A console game is a form of interactive multimedia used primaraly for entertainment. The game consists of manipulable images (usually accompanied by sound). which are generated by a video game console, and displayed on a television.

Although a relatively new activity, it is now probably the most widely participated leisure activity, with most younger people playing at some level or other.

Console games are normally played in the home, although there are mobile (personal) systems available that can be carried with you.
Competitive Tournaments are contested in suitable public venues.

Console games can be played by any age, although often considered a game of the young, mainly due to the fact that they have been brought up with this form of technology.
There are a whole range of games specifically designed for young children.

To play well a player needs good hand eye co-ordination, and essentialy, "fast mental reflexes", these quickly develop through practise.

Console Games are very much an activity of the modern age and technology, and as such are evolving rapidly. Video games generally each contain different game play, objectives, goals, control-schemes, characters, and other features. Each video game is usually contained on a specifically designed multimedia disc or cartridge, which are generally sold separately from the console and each other. In order to play the specific game, you need the specific console for which it was designed.

No essential dedication is necessary to take part in this recreation, but practise will, as in most competitive activities increase your performance.

A past criticism of console games was that players did not get enough physical exercise(especially the young), while playing console games. This criticism has been rectified by the introduction of physically interactive games, these often act to stimulate interest in the sport they are artificially replicating.

It is particularly disturbing to some adults that a minority of video games allow children to act out crimes, and reward them for doing so. These games designed for the adult market should be restricted from children play by adult supervision.
