    "I love to play the video games and this one is about war so there is much action to be had. The name of it is the Total War: Arena and it is soo good! You can even play it for free, online with other people that are also online. It is a war simulation game and boy is it a fun one, you should play too!"

      "I love playing games online, particularly with others, but my computer lacks the graphics capability that I need to play most games smoothly. Dota 2 is an awesome multiplayer game where you go on adventures with your team. Best of all (for me at least), you don't need a dedicated graphics card to play!"

      "I needed to play a popular game without a PC that was too expensive with a dedicated graphics card. I saw that graphics cards could go for upwards of 1000$! I began to play League of Legends and learned that I could play just as competitively without a high-end PC."

    DID YOU KNOW?

    Did you know that the gaming industry is regarded to be one of the main driving forces of technological advancement? Nowadays, the gaming world is not limited to the confines of the screen. The arrival of VR gaming has revolutionized the gaming industry. Video games are being played in three dimensions through virtual and augmented reality, with wearable headsets and locomotion devices. Consoles now come with features like facial recognition, voice recognition, and gesture control. Gaming laptops now come with terabyte capacities for memory, and gaming desktops are in a league of their own, which brought about the birth of the PC Master Race. These hardware upgrades paved the way for the advancement of computer graphics, since they are entirely dependent on the computing and processing power of the graphics processing unit. Games are now being released with 4K graphics, playable only through high-end graphics cards. It’s no wonder that the gaming industry is a lucrative sector, with over $108.4 billion in revenues in 2017. Better graphics mean a heftier price tag, since the cost of development is higher. Despite this, the support for the gaming industry is growing and will continue to grow. Gaming industry is projected to grow 8.2% every year until 2020 because of innovations in technology that in turn lead to more forward-thinking games.

      "Terraria is a great game, especially if you don't have a beefy PC. I don't have a graphics card at the moment, but I can run this game no problem and I've been having a blast. It's kind of like Minecraft, but is a side-scrolling platformer, so it won't stress out your machine and a bet most any computers built in the past ten years would play it alright."

It has all the attributes of other games but without overloading your system. They offer a story mode and a versus mode. Definitely give it a shot if you're looking for a fun platform fighter."

It's a PVP 2D action game made by an indie developer. It supports local multiplayer so it's great for LAN party. The graphics looks retro but very rich and pleasing. The action is fast and intense, best of all it runs smoothly on my pc due to the moderate system requirement."
