Video games began to be produced in larger amounts in the 1970s due to the growing popularity of arcade game machines and homes consoles. According to some research video games, might have a significant impact on our behavior both positive and negative.

The beginning of computer entertainment can be dated back to 1947 when Cathode ray tube Amusement Device was created which was basically a missile simulator based on radar technology. The 1950s and 1960s brought in a couple of academic projects that could be also considered video games. These were, for example, Spacewar and Tennis for Two.

In 1961 an arcade video game Pong was created by Atari and this contributed to the fact helped to establish the video game industry. The success of video entertainment was growing bigger due to the appearance of such titles as Pac-Man or Space Invaders which were created n the 1970s.

  • adventure,
  • racing,
  • simulation,
  • strategy,

Sports games simulate the gameplay in sports competitions. It can be boxing, basketball, football, or ice hockey. The player’s attention needs to be focused here on controlling the athletes or managing a team from a manager.
