Video games have become a more complex medium than ever before.
Gone are the days where you just jumped on turtles and went castle to castle, or an old man in a cave gave you a sword before you headed on your way. Now we have vast open worlds with amazingly realistic graphics, interwoven with narratives that can tell stories lasting centuries in a single title.
