Video games have infiltrated many daily lives right around the world on computers, consoles and pocket devices. There has been much psychological research into the impact of these types of games upon players and all this was initiated some fifteen years ago. However, these can provide hours of fun and entertainment for so many millions of people and this convention will put you in touch with like-minded people.
