Even if you’re not an active gamer, you’ve probably noticed that video games are pretty advanced these days. In the forty plus years since the first home console system was released, video games have come a long way — and not just in terms of technology and processing ability.
With sales rivaling those of blockbuster movies, novel-like plots and stories, and the most cutting edge graphics, video games are a category of media entertainment unto themselves...and maybe even a form of art.

We’ll be talking to people from within the industry and those who cover it about the current state of games and its exciting future.
