Video games have changed different media forms; the games are included in everything from music to film, which the mass receives and consumes very well. Not only that, even in the education sector, we have seen a new change due to console or video games that help teachers and students communicate innovatively; one such example is the educational games Brain Age.
In 2020, the gaming industry value increased to the whopping price of $197 billion, which is still expected to grow by $268 billion in 2025. The reason is that the developing video gaming industry has started to invest in several other sectors apart from Online games, including esports, video game streaming, and console gaming, which are popular among gamers these days. In the industry of Esports, they organize video game competitions across the world that have single games as well as multiplayer. The participants who won these competitions won a heavy prize, making the players gain celebrity status in the gaming community. On the other hand, mobile gaming has also become a convenience for the average person as they can play games they like without investing in a gaming console or a PC.
