Video games have been extremely popular since the 1980s and show no sign of slowing down due to the rapid growth of storytelling, graphics, movement mechanics, load times and cost. Game console companies such as Odyssey, Atari, Dreamcast, SEGA, Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft have all made a huge impact on growing the gaming market and creating loyal fans.
