How Do You Buy Video And Computer Games?
Fun and games aren’t just kid stuff anymore. Video games–both computer-based and console games–are mainstream entertainment for adults, too. Indeed, experts talk about the “battle for the living room,” with game consoles rivaling digital video recorders (DVRs) and DVD players in power and features. Always start your shopping with the games you want to play. Not all games are available on all platforms. Game genres include action/adventure, educational, puzzle, role-playing/strategy, simulation and sports, but there is some overlap among them. See what platform the games you want are on. Some games are exclusive to one platform. Games fall into two general categories: computer games and console games (usually played on a Microsoft XBox or Sony PlayStation2). Look for these features in a computer game. System requirements: Make sure your computer’s processor, memory and video card meet the minimum requirements. Also be alert for special hardware, such as game pads or joysticks. (See Ho
