Future Gaming

This book is not about the future of video games. It is not an attempt to predict the moods of the market, the changing profile of gamers, the benevolence or malevolence of the medium. This book is about those predictions.

A sophisticated critical take on contemporary game culture that reconsiders the boundaries between gamers and games. This book is not about the future of video games. It is not an attempt to predict the moods of the market, the changing profile of gamers, the benevolence or malevolence of the medium. This book is about those predictions. It is about the ways in which the past, present, and future notions of games are narrated and negotiated by a small group of producers, journalists, and gamers, and about how invested these narrators are in telling the story of tomorrow. This new title from Goldsmiths Press by Paolo Ruffino suggests the story could be told another way. Considering game culture, from the gamification of self-improvement to GamerGate's sexism and violence, Ruffino lays out an alternative, creative mode of thinking about the medium: a sophisticated critical take that blurs the distinctions among studying, playing, making, and living with video games. Offering a series of stories that provide alternative narratives of digital gaming, Ruffino aims to encourage all of us who study and play (with) games to raise ethical questions, both about our own role in shaping the objects of research, and about our involvement in the discourses we produce as gamers and scholars. For researchers and students seeking a fresh approach to game studies, and for anyone with an interest in breaking open the current locked-box discourse, Future Gaming offers a radical lens with which to view the future.

Use Video Games to Drive Innovation, Customer Engagement, Productivity, and Profit! Companies of all shapes and sizes have begun to use games to revolutionize the way they interact with customers and employees, becoming more competitive and more profitable as a result. Microsoft has used games to painlessly and cost-effectively quadruple voluntary employee participation in important tasks. Medical schools have used game-like simulators to train surgeons, reducing their error rate in practice by a factor of six. A recruiting game developed by the U.S. Army, for just 0.25% of the Army’s total advertising budget, has had more impact on new recruits than all other forms of Army advertising combined. And Google is using video games to turn its visitors into a giant, voluntary labor force--encouraging them to manually label the millions of images found on the Web that Google’s computers cannot identify on their own. Changing the Game reveals how leading-edge organizations are using video games to reach new customers more cost-effectively; to build brands; to recruit, develop, and retain great employees; to drive more effective experimentation and innovation; to supercharge productivity…in short, to make it fun to do business. This book is packed with case studies, best practices, and pitfalls to avoid. It is essential reading for any forward-thinking executive, marketer, strategist, and entrepreneur, as well as anyone interested in video games in general.

This essay sheds light on the future of the video game industry and explicates how emerging technologies will revolutionize the video game industry. Moreover, why Esports have become popular is delineated in this essay. Furthermore, how to earn substantial money online so that you can afford to procure your own modern video games is expounded upon in this essay. The future of the video industry will not only be characterized by dynamism as it continues to metaphorically evolve, but will also be eminently auspicious for video game publishers, video game developers, and customers. The future of the video game industry will be more grandiose than ever envisioned, especially as emerging technologies further revolutionize the behemoth video game industry. In other words, the future of the video game industry will not be solely limited to shovelware mobile games pervading the video game industry. "The global gaming market was valued at $151,550,000,000 in 2019 and is expected to reach a value of $256,970,000,000 by 2025, registering a compound annual growth rate of 9.17% over the forecast period of 2020-2025. Game developers across emerging economies are continually striving to enhance gamer's experience, launching, and rewriting codes for diverse console/platforms, such as PlayStation, Xbox, and Windows PC, which are incorporated into one product provided to the gamers through the cloud platform. The emergence of cloud gaming" ("Gaming Market - Growth," n.d.) has helped to substantially drive video game industry growth. In the coming years, cloud gaming, mobile gaming, PC gaming, and even console gaming will become all the more prevalent. "Recent advances in advanced cloud technology have turned the idea of cloud gaming into reality. In cloud gaming, the server, where all the games are stored, does all the computation work, which includes game scene rendering, game logic processing video encoding, and video streaming" ("Gaming Market - Growth," n.d.). The rising popularity of Esports, gaming streams, and gameplay videos have also contributed to the growth of the behemoth video game industry. It stands to preponderantly reason that the future of the video game industry will not only allow the video game industry to reach an unprecedented pinnacle of success, but will also attract more competitors to enter the sizable video game industry. In the coming years, similarly to video streaming subscription services, such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, customers will have more video game streaming subscription services available to them with a broader selection of titles to choose from playing. In other words, for a monthly subscription fee of $5-$10 per month, customers will be able to have the option to stream a myriad of video games on their consoles or their PCs. In the coming years, video game streaming subscription services will not be limited to "Xbox Game Pass, PlayStation Now, Geoforce Now" ("The Impact Of," 2019), and Google Stadia. "This new sector is also seen as a serious competitor for the traditional game market" ("The Impact Of," 2019). The traditional game market is no longer the utmost lucrative segment of the sizable video game industry. The future of the video game industry will offer far more to customers than merely just traditional console games. The future of the video game industry will also offer more to gamers than "virtual reality and augmented reality" (Koss, 2020) video game experiences. In 2019, the video game industry generated over $6,300,000,000 in revenue (Koss, 2020) from "augmented reality and virtual reality" (Koss, 2020) video games. Much to the relief of gamers, "companies are busy making virtual reality experiences more consumer-friendly, and it is only a matter of time before both the weight and price of virtual reality headsets drop" (Koss, 2020). Augmented reality video games on the other hand do not require a bulky headset to play and allow gamers to "interact with reality" (Koss, 2020).

