Video Game

From BC$ MobileTV Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Video Games are electronic content (via programmed software and/or hardware) designed to provide entertainment value via a combination of user interfaces and challenges to the user.



In the 2010s a new category of "extreme/professional gaming" started to emerge where some of the best gamers in the world or most-skilled at specific games will take each other on in tournament with Round-Robin and/or Bracket structure to decide a final winner. In addition, some games lend themselves well to Team-based E-Sports Tournaments. This genre of event has grown so quickly that it has found its way into the gambling world through Vegas casinos and Lotteries worldwide for betting on outcomes.

RetroPie is a gaming system emulation platform designed to run on RaspberryPI, Arduino or potentially any other Android/Linux/Unix based device. It can either be run as an OS from an SGD card, or as an application from another OS (i.e. Debian/Ubuntu/Raspian, Fedora/RedHat, CentOS, etc).

Multiplayer Games

Multiplayer Games use telecommunication technologies to connect players to one another via a gaming network. This may require dedicated servers (as in a traditional multi-client/server system), or, may transmit data directly between player consoles via P2P communication.

Online Games

Online Games allow people to share scores, play as teams, or play against one another remotely, usually over a computer or mobile data network but sometimes also over cable network or telephone modem.


In many ways, the successor to both Online Games and Multiplayer Games are ironically enough a combination of the two, called Massively Multiplayer Online Games ( MMOG) and their close relative Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games ( MMORPG).
