I got my PlayStation 4 this week, and I’ve spent a lot of time with a few of its new features.

Nintendo’s 3DS and Sony’s PS Vita are both fantastic portable gaming consoles, and tablets like the iPad have a great game selection, but generally games for these systems are different from the games released for home consoles.

I've bought a few new games recently: Pokémon Y, Kingdom Hearts 1.5, New Super Luigi U and Infinity Blade III. But, honestly, I haven't had a lot of time to play any of them. I've been immersed at work in front of a computer screen.

For as long as I’ve been gaming, console games have been played on the couch in front of a TV, and PC games up close to a computer monitor.

Nintendo started selling the Nintendo DS in 2004, and since then, there have been more than 153 million sold. It’s the best-selling handheld game console in history. / Google Images / Creative Commons

Music in video games has come a long way from the bleeps and bloops heard in the very first games.

Way back in March when I was at the PAX Gaming Festival in Boston, I got a chance to play several amazing games before they were ready for store shelves. One of those games, Story War, is finally available.

The Resistance is a card game for up to 10 people. You can play this with your friends, but I should caution that they probably won’t be your friends during the game.

Today, most video games are released for the Xbox, the PlayStation and PC. The experience is largely the same on all three of these platforms, so it doesn’t really matter where you play the game. In the 1980s and ‘90s, however, games were often exclusive to one console or another, so unless you had multiple consoles, your gaming experience may have been very different from your neighbor’s.
