In 1971, the arcade video game Computer Space was introduced in the market making it the first consumer video game then followed by Pong in 1972. In 1983, the video game market dwindled because of poor marketing and not-so-good quality games so the consumers turned to Nintendo, a Japanese multinational consumer electronics and video game company, Sega and Sony. During these times, video game companies developed methods to prevent a similar crash in the future.

Moving forward, the year 2000 paved the way for the video game to skyrocket especially because of the availability of the internet and digital distribution. Many independent video game development (indie games created by some individuals without the support financially and technically by large game publishers) introduced their version of video games widely known by 2010. By 2020, the video game industry earned the global market revenue estimated around $159 Billion and it will continue to grow.
