Video games have come a long way just in the past few decades since their creation. During the late 1970s, some chain restaurants installed large, free-standing video games to capitalize on the hot new fad. The players, who could record their high scores and were determined to win their space at the top of the list, were limited to competing with other players on the same screen.
In addition to gaming consoles becoming popular in commercial centers and chain restaurants in the US, the early 1970s also saw the beginning of personal computers and gaming consoles becoming a regular household item. Technological advancements eventually came with a new styles of gameplay, and as the decades wore on, Gaming Tech advanced exponentially and players were met with unlimited options for opponents and games.
