What is a video game?
A video game, in terms of this relief, is an electronic game (software) and includes the development of a game’s soundtracks.
A video game is an electronic game that is played through a video device, such as television, monitor, mobile phone, tablet device or handheld portable games machine.
The video game is the software and other electronically stored content and information, including the audio content, such as sound effects and soundtrack, and any filmed or animated sequences for narrative purposes or options to adapt the game to suit the desires of the player.
The game does not include the video device and equipment hardware that are required to play the game. Where a video game is designed to be played on a specific console such as an ‘X-box’, ‘Wii’, ‘Playstation’ or handheld device, such as ‘Nintendo DS’, the development of the hardware is not treated as part of the development of the game.
A game must have sufficient capability for a player to directly control actions and events in some way. There must be an uncertain outcome for the product to be a game, where the player’s actions have a meaningful result in the outcome.
