Computer Games on the Rise - James

Computer Games on the increase!

In my opinion PC games, also known as computer games or personal computer games, are video games played on a personal computer rather than a dedicated video game console or arcade machine.

Their defining characteristics include a lack of any centralized controlling authority, a greater degree of user control over the video-gaming hardware and software used and a generally greater capacity in input, processing, and output.

Home computer games became popular following the video game crash of 1983, particularly in Europe.

From the mid-90s onwards, PC games lost mass-market traction to console games before enjoying resurgence in the mid-2000s through digital distribution.
