Humans have always loved to play games, from dice games in ancient Iran 5,000 years ago to chess and cards in the Middle Ages. While Victorians loved board games, the first video games appeared over 50 years ago. Today, fanaticism over console games is at an all-time high, with players arguing passionately why one console is better than another.
