Electronic gaming is one of the fastest growing industries nationwide and increasingly appeals to families as a recreational option. In recent studies by the Entertainment Software Association (ESA); it is reported that parents are playing games more often than ever—and not just with their kids, but as a way to unwind and spend time together. The results show that forty-nine percent of parents surveyed said they play games “to spend time together doing something [we] both enjoy.” Thirty-five percent of parents say they play computer and video games. Further, eighty percent of gamer parents say they play video games with their kids and sixty-six percent feel that playing games has brought their families closer together.
The latest electronic gaming products in the IGX Exhibit provide players with a more interactive experience. Sony’s new Guitar Hero 5 turns gamers into rock stars and Nintendo’s Wii Sports featuring bowling, tennis and boxing gives participants an opportunity to test their skills against other gamers. Up to seventeen of the latest games rated “E” (Everyone), “T” (Teen), “T10” (Teen) and “C” (Children) provide a variety of challenges for (fair or event) visitors of all ages.
