Most people engage in games for amusement. When you play a game, you increase your brain functionality, practice cognitive skills, and release the happy chemical called serotonin. Technological advancements in the gaming industry has increased the thrill and allure of playing games. Technology has brought about more visual stimulus, creativity, and as a result, satisfaction. Gaming has already broken out of niche corners of the world, and it will continue to advance. Technology is shaping the future of gaming. Continue reading to discover how tech can influence your gaming.

  1. Artificial Intelligence. A decade ago, artificial intelligence sounded like science fiction. Currently, things such as facial recognition and self-driven cars are part of our everyday lives. Video games are also part of this wave. Game designers have used AI to develop games, especially in non-player characters (NPCs). NPCs follow a script and are programmed to perform complex decision making. No matter how intelligent this may seem, NPCs can only do what is written in their code. Technology can influence this type of gaming by developing characters that can behave in all kinds of ways. For instance, an NPC can decide to shirk its duties to help you advance towards the next level.
  2. Touch Technology. Some years back, you used buttons and controls to play your games. Nobody thought of the possibility of enjoying your game through swiping and touching a screen. Touch technology is a game-changer in the IT industry. You can access a touch screen virtually anywhere, from smartphones to computers to tablets. Game designers are doing their best to take advantage of touch technology while creating games. All these efforts are on the verge of making gaming more interesting to the player.
  3. Portability. When we are shrinking our devices to make them portable, we cannot leave gaming behind. Gaming consoles and other devices are now easy to carry around. You can now enjoy your game anywhere and at any time. You no longer need to go to the TV and console to play a game. With the motivation of technology, gamers can now use their cell phones to play. Gaming accessories are also getting better thanks to technological advancement. For instance, the ducky 60% keyboard is the best you can find in the market. The keyboard allows you to customize its keys, has a nice touch, and is of high quality.
  4. Mobile 5G. If you have played an online game, the chances are that you have come across the spinning wheel that indicates that your game is loading. This happens due to low internet speed, and you probably know how frustrating it is. Telecommunication companies are in the early stages of adopting 5G to remedy this problem. 5G will be the best thing to happen to online gamers. This breakthrough will also create an effect where more people will get into mobile gaming


    Modern technology is full of potential. The influence of technology on the gaming industry will continue to create a desire to join the gaming population.
