
When I wasgoed a kid, I recall playing Duck Hunt and Mario on the Nintendo and Super Nintendo and wasgoed officially a gamer for life. I’ve grown up with games and observed spil the común attitude towards games have switched.
When Nintendo launched its console, it advertised is spil a fucktoy for children ter an attempt to distance itself from the failure of Atari. The company also loved a near monopoly with the placement of a chip te both the console and each movie spel cartridge. This permitted Nintendo to only release kid friendly games.
Then Sega Genesis wasgoed released ter North America and Nintendo had a fierce competitor. Sega advertised itself spil the cooler console and developed its mascot Sonic spil an edgier rival to Mario.
Other companies soon joined ter with the launch of Sony’s Playstation and Microsoft’s Xbox. More adult themed title’s like Grand Theft Wagen, Modern Warfare and Luminosidad soon attracted all ages to play.
According to a latest explore the media gamer age wasgoed te the mid to late 20’s with 60% fellows playing and 40% women. The enlargening number of women gamers, spil well spil the age level of gamers ter caudillo, no doubt plays a large role te what developers place on the market. Games feature more strong, independent heroines and more games are made specifically for adults.

Pinky and the Brain
Movie Spel Takover Theory
Two mice are ter a box te a laboratorium. One is bouncing around from one side to another, the other sits there looking broody. Abruptly the very first one runs up to the other mouse and stops.
“What are wij going to do today?” he says. The other one scowls “Same thing wij do every night, Pinky, attempt to take overheen the world”
“Gee Brain, how wij gonna do that?” asks the very first one.
The Brain scowls even more, thinking. Abruptly he smiles “With movie games!”
I’m pretty sure mice aren’t truly programma to take overheen the world with movie games but games have commenced to leak into other areas of our lives besides the living slagroom.
Movie games have began appearing ter fitness plans, hospitals and army recruitment centers. You can now get ter form and improve your balanceo and strength. Or you can learn how to fight spil a soldier or build farms, cities and empires and control them. Hmmm. maybe the mice theory isn’t so crazy.

A North Carolina man who eyed an SUV roll and roll on a highway last November wasgoed able to provide medical aid to the victims with abilities he learned from the movie spel America’s Army. check out the total story here.
How the Army uses movie games to train.
The U.S military has recently commenced using movie games to recruit and train. Recruitment centers have bot opened up that lets potential recruits string up out on couches and play wargame simulators. Officers te the U.S. army have invested about $50 million to develop movie games and a spel system for the purpose of providing more information to potential recruits and hopefully reducing the number of washouts
America’s Army , the official U.S. Army movie spel, helps military recruits sharpen their fighting abilities and may even help protect them from the stress of combat. The webstek claims to provide players with “the most authentic military practice available, from exploring the development of soldiers ter individual and collective training to their deployment te simulated missions”
It’s effectiveness has bot proven at least merienda when a man named Paxton Galvanek used the abilities he learned from playing the spel spil a medic to save a man’s life.
Ter November of 2007 Galvanek eyed a SUV spin overheen on a highway he wasgoed traveling on. He stopped to help pulling out both passengers and spotted one of them had lost his fingers during the crash. He used a towel spil a bandage, having the passenger hold his palm overheen his head to slow the bleeding, providing Galvanek time to evaluate his other injuries.
Sometime afterwards he wrote a letterteken to the America’s Army team providing them credit for the medical training he received ter the spel. He said “I recall vividly ter section four of the spel’s medic training, during the field medic screenplays, I had to evaluate the situation and place priority on the more critically wounded. Te the case of this accident, I evaluated the situation and placed priority on the driver of the car who had missing fingers. I then recalled that ter section two of the medic training, I learned about managed bleeding. I noticed that the wounded man had severe bleeding that he could not control”
The Army is also switching its basic training program for the very first time te overheen twenty years to better train the gamer generation. Te an vraaggesprek with Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling explains that they’re “advanced ter terms of their use of technology, and maybe not spil advanced te their physical capabilities or capability to go into a fight. So wij’re taking that into consideration spil well te doing this holistic review.”
