Video Game

A video game is an electronic game that involves human interaction with a user interface to generate visual feedback on a video device. The word video in video game traditionally referred to a raster display device, but it now implies any type of display device that can produce two- or three-dimensional images. The electronic systems used to play video games are known as platforms; examples of these are personal computers and video game consoles. These platforms range from large mainframe computers to small handheld devices. Specialized video games such as arcade games, while previously common, have gradually declined in use. Video games have gone on to become an art form and industry.

    … did a surprising amount to flesh out an otherwise boring character. My favorite is the one above, in which Talion (voiced by the quite musical Mr. Troy Baker) sings a mournful tune in tribute to his fallen comrades and his lost family.
