Let’s face it.

Life is never complete without games. From board games like Scrabble and Monopoly to classic video games like Super Mario and Pac-Man to portable games like Pokemon Silver and Crash Bandicoot to modern video games like Tekken and Gran Turismo to computer games like Solitaire and Minesweeper, to role-playing games like Diablo and Grand Theft Auto, you name it – we couldn’t get enough of it.

Let’s not forget today’s generation of video games like Overwatch and Destiny and online games like Ragnarok and Defense of the Ancients. Let’s also not forget today’s generation of franchise games like Resident Evil and Final Fantasy and mobile games like Pokemon Go and Mobile Legends.

But this article is not about the above-mentioned games.

It’s about the gaming trends worth looking out for.

And here are some of them:

Virtual Reality Games

Technology has done it, big-time. With the continuous rise of multi-player online role-playing games, so does the concept of virtual reality games – where one can fully experience a game just by employing VR headsest like Samsung’s Gear. Its nature is now deemed a legit source of multiple theories – with one being Japan’s popular anime Sword Art Online, where a certain VR game turned into a reality game and was only cleared after almost 3 years of players getting stuck in the VR world.

Regardless of theory, we can’t deny that virtual reality games already changed everyone’s perception about technology – one that will only make people more curious each day, no matter how the global gaming and hospitality industry thinks about it.

Augmented Reality Games

Technology has done it again, big-time. With the continuous rise of virtual reality games, so does the concept of augmented reality games – where one can truly experience a game just by employing AR glasses like Google’s Glass. Its nature, however, is still deemed an illegal source of multiple theories – with one even going far as what Sword Art Online’s recent movie, Ordinal Scale, implied about the AR world and everything in between.

Regardless of theory, we can’t deny that augmented reality games already set others’ bar about technology – one that will only make people more inspired each day, no matter how the global business presenting and other industries think about it.
