Video games are so much more than just a way of passing
time. As any gamer will tell you, playing something worthwhile is like living a
unique life in the shoes of characters you can fall in love with like

The list of gaming platforms - or potential gaming
platforms - is much longer than you think. As such, there are lots of
devices that you wouldn't ever associate with gaming but can in fact support
video games of varying graphics and pixel ratings.

in-built computer interface, others just happened to support games for some
