“Games are a trigger for adults to again become primitive, primal, as a way of thinking and remembering.” — Shigeru Miyamoto (Japanese Video Game Designer, Creator of Super Mario)
Happy National Video Games Day from PASH! This means it’s time to dust off that old Nintendo and start slaying dragons and saving princesses. According to a new study released by the Entertainment Software Association, about 65% of Americans (about 210 million people) play video games on at least one type of device — a statistic that has been steadily increasing since the 1980s. From the early days of Pong and Pac-Man, gaming has made significant advancements not just with graphics, but demographics — 46% of gamers are female according to the ESA’s study. Whether you’re a seasoned gamer or a casual newbie, video gaming is a timeless hobby meant for all enthusiasts.
