Well, if you want to look it that way. Then yes it is. Is this the highest that will ever be? And of course not.
Games and gaming and Unblocked Games is something that is constantly developing day by day. As I say this every day there are 20 new games that are being played today ,let’s say this, Steam. And there are 1000 games that are developing each and every day. But lets leave games for a second and look at all those fancy tournaments with great deal of signed up professional teams and professional players. So called gamers. Which, you must agree, isn’t really that much a professional word. For you to be a professional gamer you must spend at least 5,000 hrs playing one game and being in top 100. That’s the difference between “gamer” and “professional gamer”.
Games trough tournaments are conquering the World today. Very game has its own tournament and regulations. Games like Counter-Strike, World of Warcraft, Dota, League of Legends (which I’m most familiar with). If you are a gamer and want to become professional one, beside 5,000 hours and being in top 100, you must be member of some “gaming houses” like FNATIC, SKT1, MYM. These are the best of the best that you can play. You can also create your own game house. Why not… Have some gamer friends, you are good at the game, why not make such a move. Maybe you get lucky and win around 10 million dollars of one good tournament after taxes of course. You are smiling, well stop and go and get them.
Gamers aside lets talk a bit about games. You might say, oh I know games, well you don’t.
Yo gamers, chill. You know how to play games , I know that. Lets step aside and look back for a moment.
First game ever made is, guess what, Ping Pong. Didn’t expect that, right? Well it’s true. In October 1958, Physicist William Higinbotham created very simple tennis game called Ping Pong that was attraction to people at Brookhaven National Laboratory. It all started with Ping Pong, amazing. Popularity of video games hit the floor around 1970’s. Everyone in that period went out to play “video games” at arcade houses. It was very big hit back in the day.
After that, people started buying consoles when 1977 microprocessor-based consoles were made. That was quite a ,,boom,, for the market. Yep, console was only electronic video game service people had back in the day.
You might ask, but where are computers? Didn’t forget them. First computer game was developed by Stephen Russell at MIT somewhere in the 1962. Game was called “Spacewar! “ . First game, black screen with white dots very simple. And look at us now. Every house has at least one computer or lap-top and internet connection. It couldn’t get any better then that. I’m just asking… What is next?
My opinion is that gamers created all of this, they always wanted more. If you think for a second if there isn’t us, celebrities would not exist. We would never find out about Justin Bieber or David Bowie. If fans never existed – gamers, there would be no games. Community is something that is moving people forward.
I would to take your precious gaming time and talk about “my men” Leslie Peter Benzies. You might ask yourself, who is that men? What is he talking about? Well ladies and gentlemen Leslie Benzies is, was President of Rockstar North. Programmer, game designer and game producer who produces GTA III (Grand Theft Auto III) and many subsequent versions to GTA V/GTA Online. Started to show his interest in early ages. When he was only 11 years old his father bought him Dragon 32 computer. Nothing special right, hold that thought for a second. He, by himself, learnt how to program and produced his first video game.
His professional career as game programmer started in 1995 at DMA Designs ( now Rockstar North) where he was team lead developing the Nintendo 64 platform game Space Station Silicon Valley. This game was released in October 1998. And he now owns Rockstar North. Leslie made $1 bilion in revenue in just three days with ,world wide familiar game, Grand Theft Auto V. Sure, not by himself, he had “some” assistance. But 1 billion in three days, wow. I look up to Mr. Leslie Peter Benzies, I think you should too.interesting people
