Posted by Vasim Tamboli
The rapid advancement in science and technology has revolutionized the world of gaming. Among other things, the improvement in technology has also exercised a profound influence on gaming. With portable devices like mobile phones and PSP, you can amuse yourself by playing games at anyplace of your choice. Gone are those days when one used to play black-and-white games “like pong” and “monster maze”. This is the era where artificial intelligence (AI) has made a successful break-through in the gaming world. Undoubtedly, the gaming industry is hard hit by the technological evolution!

It is amazing witness that some of the modern games have evolved to such a level that they provide the players with more-than-real experience and they would continue doing so, to the point when the experience becomes unbelievable!

Video Gaming

“It’s a matter of immense pleasure that the gaming industry is always heading forward, always challenging its limits” says john Anthony from Game Period. Let’s explore various ways in which the advancement in technology will influence the future of video gaming:

Virtual reality

3D technology has existed since a century ago but it was not used in the gaming world due to its exorbitant cost. It’s until recently that 3D technology has surfaced not just in the movies, but in modern video games to. The elevation has reached to such a level that one has difficulty in differentiating a game from a real experience. This can be called an incredible achievement that has brought great happiness to amateurs! What the future has in store for the players after 3D?

Peripheral screens for gaming

As the portable devices like mobile phones, I pods and tablets (among others) have been accessible to the masses, the console battle between the 3 prime companies (Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft) has augmented that that will make a major breakthrough by formulating peripheral video games for the contestants.

Smart glass

Microsoft is not ready to stay behind in the competition as Sony has devised an Xbox “Smart glass”. This feature provides you with an extra tool that allows you to have an enhanced and amplified experience!

Sony Cross- play

Sony has taken a stride forward and has decided to coalesce play station 3 consoles with their portable devices. This feature allows you to halt game on one device and start playing on the other device.

Open source gaming

It’s good to have cheap home-made mobile games that have captivated the participants. For instance “samurai vengeance” is an android powered game that is accessible to the mobile users. The companies are promoting the concept that games should be low-priced and affordable to buy.

Cloud gaming

As the internet connectivity and speed has become faster and reliable, the era has of cloud gaming has dawned that gives you quick access to latest video games. Now you don’t have to wait for the updates in order to play supreme-quality video games. All you need to have is a reliable internet connection and you can play the latest games available to your heart’s content!

Relation Between Games and Studies

This infographic explains why games should be added in the educational syllabi. Nowadays, children are grown up in an environment where they develop a continuous sense of affiliation with the modern technology and gadgets; therefore, whenever children see such things, they feel at home with them. On the other hand, if children are given formal books at very early age, not only this would be troublesome for them, but it will also reduce their learning to a minimum because they aren’t accustomed to learning from books. The most important thing that we need to consider is that games are user-friendly educational technology which children love. Their familiarity with the games urges them more and more to play games.

It is not just a blind belief that games help children in their educational pursuits, but is also proved by different research. One prominent among them is the research made by Paul Howard Jones, who discovered that how exactly games help children to increase their creativity. The most important reason behind this is that games increase the level of dopamine in the brain, and dopamine is associated with creativity. Dopamine is also associated with making connections between neurons in our brains. Thus, the stronger the connections are, the easier it will be for us to remember things. The second important attribute of dopamine is that it increases our concentration level. Thus once all these connections are created in the brain, they make the physical basis for learning.

Another important reason why games should be added in the educational syllabus is that games motivate children. It is an acknowledged fact that we do things efficiently that we like because we are motivated by our desire. In a similar manner, as children are motivated by games, this motivation can be channelized in a positive manner for learning. “When students will play games, they will be making different actions, and if some action goes wrong, they will develop the ability to accept things instead of blaming others or throwing accusations at others,” says Kyle Ward who works at Game Period. Thus, games, in the longer run, will make them responsible persons.


Games are also responsible for the skill development in children: for instance, when children play games, they develop many important skills like problem-solving, collaboration, negotiation, and communication. All these skills are very important for their practical lives. There are different types of games available for children of different ages.
