Video Games Day

Video Games Day celebrates popular video games that stormed onto the market, and changed the way your kids play games.
Today, take some time to appreciate the technological achievements of the video game industry. Think about how far we’ve come since the days of the original Nintendo and Game Boy. Today’s games have advanced special effects and diversified themes that appeal to almost everyone.

Video games aren’t just for kids anymore. In fact, they have become very popular as group activities at parties. People crowd around televisions in homes and dorm rooms to battle their friends in adventure, sports, and music-themed competitions.

To celebrate Video Games Day, invite your friends over for some gaming!
If you are off from school (or if you are a big kid off from work), make this a marathon day for video games. Better still, invite a few friends and hold a competition. Just make certain that you have enough controllers.
