Where The Games Are
Gaming has been around for a long, long time. A really long time. Thousand of years ago, the ancient Mayans and Aztecs has highly organized team sports considered to be the forerunners of modern games like football, soccer, and cricket.

They took people way beyond experiences that we know are possible, and into the realm of that which is, at best, nearly impossible. In the last year, things have gone up a giant notch in terms of where and how people are playing video games. Tablet gaming, in particular, has seen a tremendous increase.