THE FASCINATING INSIDE STORY OF THE QUEST TO BUILD THE WORLD'S MOST AMBITIOUS PROFESSIONAL GAMING LEAGUE--AND THE RACE TO WIN ITS $1,000,000 PRIZE.

THE FASCINATING INSIDE STORY OF THE QUEST TO BUILD THE WORLD'S MOST AMBITIOUS PROFESSIONAL GAMING LEAGUE--AND THE RACE TO WIN ITS $1,000,000 PRIZE. Welcome to the high-stakes world of esports where shit-talking teenage gamers, billionaire sports franchise owners, and celebrity entrepreneurs are all competing to understand and conquer the fast-emerging future of entertainment. The burgeoning frontier of professional gaming has moved beyond the niche corners of the internet to become a global phenomenon, upending youth viewership for the major sports leagues and opening a generational rift over the nature of "athletics." Soon, professional video game competitions may well be as ingrained in our culture as Monday Night Football. YOUNG GUNS: Obsession, Overwatch, and the Future of Gamingtakes readers behind the scenes of the esports boom and into the lives of the gamers and game changers leading the charge, unfurling a wry, unexpected, and often hilarious narrative about the rise of professional gaming and the business of electronic sports. An avid gamer himself, author Austin Moorhead became fascinated by pro gaming, in particular the Overwatch League (OWL) after sports titans Robert Kraft, Stan Kroenke, and Jeff Wilpon each paid $20 million for a team. At the same time that he began investigating the inner-workings of the league, OWL launched esports into the American mainstream, inking TV deals with ABC and ESPN, selling out NBA stadiums for live competitions, and minting a new version of young pro athletes. Embedding with two top teams in the Overwatch League, the San Francisco Shock and the London Spitfire, as they embark on the inaugural season, Moorhead pulls back the curtain on the grueling practice schedules and spartan lifestyles of the league's most popular players. In addition to the "gamer houses" and competitions in which the pros hone their skills, Moorhead takes readers into the board room of Overwatch-developer Blizzard Entertainment, where entrepreneurs eager to capitalize on youth culture take bets on new esports franchises for tens of millions. The result is a rollicking story about the superstars of the future and the absurd collision of adolescent prodigies and high-stakes industry, an uproarious look at the future of sports and entertainment that is part Bringing Down the House, part Moneyball.

The Video Game Industry provides a platform for the research on the video game industry to draw a coherent and informative picture of this industry. Previously this has been done sparsely through conference papers, research articles, and popular science books. Although the study of this industry is still stigmatized as frivolous and 'only' game oriented, those who grew up with video games are changing things, especially research agendas, the acceptance of studies, and their interpretation. This book describes and defines video games as their own special medium. They are not pinball from which they grew, nor movies which they sometimes resemble. They are a unique form of entertainment based on meaningful interactions between individuals and machine across a growing sector of the population. The Video Game Industry provides a reference foundation for individuals seriously interested in the industry at the academic level. As a result, this book will serve as a reference in curricula associated with video game development for years to come.

This volume examines the structure of text-based Future Narratives in the widest sense, including choose-your-own-adventure books, forking-path novels, combinatorial literature, hypertexts, interactive fiction, and alternate reality games. How 'radical' can printed Future Narratives really be, given the constraints of their media? When exactly do they not only play with the mere idea of multiple continuations, but actually stage genuine openness and potentiality? Process-rather than product-oriented, text-based Future Narratives are seen as performative and contingent systems, simulating their own emergence.
