The gaming industry continues to be one of the fastest growing industries. From the novice to the expert and from young to old, millions of people spend their free time playing simulated sports or hunting enemies with friends from across the country. According to the Entertainment Software Association, 63 percent of American households are home to at least one person who plays video games regularly (3 hours or more per week), and Americans spend nearly $25 billion dollars per year on content, accessories and hardware to play games.
